Nowdays, which is the most popular topic between Young? Obviously the Apple iPad VS Google’s Android WiFi Tablet is the hottest topic. As the Apple iPad rising in sales and popularity everyday, other manufacturers want a slice of that proverbial pie, so to speak. And topping the list of iPad killer – wannabes are Google’s Android WiFi Tablet, a project that is on its way to seeing store shelves in the near future and other tablet computers using Google’s open-source Android platform.
So how do Android WiFi Tablet stack up against the Apple iPad? Let’s go through the pros and cons of the current Apple of Steve Jobs’ eye, and match the iPad up against those who wish to dethrone it.
The pros of the Apple iPad
A stunning graphics interface, crisp video and clear visuals are all part of the iPad’s package. Add to that smooth interaction between yourself and the iPad, superb touch screen sensitivity, iPad Bluetooth, WiFi and 3G connectivity, an amazing 10-hour battery life and the simple and easy-to-use OS platform that almost everyone has come to love. A plethora of exciting games and hundreds of different applications add to the coolness factor and beauty of the Apple iPad. All the apps (and more!) that made the iPhone popular now have their iPad counterparts, guaranteeing users hours and hours of multimedia bliss and entertainment.
The pros of Android WiFi Tablet
The main attraction of these rival Android WiFi Tablet is the fact that the Android operating system is open source. This means that coding for programs, applications and the like is available for people to use and improve on. Consequently, programmers will have a field day creating different applications, resulting in probably even more games and apps in the future for Android Tablets. Most of these tablets are also cheaper than the iPad. 7 inch Touchscreen Google Android WiFi Tablet, for instance, is a steal at only $126.99. It supports 32GB TF/Micro SD card expand, as well as WiFi connectivity. Compliant with wireless 802.11b/g standard, Connect to network by wired or wireless method, Support 3G mobile network, Built-in 1.3 Mega pixels webcam, Dual speakers stereo audio export with microphone, Install and uninstall software freely, Built-in Li-ion polymer battery, Support multi-languages. Another advantage of these tablets is that some of them feature cameras and Flash support, which the iPad does not have.
The Cons of the Apple iPad
It’s been said before and we’ll say it again: the lack of a camera and USB ports have turned off some potential buyers of the Apple iPad. Multitasking, which Mac lovers have enjoyed and loved in iMacs and Macbooks, is nonexistent in the iPad as well. There is, to date, no way to use two or more applications at the same time. It also does not support Flash with Safari (its web browser), as of the moment, making YouTube, Hulu and CBS fans very disappointed.
The cons of Android Tablets
Because of certain restrictions of the Android OS, tablets using this platform can only have a screen size of 7 inches at the most. This means that the iPad will stilling be much larger than any Android Tablet out in the market, even in the future, unless Google lifts or changes these restrictions. Also, Android WiFi Tablets haven’t surpassed the iPad when it comes to battery life. This alone is a huge factor to consider.
So, who emerges victorious in the battle between the Androids and Apple? I think Android WiFi Tablet will rule the future through the fact still remains to be seen, but I believe Android WiFi Tablet will be the last winner.
