A tablet computer, or simply tablet, is a entire mobile computer, larger than a mobile phone or particular artificial intelligence assistant, integrated into a flat touch screen and primarily operated by touching the screen. It often uses an onscreen virtual keyboard, a passive stylus pen, or a digital pen, rather than a physical keyboard.Not everyone knows the operating system of these tablets is one of the factors to look into before spending their dough. The Android operating system developed by Google Inc. has been making waves due to its immense community of software developers writing applications that expands the functionality of certain devices.
Asus Eee Pad Transformer
Google has been hard at work designing and polishing the tablet version of Android known as Honeycomb, which saw the light last February when Motorola launched the Xoom. Since then a good number of Honeycomb-powered devices have arrived to the market, among the most popular you have Samsung Galaxy tablets and, of course, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. It comes with a detachable keyboard that easily makes it look like a netbook. The screen features a very sharp 1280 x 800 resolution, and Asus has added a high-quality IPS display which improves one’s vision when viewing the screen in angles. The Transformer is powered by Nvidia Tegra processors, and is also running with the Android 3.0 operating system. It has a 5 MP camera at the back with LED flash and a 1.2 MP camera on the front.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a marvel of engineering, given its size. Holding one in your hand, you might mistake it for a truncated version of a Samsung LED HDTV, which are also market leaders. There’s a slight edge around the screen that is not touch enabled, a silver edge, and an all-white back.
Toshiba recently released its own version of an Android 3.0 tablet. Its resolution and software, commonly incorporated in Toshiba television sets, is also a key feature of the tablet. It greatly improves the image quality and further enhances the standard definition video to look like high resolution. This makes the tablet possess a very good screen. To further enhance its screen features, the tablet’s screen brightness adjusts accordingly depending on the lighting of the environment. Moreover, the tablet has an added feature of a replaceable battery.
The Motorola Xoom is a handsomely built tablet, though at a glance, you’ll think you’ve seen this before. If you’re holding the tablet in that orientation, you’ll find the front facing camera sitting dead-center between the Motorola and Verizon logos along the top of the glass display. Around the back of the device, Motorola has weirdly chosen to place the power / sleep button next to the camera lens and flash — and those components are flanked by stereo speakers.
The Flyer has an attractive design and measures 7.7 inches by 4.8 inches and is half an inch thick. That’s comparable to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch, which is, to date, the only other 7-inch tablet from a mobile manufacturer, and measures 7.5 by 4.7 by 0.47 inches.Although the Flyer has approximately the same thickness and dimensions as the Galaxy Tab, I found this tablet more comfortable to hold. That’s because the edges are curved and gently taper, as compared with the Galaxy Tab’s dated-looking, boxy design.
