Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Is The Fastest Tablets Available In The MarketMicrosoft Surface Pro 3 Outcast 9 Tablets In Terms Of Speed

According to the reports, the tablet has successfully left behind some of the best-selling tablets  available in the United Kingdom,after being run on cross-platform processor of the Geekbench,  including Apple iPad mini 3, Apple iPad Air 32 GB (Wi-Fi) and Apple iPad Air 2.

The tablet also left behind Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 2014, Google Nexus 9, Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, Tesco Hudl 2 and Asus MEMO Pad 7 ME572C. Thus, it rightly suits the claim that it used during the marketing campaigns, “the tablet that can replace your laptop”.

Microsoft Offers Better Speed Than Apple And Samsung

 The tablets’ performance are ranked depending on the scores they receive. The higher the speed, the better is the score and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 had scored huge with 5069 points. Therefore, anyone who wants to download software, app or web pages faster can surely rely on this tablet than the other ones available in the market.

ipad Air 2, which is ranked second with 4046 points is also a decent choice followed by Nexus 9 with 3537 points. Though iPad Air 2 was slotted on the second position, iPad mini 3, which has gained immense success in the market was ranked in the tenth position, making many wonder about its speed.

Yet, most of the Apple devices do not offer great speed and Microsoft’s offering three times better speed than Apple is not at all a surprise. While Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is three times better in terms of speed, it might not feature all other necessary features to make the device a best-seller.

With iPad Mini 2 & iPad 5 Release Set In Line, Will Apple Regain Its Plunging Market Share and Popularity?

Apple is expected to roll out its forthcoming iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C anytime after September 20th followed by the launch of iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 somewhere in mid-November this year. 

Interestingly, certain analysts believe that Apple’s hope to gain its plunging market shares in the tab market could be pinned down to the release of iPad Mini 2 and the iPad 5.

Apple’s earlier shipment for tabs went down from 229.3 million to 227.4 million units, which is speculated to be the firm’s move to build anticipation among consumers for its upcoming iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. However, the decision to increase the sales of tabs in the Q4 this year has rather affected the company’s market share.    

Nevertheless, as per some reports, Apple’s shipment of tabs has increased by 60 percent since 2012, when it first launched the iPad.

Apple has always been a leader in the tab market, giving its rivals a tough time.

The Cupertino Calif.-based firm is expected to launch its upcoming iPad 5 with more power and expertise, packed in a slim and light body with the new iOS 7. The device thus contains the power to revamp consumer’s interest in the tab all over again.

With Retina Display and faster processing chips, the iPad Mini 2 will be a cheaper version that will come in competition with other cheaper Android devices in the market.

Microsoft Surface RT vs Apple iPad 4 Trailer : The Loss of $900 Million Can Take Microsoft To Any Extent,

For years, big firms in the tech world are aiming at one another with commercials that compare the devices. From 2006-2009, Apple ran a trailer under ‘Get a Mac’ campaign, highlighting why Mac was superior to Microsoft’s Windows PCs. In reply, Microsoft also ran anti-iPad commercials, focusing on iPad’s shortcomings.

However, following a loss of whooping $900 million, Microsoft has now rolled out a latest Surface RT vs. iPad commercial, with focus on its Surface RT’s features and low price.

Using Siri to point out things it can’t do, the ad kick starts with the Surface RT’s built-in stand, which iPad doesn’t have. It follows showing the USB port in the Surface RT, which lacks in iPad.

The ad also shows Microsoft’s device getting into the Surface Touch Cover, with Siri acting in response saying, “Oh snap, you have a real keyboard too?” However, Microsoft hasn’t pointed at the keyboard’s cost as it’s sold separately.

The commercial ends with the comparison between the devices’ cost. Siri says “This isn’t going to end well for me, is it?”, showing the price of the 32GB iPad that’s $599 compared to the 32GB Surface RT that runs at $349.

However, the ad is launched soon after Microsoft slashed the price of its Surface RT tablets by $150 owing to poor sales.

