Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Beats Apple iPad 4 To Lead The Tablet War Movie, Microsoft Surface Pro, Kindle Fire Add Spunk As Supporting Cast

Turning the clock back by few hands, I remember being left with the Apple iPad  as a feasible choice for a sleek sexy tablet to garb. Coming back to the present– I am almost flooded with choices as diverse as the colors on earth. Samsung is oozing glamour with its Galaxy Note 8.0 while Microsoft Surface Pro has hit bull’s eye in the niche laptop consumer market. Before I forget, the Google Nexus 10 has become my next-best friend set to match shoulders with my BFF Samsung Galaxy.

  • Bite into the Apple Ipad 4- With rich legacy thronging its name, the iPad 4 boasts of rippling resolution that matches head with an uber cool  iOS interface.  While I find the iPad 4 too heavy to slip into my handbag, the functionality woos me back into a date with this Apple offering.
  • My prayers for a tab fitting into my handbag meet the right match with the Google Nexus 7. The Jelly Bean cooks up a taste that is yummy for Android fans. With a pocket-able price, the tablet is light both ways.  Just that, the app story could be worked upon to a fair bit on the Nexus.
  • Shopping for a compact tablet that comes between the Apple iPad 4 and the Google Nexus, I got hands on the Kindle Fire HD.  With high definition at the forefront on its 8.9-inch screen, the Amazon baby is a delight for flicking between Reader books or catching up a latest movie.
  • Come over all average tablets into a world that is called Galaxy. Samsung has played its cards too right and the Galaxy Note 8 barely disappoints. The seductive screen, the swipe-worthy S-stylus, the Airview-phew– variety indeed is the spice of life with the Note 8.
  • Microsoft was king and perhaps is yet to lose the battle of the latest to giants such as Samsung! With the Surface Pro, I was happy that Microsoft is back on war field. Despite hiccups with the bank breaking tag, the laptop grabbed buyers from the high-end consumer markets. With Windows 8 and its promise to take you across multitasking in a jiffy, the Surface is worth a buy if you rarely care for price tags.

For skeptics—here is a blow—these are no cons or inspired from Apple avatars. Each of the tab outing from the giants are fed with specs that kill and looks that amaze.
