Which Tablet to Buy: Tablet vs iPad comparison
Apple has conquered the world with its iPad in such a way that competitors scramble to imitate it but came up short until about just recently. After burning many midnight oils, other companies have finally created their own versions of smart phones and android tablets that they hope would dethrone the ubiquitous iPad.
To give credit to all who made such exceeding effort to contend with one of Steve Jobs’ ultimate legacy, some impressive tablets out there can really give iPad a run for its own money. As a response, Apple has to protect its reputation by moving ahead the pack with its newer and sleeker version of the first edition iPads. Let’s do some tablet comparisons right here, right now to see if there is something that will really outmatch the supremacy of Apple’s piece de resistance.
Tablet vs. iPad Comparison
The Xoom and the Galaxy Tab both have the popular Android operating system, trying to overthrow iPad’s iOS on its throne. Functionality remains the strongest feature of the Android, allowing users to customise to their heart’s content. But the iOS 4 is not your run-off-the-mill software, making even beginners feel like pros with its user-friendly interface. When it comes to processors, both OS are dead even on the race. All new generation tablets these days have dual core processors that can perform up to 1 GHz except for the TouchPad which performs up to 1.2 GHz. Same goes for the storage area. Most devices have 16 Gb and 32 Gb options. Only the Ipad 2 has a 64 Gb option, though. If you are going to make an iPad comparison and want to find out its Achilles’ heel, then that would be the RAM capacity it comes with. High-powered counterparts run with at least 1 Gb compared with a measly 256 Mb of the iPad. Hopefully, the newer version would have a RAM boost.
Furthermore, before iPad 2 came out, there was no camera with the device unlike other smartphones and android tablets. But if you want a compact and lightweight gadget, iPad 2 is your top option at 1.3 lbs. Blackberry Playbook only packs on .88 lbs, though. Still, it would be mighty lucky for anyone who will win an iPad, right? Especially if you don’t have AUD $389-539 to shell out. But if you’re going to burn some serious cash, go for the iPad 2, which is still the market champ when it comes to highly polished design, easy-to-use interface, and great support.
