• HP brings new tablet-PC hybrid device Envy X2 to challenge iPad

    Posted on October 22nd, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    It has been years since Apple released its first iPad. HP before brought out its Touchpad to compete with iPad. Now, a new tablet from HP has been leaked online to rival with Apple iPad, the tablet-pc hybrid Envy X2. We know that the new iPad has a large 9.7” Retina Display screen with up to 2048×1536 pixels resolution, which makes it is almost impossible for other tablets to defeat the new iPad. The visual experience to watch HD movies on new iPad is such an amazing enjoyment that no other tablets could replace. So, what HP Envy X2 could bring to us? Are there any shinning points in this new hybrid? Let’s take a look.

    HP Envy X2

    Though the Envy X2 doesn’t come with Retina display alike screen, the 1366×768 pixels screen resolution on the 11.6 inch IPS screen would also produce wonderful video and image effect for users. The touchscreen of Envy X2 also has other functions. By disconnecting the tablet and keyboard via the expansion ports, users could use Envy X2 as a seperate tablet, which means that the Envy X2 is not only suitable for individual customer needs, but also business uses.

    The HP Envy X2 adopts Intel Atom Clover Trail processor and operates on the latest Microsoft Windows 8 OS. Users could also install the old Windows 7 or XP OS. Besides, the Envy X2 is also featuring a built-in backup battery to prolong the battery use.

    Based on the unique techniques of HP, the HP Envy X2 is said to be a cooler and more practical tablet than iPad. But the problems appeared on HP’s previous tablets might worry people. And let’s just wait for the official release of Envy X2 to see the results.

  • Top 5 worthy Android tablet alternatives of Apple iPad for enterprise and individual mobility

    Posted on April 20th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Out of doubt, the Apple iPads have been top popular tablet among so many tablets in the existing electronic market. Especially since the new iPad comes out, which features the advanced Retina display to allow owners could even watch full HD Blu-ray movies on iPad with its 2048×1536 pixels HD screen resolution, the Apple iPads have attracted more eyes worldwide. The Apple iPads are certainly great buys for would-be mobile customers, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be replaced by other wonderful tablets, as every tablet would own their own advantages, either in screen display, processor, battery, camera, or price, an important element to help buyers make their decisions. In fact, there are a host of Android-based devices on store shelves right now that might just make Apple’s products far less appealing to both enterprise users and consumers.

    Apple iPadToday, I would like to share a top 5 list of Android tablets which could be worthy of alternatives of Apple iPad for enterprise and individual mobility. The following devices might not all be able to stand up against the Apple iPad. But for those who don’t want to succumb to the Apple craze, these devices might just be worthwhile alternatives of Apple iPad. Check through the following listed alternatives to find out about Android tablets that might be worthy alternatives to the iPad. You’ll find more choices to choose.

    Amazon Kindle Fire

    Amazon Kindle FireObviously, the Amazon Kindle Fire should be a choice for those who want an alternative to the new iPad. The device was claimed to be as a strong rival of Apple new iPad ever since its designing, not only in features, but in price as well. It comes with a 7-inch screen and just 8GB of storage, though, its access to Amazon services and the competitive $199 price tag makes it one worth considering.

    Acer Iconia Tab A500

    Acer Iconia Tab A500Check the specs of Acer Iconia Tab A500: Android Honeycomb, 10-inch capacitive LCD (1024 x 1280 pixel resolution), 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, 5 megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash, secondary 2 megapixel camera for video calling, up to 8 hours battery life, microSD card support up to 32GB, 1080p HD video playback, HDMI port and Dolby Mobile surround sound.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

    Galaxy Tab 10.1The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is undoubtedly the best iPad alternative on the market right now. The device comes with a big, 10.1-inch screen and boasts 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity. Though not featuring the same resolution as Apple’s Retina display, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 still enables users to have quite excellent visual effect on its 1280 x 800 pixels screen display.

    Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

    Nook Tablet Barnes NobleIf the Amazon Kindle Fire is a worthwhile purchase, the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet must be, as well. The Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet is a 7-inch Android tablet with 7-inch touchscreen IPS display, Wi-Fi, 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Of course, another advantage of this tablet is also its price, which is the same as that of Kindle Fire.

    Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

    Asus Eee Pad Transformer PrimeWhat’s not to like about the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime? On one hand, the device will allow customers to engage in typical tablet activities, but with the help of an additional physical keyboard, it can double as a notebook. That’s something Apple’s iPad and most other tablets just can’t do.

  • Windows 8 Release Candidate reported to be released by May with an October retail date

    Posted on March 27th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    As a time-limited version of an operating system that’s all but ready to go and occasionally shared with the public as a final test, the Release Candidate of Windows 8 has been paid great attention from global Windows users. Not long before, it’s reported by Bloomberg that Microsoft was looking to an October launch timeframe for Windows 8, which claimed that Microsoft would launch Windows 8 with both Intel and ARM chips, though in disproportionate numbers. The Windows 8 will include about five ARM devices and over 40 Intel-based systems. It’s reported that the Windows 8 will be finished by this summer and hit street this October. Now, the latest report from Windows blog WinUnleaked.tk said that the Windows 8 Release Candidate would be going to street as early as the end of May. The blog wrote in a quite sure tone, “We know the Release Candidate of Windows 8 will be shared with the public between the end of May to the beginning of June”.

