Tablets are fast gaining popularity as a secondary device of choice for anyone
looking for the power of a laptop - sans its complexity. Tablets could well have a collective noun of their
own - a "confusion". Here is the stark reality: the iPad is king. But why?
When it comes to storage capacity, for most people 8 GB to 16 GB is
quite enough. If you want to keep a lot of videos and movies on your
tablet, you need larger storage. Or something that accepts external
storage media like microSD cards.
As of now there are close to 90,000 tablet-specific applications for the
iPad. While there is no official figure from Google about Android OS
apps, guesstimates put the figure at some 3,500 apps (well, they're
primarily phone apps that also run comfortably on tablets).
The researchers at Datawind, the makers of the low-cost tablet Aakash, take a small step for their company, a giant leap for computing devices. Their Ubislate, or Aakash, tablet comes at a rock-bottom price.
The 5 MP camera captured decent images. On a positive note, Samsung has added a 1.4 GHz processor that makes it operate quickly. The new Omnia W may be a better device. Also reviews of Nokia 701, Samsung Omnia W and HTC Radar.
