In general, how does the Android OS compair to iPhone/iTouch in response time?
I would say that the device is very responsive, especially considering it was a prototype not a fully optimized production device. I was running several applications and it was really snappy.
How does it compare to iPad? Well I didn't have an iPad to compare, but from my experience with an iPad I would say that it would be slightly better than Samsung. But like I said, this was a prototype and iPad is for now still a single task device, so it should have no slowdowns.
The more realistic comparison would be production TAB versus iPad with iOS4.
