Apple gets away with selling a portable handheld at more than double the cost and selling twice as much.

Yea, but to be fair the iPad does do a lot more than the 3DS does. Overpriced? Yea I would say so, but still worth much more than a 3DS is.

An iPAD isn't even a portable gaming system like the 3DS is. This is almost like comparing phone sales to 3DS sales. I dunno. I personally wouldn't compare them, but ok.

iPad is a tablet, not a gaming system. Two completely separate audiences. Few people on this site would admit to enjoy playing a game on an iOS device over an actual game system.

Ipad does a lot more than the 3ds and its gaming capabilities continue to grow. Nintendo should face it: they didn't capture casuals.

In case you don't know, the 3DS launched in FEBRUARY 2011, not in January. And it was only in Japan and on the end of the month.

Obviously the 3DS has sold more because the Powerbook was discontinued after Apple switched to Intel processors.
Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach. Those that can't do or teach become politicians.
