Reviews of a few Tablet PCs Apple iPad The bulk of its surface is taken up by a 9.7-inch, 1024 x 768, capacitive, multitouch LED-backlit display surrounded by a glossy black bezel that some will say is too wide but, in practice, is an important design consideration that prevents the touchscreen from being inadvertently activated when handled. The applications of the iPad are plenty and the consumers are assured of fast browsing speed by Steve Jobs himself. But it doesn’t stand on his words. The iPad does not support flash and maybe it never will. But the mails, youtube videos and iBooks perform really well on the iPads.
Samsung Galaxy Tabs Review: Samsung's done a commendable job distinguishing the Tab from the others with its contrasting front and back surfaces. The back of the rounded-off device is coated in white shiny plastic while the front consists of a familiar flush black bezel and glass screen. It does have a Corning Gorilla Glass screen -- but it does feel incredibly durable, and one shouldn’t worry too much when it mistakenly falls off the couch. Software: TouchWiz and Android.
Motorola Xoom Review: The Xoom is a handsomely built tablet, though at a glance, you'll think you've seen this before. The guts of the Xoom are more than competitive -- and performance on the device was really quite brisk. Besides that Tegra 2 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, the device is equipped with WiFi 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Verizon's EV-DO Rev. A, along with GPS, a light sensor, and an accelerometer. It runs on the software of android- honeycomb, version 3.0.
