Ok, now this is one market heating up with companies entering the markets almost every month.
Tablets market is becoming so over populated yet so popular..But the big decision is which ones the best tablet? We are going to write down the top 5 here. Although some of them won’t be available yet in your country but they would launch very soon.
Read on below and let us know which one you like best! 2011 is looking to be the year when some excellent Tablet offerings will be available for all to enjoy.
1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch
Unlike its seven-inch predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will run the true Honeycomb OS with no overlaying customization or TouchWiz UI. This particular tablet will feature a 10.1-inch TFT display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor. Furthermore, it will come in 16GB and 32GB varieties, and feature a front-facing two-megapixel camera and eight-megapixel rear.Unfortunately, it’s looking like this tablet won’t have HDMI – which is definitely not a good thing.
All the usual connectivity stuff is there, like b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. With Nividia Tegra 2 Dual Core under the hood, this tablet should have no problems supporting 1080p video playback at 30 frames per second and, thanks to its massive battery, will easily achieve 10 hours of heavy usage. Additional goodies on board include a gyroscope, accelerometer, digital compass, and proximity sensor. Finally, the 10.1 Tab will measure .4-inches thick and weighs just 599 grams.
Samsung claims it will launch in Europe in June, coming to Vodafone first. Samsung did not say when it will be available in the United States, or which carriers will support it. Samsung has also also finally offered us details into pricing, with the 16GB Wifi-only 10.1 Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab going for $499. Being that it’s a full-fledged Google Experience device with no custom skin means you can anticipate much faster updates than what Samsung has become (in)famous for. You can expect a full review once we get our hands on the device.
2. Motorola Xoom
This 10.1-inch Android 3.0, or Honeycomb, tablet sports an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, uses a laptop-like 1280 x 800 resolution, and has two cameras: a 2-megapixel sensor in the front for video chat over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G and a 5-megapixel rear camera for stills and 720p video recording. It will initially work on Verizon’s 3G network but will be upgradeable to 4G / LTE soon after launch. The Xoom is expected to be available in the first quarter, although no pricing has been announced. Most analysts and tech bloggers are saying this is the one to watch, and we are inclined to agree with them. Finally a manufacturer has realized that consumers want a quality, performance tablet with a high resolution screen, and a relatively thin bezel. We will keep you posted and offer you a hands-on as soon as we can.
3. Asus Eee Pad Transformer
The 10.1-inch Android 3.0 tablet runs for 8 hours and can mate with a keyboard dock, providing a laptop-style configuration while boosting battery life up to 16 hours. The slate runs on the dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and features two cameras. It will sell for $399 to $699 and be available in April. While different than the Slider, it offers a significantly better keyboard to use, but also a bigger footprint, so its QWERTY magic comes at a price. The 10.1-inch tablet will both be fully functional as a keyboard free device, and be even further functional once it’s docked into the external keyboard.
We’d love to hear your thoughts – as always.
