Over the next few months, there's going to be a ridiculous amount of jockeying for the title of "World's Most Powerful Cellphone." This week's contender is the long-rumored HTC "Pyramid," which is now officially the HTC Sensation, coming from T-Mobile sometime this summer on its HSPA Plus 4G network. I got a look at it briefly yesterday.

While ordering my weekly supply of bagels and lox at my local kosher-style deli, Andrew, one of the managers with whom I am acquainted (we're fellow Met fans, God help us) asked me an odd question. He'd heard about the new iPad 2 and wanted to know if any of the other tablet PCs he had heard of were "better." Over the next few weeks and months, the tech and mainstream media will try their best to answer that question. They'll make a big deal how this tablet is less or more expensive than iPad/iPad 2, how it's got better or worse this or that specs, more of this or that input jack, that it does X or Y better or worse, how the operating systems are easier or harder or more or less intuitive, etc. This is all nonsense. You cannot compare the iPad to any other tablet. Find out why after the jump.
