Apple iPad 5 Vs Google Nexus 10 Vs Microsoft Surface Pro – The Premiere Tablet Face off

Apple has been facing some pretty stiff competition in tablet market recently. The Google Nexus 10 has been well received and the Microsoft Surface Pro puts a stamp of intention for the tech giant’s foray into the tablet market. But Apple is gearing up to release the iPad 5 this September and will directly pit it against this tough competition.

Going the way of the iPad Mini, the iPad 5 will be slimmer and lighter while not compromising on size or performance. The Surface Pro feels and looks great, quite sturdy and the dark titanium finish is as good as if not better than the iPad’s trademark look. The Nexus looks great but doesn’t feel as up market at the other two. The iPad 5 will ship with a retina screen, meaning great visuals guaranteed. The Surface Pro has 10.6in screen that supports 1920×1080 resolution and 229ppi which is quite impressive, but the Nexus 10 boasts a spectacular 2560×1600 resolution with 299ppi – possibly beating the retina as well!

The major difference though is the operating system – the iPad 5 will be shipped with the latest iOS 7; the Nexus 10 uses Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and the Surface Pro uses Windows 8.1 – and this might just be the biggest deal maker or breaker for most people looking to buy a new tablet.… Read the rest

Google Goofs Up Its Nexus 10 Gimmick—Too Much To Give, Too Less To See

Emotions do work up excitement. Marketing through mass media indeed appeals to user emotions to excite them to grab a product. This is perhaps the bottom-line that Google believes with its vehement Nexus 10 advertisement campaign. However, all said and done, does the advert work up reasons why it could be better than Samsung Galaxy series and Apple’s iPads? The answer lies in- No!

Though we see a lot of touching, caressing and the like on the Nexus screen, would a newbie gauge the real meaning? How could you understand that Google focuses on the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in the tablet?

The reference to Google play Books, Google+ and Magazine too remains undermined. We saw the hangouts, the video conference possibilities on the Nexus via the advert. Nevertheless, how could Google forget to highlight that the tablet supports 10 video feeds at once! How would we know until told?

The photo we see on the advert is of Alvin but do users understand that the makers point to its high-resolution spec? No!

The advertisement works up our emotion but does not excite us to go grab the Nexus 10. A marketing gimmick that has gone slightly wrong, we believe. Get going Google, what’s wrong?… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Vs Google Nexus 10: The S-Pen Tablet Wonder Really Brings In Novelty

Samsung recently showcased its newest addition to its tablet lineup – the Galaxy Note 8.0. And while we feel that this one is the ideal competitor to the iPad Mini, we decided to pit it against the Google Nexus 10 to see if you could consider this new tab as an alternative to Google’s 10-inch offering. Both these tablets run on Android 4.2, so there’s not much difference there. And here’s what else we found:

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0: This tablet comes with an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. It is powered by a quad-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 5250 processor and has 2 GB of RAM, letting you handle any app with ease. A 1.3 MP front-facing camera lets you make video calls conveniently, while the 5 MP rear camera lets you click photos too. There’s 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded using microSD cards. And of course, there’s the S Pen which lets you take down notes easily on this little tablet.

Google Nexus 10: The Nexus 10 has a gorgeous 10-inch display with a 2560X1600 pixel resolution, which is far higher than that of the Galaxy Note 8.0. But yes, in terms of power, its dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM don’t quite compare with the 8-inch Samsung offering. Like the Note 8.0, the Nexus 10 also has a 5 MP camera in the back but a higher resolution 1.9 MP one in the front.… Read the rest

Microsoft Surface Pro Vs Goole Nexus 10 Vs Apple iPad: A Rare Windows 8 Assortment Leaves Tablet World Agape

If you’re wondering why Microsoft hasn’t been in the news for Windows 8 since the OS launched a few months ago, well, don’t worry, it’s all going pretty well for the company. All those months of hype and aggressive marketing appear to have paid off for Microsoft, with Windows 8 adoption rates growing at a steady rate.

To start with, the best thing about Windows 8 is the form factor of the latest machines. If you’re willing to spend a little extra and you care a lot about performance, it’s not hard to see why a Windows 8 based laptop-tablet hybrid device makes most sense for you over an iPad 4 or another Android-based tablet. In terms of tech specs, nothing can come close to what these hybrid models can offer – and of course, the greatest advantage is that you can use Microsoft Office on your portable Windows 8 device.

Initially, Microsoft tried to catch everyone’s attention with the Surface tablet running Windows RT. And while it’s priced comfortably in the same range as its competitors, it didn’t quite give the complete Windows experience. It’s still more of a tablet than anything else and you can just as easily pick up a  Google Nexus 10 or iPad 4 instead.

Shortly thereafter, Microsoft announced the Surface Pro running the full fledged Windows 8 OS and blew our minds! It’s more portable than an Ultrabook, but the tinier form factor doesn’t seem to affect its performance at all. However, given its steep price of $999 for the 128 GB SSD model and then another $130 for the Type Cover, it still didn’t seem to make it on most buyers’ preferred list of gadgets.

A more convenient alternative is the wide range of tablet-laptop hybrids in the market made by Microsoft’s hardware partners. They let you enjoy the complete Windows 8 experience even when on the go. And the keyboard’s already there – you don’t need to make an additional purchase.

Given the way things are going, we can expect to see a lot more new tablets and hybrid devices coming out in 2013, all running on Windows 8. It’s familiar, so you don’t need to ramp up your knowledge on yet another OS to operate a Windows 8 based device, and you know it works well. But as more Windows 8 based portable devices enter the market, can we expect Android and iOS to become more versatile to take on Microsoft’s silent success?… Read the rest

Google Nexus 10 Vs Asus MeMo Pad Vs Apple iPad 5: Would Asus Take Away Nexus Thunder?

We’ve maintained all along that 2013 is expected to be the year of the 10-inch tablet. If 2012 saw many consumers investing in the 7-inch tablet, this is the year when they take a leap forward and go bigger with their tabs. We’ve already got the iPad and the Google Nexus 10 reigning this market, but this year, expect a lot more competition. With the iPad 4 not having made as big a mark, we’re expecting Apple to do something spectacular on the iPad 5, while we’ve already got Asus bringing out its own 10-inch tablet, the MeMo Pad 10.

Asus MeMo Pad 10: This time, we’re starting with the tech specs, just because they are truly remarkable. According to the leaked information, the MeMo Pad 10 is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and 1 GB RAM. It has a 5 MP rear camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The MeMo Pad 10 comes with 16 GB of internal storage, but there’s also a microSD card slot, so you can expand the memory.

Apple iPad 5: But of course, this one’s going to be thinner and faster, but we’re hearing that the iPad 5 could also be a tad bit smaller than its predecessors. Don’t get disheartened just yet – the screen size is expected to remain the same, but the edges are getting trimmed down as much as possible. The iPad 5 is expected to have LTE connectivity, and in all likelihood, an IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) screen which would use up to 90 percent less power. Not only would that make for much better power efficiency, but you can also expect a better touch response.  While we don’t know much about the tech specs of the iPad 5, there are rumors that it could have a thinner and lighter battery too.

Google Nexus 10: Google’s flagship 10-inch tablet features a 10.05 inch display with a resolution of 2560X1600 pixels. Powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 processor and 2 GB of RAM, it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It’s also got a 5 MP rear camera with an LED flash, but a slightly better 1.9 MP front-facing camera. The Nexus 10 comes with 16 GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD card slot.… Read the rest
