There can be no doubt that the Google Nexus 10.2 is looking like an iPad 5 killer tablet. The Google Nexus 10.2 release date is nearing and so is the Apple iPad 5 release date. Let us compare both to decide which one is worth the wait.
First things first, both of these 10 inch tablets will be running brand new operating systems; the Google Nexus 10.2 will use Android 4.4 KitKat and the Apple iPad 5 will run iOS 7. A major hurdle for the iPad 5 is the Nexus 10’s expandable memory, something no iPad has had till date. Both the Google Nexus 10.2 and the iPad 5 are expected to have LTE capabilities. It is quite possible that Apple will boost the iPad 5’s speed with the A7 processor seen in the iPhone 5s.
In conclusion, both of these devices are a cut above the rest. The old Nexus 10 had an amazing screen that was 10.1 inches and had a resolution of 2560 by 1600pi – it is quite clear that the new Nexus 10.2 will use the same screen if not better, giving it a good chance to be an iPad 5 killer. The iPad 5, like all Apple products, is a near perfect combination of style and hardware and software in perfect balance for a smooth experience. … Read the rest
Apple seems not-too-snug in its seat with Samsung and BlackBerry on the prowl. This time, we have reason to believes that iPhone 6 and iPad 5 could see a slew of the latest features that could give all Apple counterparts a run for money.
Apple could take on high-laced technology in the form of 1080 p HD display coupled with laser-based perception tech like it never used before. The latter could double as a desktop keyboard too! A snippet from Patently Apple reveals that the next installments of the Apple outings could come with a control panel 115 that could run on sensory light waves. It says, “Remember, this could also apply to Apple’s iPhone as well which would indicate that there would be some kind of associated smart cover or built-in stand so that the projected keyboard could function properly onto a surface.”
However, for now we could only keep fingers crossed till these features are actually seen on the Apple models in the future.
Even before the new iPad 5 comes out to the market, the competition’s already heating up. CES 2013 came and went by without Samsung showcasing any new tablets, but we’re hearing a lot about a new Galaxy Tab 3 which could soon be unveiled by the Korean company. But will it manage to make a mark this year against its competitors the Microsoft Surface Pro and the upcoming iPad 5?
Display: For starters, the Galaxy Tab 3 would be in a different league with its 7-inch screen against the Surface Pro’s and iPad 5’s 10-inch screens. It would make a suitable alternative for consumers who want portability as well as performance. The Galaxy Tab 3 is expected to have a resolution of 1920X1080 pixels, which is definitely comparable with the Surface Pro’s 208 ppi display and the iPad’s Retina Display.
Tech specs: While we’re still not sure of the processor within the Galaxy Tab 3, we’re expecting it to have at least 2 GB of RAM. Now, the iPad 4 had just 1 GB of RAM, but we’re expecting Apple to upgrade that to 2 GB in the iPad 5. The Surface Pro is the real powerhouse as of now with its dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and 4 GB of RAM. But then again, it’s meant for heavy-duty operations on the go.
Camera: We’re hearing that the Galaxy Tab 3 could have a 5 MP rear camera, which is better than the Surface Pro’s HD front-facing camera. The iPad 4 has a 5 MP camera, which means we can expect the iPad 5 to have something higher – perhaps an 8 MP camera? If this happens, then the iPad 5 definitely gets the lead in this category.… Read the rest