    Windows 8 Release Candidate

    Both blogs provided no sources for their claims. The Bloomberg simply made the claim, then embedded a few screens of the operating system with claims the RC will comprise minor user interface changes from the beta (changes, that is, to the Charm bar, the language input menu and the desktop version of Internet Explorer 10).

    That’s launch date for the Release Candidate version of Windows 8, but not for the official Windows 8. The latter is still to be believed to have street launch in October, together with the rumors of the release of Windows 8 tablets to compete with Apple new iPad. Mentioning the Windows 8 tablets, the latest report from PCWorld claimed that the “Windows 8 specs include displays that are even sharper than Apple’s fabled Retina display, which Apple claims is as clear as the human eye is capable of seeing.” The blog said that “Microsoft’s newest operating system supports a 10.1-inch tablet screen with 291 pixels per inch resolution, the company says in its Building Windows 8 blog. That compares to the new iPad with 265 ppi.” Apple’s new iPad has provided excellent digital entertainment for users with its excellent 2048×1536 pixels Retina Display, which produces excellent video experience for users to watch full HD movies. If the reported to be true, the Windows 8 tablets would produce even better experience for users to watch full HD movies on Windows 8 tablets.

    Of course, these are just still rumors and speculations towards Windows 8. What you need to do now is just wait in patience for the official announcement of Windows 8 from Microsoft. Stay tuned for more information.

  • Top tablet comparison – Apple iPad 3 vs. ASUS Transformer Prime

    Posted on March 26th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Just days before, I wrote a post which made a comparison between various tablets, namely Tablet comparison: New iPad (2012) vs. iPad 2 vs. Asus Transformer Prime vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which talks about the differences between different tablets. After that, I also wrote some posts which detailed the comparison between the new iPad and other tablets. Now today, I would like to make another tablet comparison in detail, Apple new iPad vs. ASUS Transformer Prime.

    After the comparison of Apple new iPad vs. Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 and Apple new iPad vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, it seems that the new iPad made two victories. Now, let’s put our hope on the ASUS Transformer Prime and see what the result would be after comparison. Surely enough, the Asus Transformer Prime is bent on showing why it’s that other benchmark device. Honestly, it’s a clash of the titans with these two behemoths, but much like everything else, there can only be one that can reign supreme from the ashes of battle. Still, the comparison would be divided into several parts. Check bellow:

    ASUS Transformer Prime vs. iPad 3Display: This is the gorilla in the room: the new iPad has a wonderful 2048 x 1536 Retina Display which even allows 1080P HD Blu-ray movies playback on new iPad. It isn’t just sharp; it has 44 percent increased color saturation according to Apple, and very good contrast. The Gorilla Glass clad Transformer Prime has one of the best mobile OS tablet displays on the market. It’s a Super IPS + display with a high brightness mode that makes it very viewable outdoors. The contrast is supreme, and to our eyes higher than the iPad 3’s, and colors look simply rich… until you see it next to the new iPad. Apple’s latest tablet has even richer and deeper colors.

    Processor: Thanks to the Apple A5x SoC processor, which consists of a 1GH dual-core CPU and a quad-core GPU, there is nothing that the new iPad can’t handle. With the Transformer Prime’s quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, it’s also lightning quick with its movements, however, our keen eyes notice that the iPad’s movement is just a hairline faster.

    OS: The new iPad adopts the iOS 5 while the Transformer Prime operates on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. Both tablets produce excellent user experience.

    Storage: The new iPad is available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities, no external memory storage expansion attached. However, the Transformer Prime provides 32GB and 64GB versions of internal storage, plus its microSD card slot which allows external memory expansion.

    Internet & connectivity: Both tablets support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. But the new iPad comes with 4G LTE network connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0, while the Transformer Prime supports only Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR and no 4G network connectivity.

    Camera: The new iPad’s 5-megapixel iSight camera shows its prowess over its rival in low lighting situations. Specifically, it wins us over with its correct exposure and natural color reproduction. The Transformer Prime is still tolerable with low lighting situations, but it has a noticeable greenish hue with its colors – then again, it has the benefit of an LED flash to counteract its deficiencies. Both tablets support 1080P HD video recording.

    Battery Life: Both are Energizer Bunnies. The iPad 3 gets there by the way of a huge battery that’s double the capacity of the iPad 2. The Prime has an ample battery and that fifth companion core to save serious power when computing power isn’t really needed. Both tablets run about 8 hours on a charge in mixed use. The Transformer Prime gets the nod for its optional keyboard dock that has a secondary battery that adds 4 hours of additional battery life. The Prime also charges more quickly.