Microsoft, it seems hopes to pump up the sales of its Surface RT device with this latest ad, which clearly targets Apple’s iPad.… Read the rest

Apple iPad Mini 2 Vs Apple iPad 5: To Include or Not to Include Retina Display

Should Apple’s iPad Mini 2 comprise Retina Display or not? The decision seems to have rattled the firm. As per a latest buzz in the rumor mill, the Cupertino Calif.-based firm still has to settle on whether to include Retina Display in its upcoming next-gen 7.9-inch iPad or not.

However, if Apple plans on to implement a Retina screen, we won’t see the iPad Mini 2 hit the shelves before the end of the fourth quarter. Considering the current iPad’s low 1024 x 768 resolution, a delay to instill the Retina screen could lead to no problem.

Apparently, Apple has decided to design the iPad Mini 2 as a bezel-less device.

Yet another rumor surrounding Apple indicates towards another iPad in the making, the iPad 5.

The iPad 5 is expected to roll out with a 9.7-inch display, a Retina screen, slimmer bezel, a single LED tube (as opposed to two) with an improved battery life.

It is speculated that the production process of the iPad 5 is finished, which means we’ll see the expected specifications in the device.

Expected to be announced in September, iPad 5 might be out for shipment either at the end of this month or early next.… Read the rest

Bill Gates’ Endorsement: An Unsuccessful Attempt to Push for Microsoft Surface Tablet Against Apple iPad?

You can’t blame Bill Gates for being loyal to his previous company. But when the ex-boss of Microsoft appeared at a recent interview at CNBC and remarked that iPad users were frustrated using the tablet, we really wish he had done his background research properly.

Gates couldn’t help but try to promote Microsoft’s Surface RT and Pro tablets, except these remarks quite literally appeared to have come out of nowhere – especially given that there are quite a few aspects where the Microsoft tablets are lagging behind their competition.

Gates remarked at how revolutionary a product Windows 8 is, since it allows users the benefits of both a PC and a tablet, in the same device, particularly the convenience of the keyboard and Office. However, what he missed mentioning is that the keyboard for Surface is an additional accessory that has to be purchased separately. And that the Surface RT, while shipping with Office, doesn’t run all Windows 8 apps and lacks Outlook.

And then Gates went on to exclaim that iPad users were a frustrated lot, being unable to type conveniently on their devices and how the iPad doesn’t have Office. But, Mr. Gates, we have to ask, if iPad users were really that frustrated, how come Apple’s tablet is the bestselling device in the tablet world?

Apple iPad losing out to Microsoft and Android Tablets: Will the Galaxy Note 8.0 Spell Further Doom?

Apple may still be reigning in the world of tablets, but 2013 could be the year that changes Apple’s fortunes in this category. First it was the competition from low-cost Android tablets like the Google Nexus and the Amazon Kindle Fire, which then gave way to Microsoft’s Surface RT and Pro high-end tablets. But with the Galaxy Note 8.0 launching soon, will it spell Apple’s downfall?

Apple’s iPad and iPad Mini tablets managed to account for 48 percent of worldwide tablet sales up to Q1 of 2013, but others are playing catch-up. Microsoft managed to increase its share to 7.5 percent, in a market that’s witnessing quite the boom – sales have been up by 118 percent in comparison with Q1 of 2012. Last year, during the same period, Apple accounted for 63 percent of the tablet market – and that was even before the iPad Mini was introduced.

But over the past year, a number of new tablets have entered the fray, offering similar or even better features at more competitive prices. And Apple’s biggest threat in the form of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 is yet to hit the markets. So far, the tablet has garnered quite a bit of positive media attention, some even calling it the iPad Mini killer.

Along with Samsung, most likely, Microsoft would unveil its new Windows Blue later this year, making their tablets a lot more user friendly, possibly pulling away more of Apple’s share.

Apple iPad Seduces With Amazon As Paramour— Kamasutra Xcitra Might Just Up iPad Sales And Get You Cozy

And you thought the Apple iPad was only designed for geeks? Taking Samsung Galaxy S’s claim to have been designed for humans, Apple has taken a route most of us failed to even imagine. Sex and seduction sells in any case-Apple has believed this adage too seriously and has chosen to offer the Kama Xcitra to iPad users on iOS.

