The New iPad Vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

I have had a Samsung Galaxy Tab for a while now as well as my iPad.

Now if you had never used an iPad and picked up a Samsung Tablet you maybe quiet pleased with it.

You can get on the internet with it , configure it for your Google account , Facebook , install apps etc.

The screen is quiet clear and bright , the camera is fair and it works quiet well but remember what I said " if you had never picked up an iPad". 

Now there are people that will never buy an Apple product for a myriad of reasons so they will buy anything else and very soon with Windows 8 there will be a plethora of tablets on the market so choice will never be greater, however , Apple have set the bar high and most if not all competitors currently do not reach that bar and in some cases come anywhere near it and that is why the iPad is the dominant force in tablets.

I had high hopes for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10 that it would come somewhere near the iPad2 at least ( let alone the new ipad ) as this was the company that gives us great televisions and some great phones ( Samsung Galaxy S2) .

Maybe the issue lies with Google and its operating system and when Ice Cream Sandwich appears maybe it will improve but I doubt it , its just not that good , its a bit clunky , a bit slow , but then I have been spoilt by having an iPad , however if I had never had an iPad , I would probably think this is a good device.

It's The New iPad Review

On friday morning I joined the queue for the new iPad.
I have owned both the iPad and the iPad2 and have seen the evolution of what Apple has achieved, develop over the last 2 years to now the "new iPad".
We need to remember that the tablet is not an original device , with Microsoft releasing tablet software for devices in 2001 but Apple have been responsible for putting into the mainstream of consumer products.
Apple's new iPad is the standard on which all the other tablets will be compared to.
Apple have taken a great device , added some tweaks and a high retina screen and made it even better.
Are their radical changes , no , but there was no need to as the iPad2 was already a great device and the leader in tablets in the market place.
They have just made it even better.
The screen, which is high retina ( more pixels than on a high def televison) is magnificent to look at.
Great color , great definition.
It is the best display I have seen , bright , clear and puts others to shame and sets the benchmark for displays.
After spending some time with the new ipad , you will not look at a computer screen the same way.
The high retina screen means the apps which take advantage of this will take up more hard drive space so the 32GB iPad is probably the sweet spot for a trade off between space and price.
Effective use of the cloud is imperative to the iPad as you don't need to have everything on the iPad but you do need access.
So how does it compare to other tablets on the market?
I also have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and while it a reasonable device ( the subject of another post to come )  the new iPad is far and way a much better device ( sorry Android users).
The new iPad is quicker than the iPad 2 , the graphics speed has improved so gaming is even better than before and is an ideal gaming device, Sony Playstation Vita potential buyers , take note.
The iPad has always been about the apps and after upgrading you will find many apps need to be updated as they take advantage of the high retina screen.
Photos are magnificent on the new iPad and with the new iPhoto app , editing photos on the iPad can be done with ease.
I have always considered the iPad to be primarily a content consumption device and a limited content creation device.
This is starting to evolve now with increased content creation , not quiet there yet with office documents on the word processing front but with apps such as:
  • Garageband - audio
  • iMovie - movie editing
  • iPhoto - photo management and editing
it is quickly changing.
Conclusion
The new iPad is the tablet that all other tablets will be judged by which is great for competition and great for innovation.
