After CES 2014, It’s Lenovo ThinkPad 8 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.2 vs iPad Air Vs Microsoft Surface Pro 2

ipad air vs google nexus 10 vs microsot surface tab vs lenovo thinkpad 8There is a tablet fever in the air and it’s only beginning to heat up. As the winter chill brazens, lets wind up with a comparison tale among the three giants we’re waiting to see–Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.2, Apple iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 2.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.2
With the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.2 features, we expect multitasking gain an all-new height. This one is fighting against Google Nexus 10 2. With superb specs such as the below, it could indeed set a new benchmark in the tab-infested world of Android:

  • 10.1” touch screen
  • 2560 × 1600 pixel resolution
  • Octa-core 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos 5420 processor
  • 8MP back shutter
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB internal memory
  • Not to forget – Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Apple iPad Air
Apple looks to do so much more this season with its massive iPad Air, which is competition against Google Nexus 10. This is a fifth-generation iPad and has got a renovation like never before. In terms of GPU and CPU power, Apple tales the cake away—again. With an A7 chip, what else was expected? The Apple iPad Air features could offer 8 times faster performance against its predecessor. Of note are more seductive features that include:

  • 9.7 inches display
  • 2048 x 1536 pixels
  • 5MP rear shutter
  • Dual core, 1400 MHz, Cyclone processor
  • 16 GB internal storage
  • Not to forget-  iOS 7

Microsoft Surface Pro 2
A brave step from Microsoft, the Surface Pro 2 has oodles of good looks and portability. However, we fear if it can live up against the Android kids from the Korean and Cupertino giants. Here is a sneak peek into what the Surface Pro 2 features we’d like:

  • Windows RT 8.1
  • 10.6 inches screen
  • 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • 5 MP rear shutter
  • Quad core, 1700 MHz, ARM Cortex-A15
  • 32 GB internal memory
  • Not to Forget- Windows RT 8.1

Interestingly, all of these will have to face some competition from the Lenovo ThinkPad 8, which was revealed at CES 2014. Using the Windows 8 operating system, this is a convertible tablet with a full 1080p display. When you need a bigger display, one can simply attach it to a bigger screen using a mini HDMI port and use it as a PC. It also has a USB port. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 also comes with 4G LTE/3G, which many previous tablets don’t offer.

Yes, like we said, the war has only begun to hear up. … Read the rest