 

Forget the blushes and the “awwws”, it is time to get in bed with tech to catalyze your lovemaking! The app bases itself on augmented reality (AR) that almost makes you feel you are seeing someone teach you the positions up close and personal.  The more you shake the more to gain—no pun intended—the iPad responds to give you “all-around” views of the 3D figures on screen, as you view it from varied angles.

The Kamasutra Xcitra excites you enough to get to real time action with real augmented tech to boost your spirit. Even though you can barely customize the images to suit your(self) tastes, you can always change the skin color.

Now your spouse will barely complain about consistent tapping over the Apple iPad. We know that Apple can well turn the stakes in its favor—this time Amazon acts as its worthy partner.… Read the rest

Apple Whitewashes Plans for iPhone 5S and Retina iPad Mini Arrival—Are The Makers Fumbling With Their Creations?

Half a month back, I was all set to buy the latest Apple iPhone 5S this June but now the makers have squashed my plans. The Apple iPhone 5S has been in news for being more economical than its predecessors and I wanted to be among the first to get hands on the 5S. Apple, very simply put the blame on supply issues or production pricks to justify its delay in launching the iPhone 5S. What furthers acts as an irritant is that the Apple Retina iPad Mini too will see delay.

The prick comes with Apple unable to find the perfect color coat for its iPhone 5S! Reminds me of the trouble Apple baked during its iPhone 4 saga. Seems like the makers are too bothered about internal make over the external image.. sigh!

Moving on to why the Retina iPad Mini will see delays—Apple reveals that it has landed into hot water on the design front. The Retina in making seems more complicated than the one in imagination!

This will translate into monetary trouble for Apple but for me– this just ends my hope to get an Apple in hand sometime soon. I simply wish Apple mashed its pies quicker.… Read the rest

Apple iPad Mini 2 Vs Surface Pro: Would Windows Blue Drive Apple iOS into the Blues?

Even though Microsoft’s Windows 8 OS met with considerable success, the same doesn’t quite hold true when it comes to its foray into the tablet space with the Surface and Surface RT tablets. Both these tablets boast terrific specs and are quite powerful for their form factor, the high price had been quite a deterrent, keeping many people from ditching their iPads in favor of Microsoft’s offering.

But the upcoming update to Windows 8, Windows Blue could turn things around and make life a lot harder for Apple. To start with, Microsoft can make a huge killing in the enterprise space – given that most companies depend on Microsoft Windows OS as their official OS. Plus, no matter how terrific the iOS experience on the iPad maybe, only Microsoft Surface tablets running on Windows can offer the full fledged Microsoft Office experience – a major advantage for Microsoft.

The compatibility with workstations have already made many companies look into adopting the Microsoft Surface tablets in the workplace, and with Microsoft working pretty hard to sort out all the issues with Windows 8 in the tablet space, looks like there’s no stopping Microsoft from storming into the workplace with its Surface tablets.… Read the rest

Google Nexus 10 Vs Apple iPad Mini : Nexus More Scalable And Secure, Says Google Chairman

Google’s Big Tent Event, being organized in India– has got the Chairman Eric Schmidt thinking. His views on his competitors Amazon, Blackberry and the invincible Apple are indeed many.

When asked about his views on Blackberry and the other companies, Schmidt replied that he was a Blackberry user and liked its keyboard. He also added that Blackberry was facing trouble and Amazon was placed in a much better position than the Canadian giant.

According to the Google bigwig, Amazon has surpassed all expectations and had showcased its ability to change its marketing and distribution strategies. He also opined that Amazon’s role as an important business partner was undisputable and they had the capacity of competing with their search engine.

It was a treat to hear Google’s chairman have amicable views about its largest rival. His opinions had a complimentary tone as he praised the achievements of Apple and perceived them as creative innovators in the field. He was quite confident of Cupertino’s status and did not see it going anywhere very soon.

In his opinion, Apple made good products but he found the iPad mini too small when compared to their regular iPad. He also had expectations from the Google Nexus 10 tablet—which was more scalable and secure and boasted of many apps.
