Your car analogy is off. Were not talking about spending $35K vs $80K rather $300 vs $500. You have long had a negative view on Apple products so this doesn't surprise me at all. From my experience their products are better, much better than most of the competition. It isn't just the developers but the product as a whole.
Apple makes great products. They just price them higher than they need to be to make a reasonable profit.
I think my analogy fits fine with the prices. Some people simply don't have the extra money to drop $500-800, but could drop $149 (Nook Color)-$300 (mid to high end range Android based tablet). Just like some people can afford to drop $19,000 on a Toyota, but not $45,000 on a BMW.
I have not seen anything that makes the iPad better than the higher end Android tablets aside from better applications (and even then, the higher end ones are beginning to get comparable apps). The Android tablets are faster with better components inside.
