    Comparison chart by Droid Life

    DroidLife has posted a comparison chart between the iPad 2 and the Honeycomb competition tablet devices in the Motorola Xoom, the LG G-Slate, and the Samsung Galaxy 10.1.

    The iPad 2 seems to be hardware equivalent to the latest Honeycomb tablets. This is not entirely surprising, considering that similar hardware with dual-core Cortex processors have been available for half a year since November of last year in the Viewsonic gTablet and Advent Vega. This removes the hardware advantage Honeycomb tablets had over Apple's products, but the key battle is still software.

    Append: Xoom 4G LTE upgrade is not yet available.

    So in a technical sense the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1... is actually the best device?

    I'm not sure why these comparisons are done with real world devices and vaporware.

    I guess there was a great need to fill space with "n/a"s

    Ok, so I am NOT saying it is better than the iPad, or the Xoom, or the non-existant 10.1 Galaxy, but look at these specs. Other than Honeycomb, which I would expect to see a ROM for soon from the community, and a weaker display, the ViewSonic G-Tab stands right next to all of these devices.

    Oh yeah, it also costs between $379-$399. You can also find refurbs that were returned only because the original UI was so bad that were barely used for $279.

    How come you have the Xoom as non-3D device but it's tauted as 3D device. Still just in the next gen of these tablets. I am sure it will get better. Tera2 needs some work though. 5x Tera and quad-12 core looks good on the screen but will it outperform the current or will it be more of the same? Suppose to do true 3D HD. Just have to see. Apple iPad2 just add some missing features still around the same.

    the Cius is the only obvious choice as a tablet for business. From enterprise management to security, no matter what 3rd party apps and add-ons are spewed forth as afterthoughts to attempt to line up the iPad (Playbook, Touch, etc) with enterprise, the Cius is the clear answer.

    I have not converted to Apple yet, you would think as a design student I would have by now. Still, I am looking at a droid tablet for myself and perhaps the Ipad2 for my spouse, why, because Ipad2 requires less thought to operate and is more intuitive. I can handle the process of implementing all the apps in the droid, some people are only made for the ease of Apple OS..
