This guide is to review the latest tablet pcs and compare various tablet computers.
A tablet personal computer (tablet PC) is a portable personal computer equipped with a touch screen as a primary input device. Comparing laptops, tablet personal computers may not be equipped with a keyboard, in which case they use a virtual onscreen substitute. All tablet personal computers have a wireless adapter for Internet and local network connection. The term was made popular as a concept presented by Microsoft in 2001, yet the Tablet computer market was invigorated by Apple through the introduction of the iPad device in 2010. Apple’s iPad, are readying their own devices for what is already proving to be a rapidly growing marketplace. According to Apple, the company shipped "4.19 million iPads during the quarter." During the Q3 earnings call, in the first full quarter in which the iPad was available, that number stood at just over 3 million.
The iPad only weighs 1.5lbs, gives you a display of 9.56 in (24.3 cm) × 7.47 in (19.0 cm) and is only 0.5 inches thick. The battery Life of iPad is up to 10 hours. These dimensions couldn't be any handier and puts the iPad in a class of its own. iPad use of the iPhone OS and its clever data-entry scheme - virtual keyboard, multitouch gestures and all - turns the iPad into an immeasurably more usable device than any Windows-based tablet PC we've seen. In general, the iPad it's not a Netbook killer, but it will take away revenues from that market.
Meanwhile, Dell Streak tablet device, perhaps is basically just a smartphone. Its five-inch touchscreen puts it somewhere in between an iPhone (screen size: 3.5 inches) and an iPad (9.7 inches). The Streak’s operating system is limited. Like many current and future iPad competitors, it uses Google’s Android OS. In this case, however, the Streak is using an older version of Android, version 1.6. The latest version of Android is Android 2.2 (also known as “Froyo”), so Streak gets a late pass.
Then, Samsung is readying its new tablet, the Galaxy. It is a true tablet, with a touchscreen that measures 7 inches diagonally. When it is released in late October or early November, it too will be sold through mobile carriers — all four big ones (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon), in fact. The Galaxy will run on Android version 2.2.
Many of the apps available in the Android Market, when scaled to fit on the Galaxy’s comparatively gargantuan 7-inch display, are not going to look all that pretty, if they look like anything at all.There is another Android upgrade in the works (Android 3.0, a.k.a. “Gingerbread”), which may play more nicely with tablets like the Galaxy.
HP is coming a webOS-based tablet unofficially dubbed the PalmPad for release early next year. Things get very muddled, however, when the talk turns to HP's Android tablet and Windows tablet PC plans.
For starters, design is less a factor for tablets than in the other categories. A tablet is supposed to be a mostly featureless panel of glass: that is the whole point. The hardware will also be fairly standardized (display, cameras, microphone, chipset). The only question will be who has the most and best apps.And if that is the key (and it is), then consumers are not actually the people that tablet makers should be concerned about right now — it is the app developers. Win them over, and the shoppers will follow.