  • Apple iPad 3 vs. Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 – Which one meets you more

    Posted on March 22nd, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    I just wrote a post named Apple’s new iPad vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which makes a comparison between Apple iPad 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to help people figure out which one would be better for tablet choosing. Today, I would like to bring another tablet comparison for you to make it clearer in tablet deciding – Apple iPad 3 vs. Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1. Hope these information would help you know more about these tablet devices.

    As the successor to Motorola Xoom, the 10.1 inch Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 is reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass and Motorola’s own splash-resistant coating for even better protection. Under the hood, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor brings plenty of software muscle and there’s 1GB of RAM to back it up. There’s also a 5MP camera on the back, and a 1.3MP shooter up front for image and video shooting. The excellent configuration of Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1 has made it a strong competitor to Apple new iPad. This post would focus on various features of these two tablets, including: processor, OS, screen display, battery, memory, connectivity, camera, etc.

    Apple iPad 3 vs. Motorola Droid Xyboard 10.1Processor: The Apple new iPad features with new Apple A5x SoC dual core processor with a quad-core GPU, which maintains a steady response to all of its actions and operations. Furthermore, it doesn’t exhibit any bit of slowdown or choppiness with its performance – unlike the Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1’s 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor, which is effective with most things, but at times, has mitigating distractions with processor intensive tasks.

    Screen Display: The iPad’s 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution screen makes users even able to watch full HD Blu-ray movies on iPad 3, while the 1280 x 800 pixels resolution screen display in the Droid Xyboard 10.1 is somewhat a shame when compared to the new iPad.

    Connectivity: Both these two are able to surf on 4G LTE speeds, but the web browsing performances are different, with new iPad producing smoother browsing experience while Xyboard being choppier sometimes. Other connectivity items include a GPS, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and mobile hotspot functionality, as well as Bluetooth connectivity. However, since the iPad is newer, it’s packing Bluetooth 4.0 while Xyboard features with Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.

    Memory storage: Both tablets are available in 16GB, 32GB, and 32GB capacities – with no expandable options allowed.

    Camera: The iPad’s improved 5-megapixel iSight camera allows 1080P video recording while the Xyboard supports 720P video recording. From this point of view, the new iPad would be a better choice.

    iPad 3 vs. Droid Xyboard 10.1 cameraOS: The Xyboard 10.1 operates on the Android 3.2 OS, while the new iPad operates on the latest iOS.

    Battery: After testing, the new iPad performs to be used longer than Droid Xyboard 10.1, but both of them could be used at average one day. That would be quite enough for users.

    Price: Another important element if you want to get one from them. The new iPad prices start a point of $630 for the base 16GB LTE model, which is less than the full $700 outright cost of the comparable 16GB LTE version of the XYBOARD 10.1.

  • 8 Reasons Why Windows 8 Tablets Would Beat Apple iPad 3

    Posted on February 13th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Windows 8 is the next generation of Microsoft’s operating system for personal computers, laptops, and tablets. It upgrades with major changes, such as an integrated software store–similar in concept to Apple’s Mac App Store–and support for ARM chips. Metro is the name of the new touch-centric user interface in Windows 8. Without a doubt, the purpose of Microsoft’s Windows 8 operation system is to compete with Apple iPad. Just several days ago, I wrote a post namely Mac OS X Lion vs. Windows 8 Developer Preview speed comparison, which made a comparison between Mac OS X Lion and Windows 8 Developer Preview in speed testing. The result shows that the Windows 8 Developer Preview takes the lead a little. Today, I would like to share something with you to see whether Windows 8 tablet could beat the Apple iPad 3, totally 8 reasons for your reference:

    Windows 8 Tablet vs. iPad 21. Business users
    Currently, many iPad users handle business with iPad. But Apple has no clear plan to enter large enterprises market with their iPad for business, which Microsoft on the contrast is quite familiar with. If Microsoft could make full use of this, the market share of Windows 8 tablet would be increased enormously.

    2. New Office
    The Microsoft Office is still the killer app in Windows operation system, especially in business market. A fatal reason for the failure of Microsoft’s own brand tablets is that the Office compatibility was damaged in the versions before the Windows 8. Now, Microsoft would provide Office support for tablets with Intel and ARM processors, though it is still not clear whether Microsoft would bring out complete Metro Office.

    3. Mixed type of tablets
    The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime and Leveno IdeaPad Yoga are all multifunctional, not only as a tablet, but also a notebook device, which Apple iPad could not do.

    4. Metro user interface
    Have to admit that the Microsoft Metro user interface is really beautiful and attractive, which may snatch users from iPad cause they would prefer Metro user interface to iOS interface.

    5. SkyDrive
    Through a Windows ID, users could visit SkyDrive cloud content via any devices, including PC, Xbox, tablets, etc. while Windows 8 includes SkyDrive support.

    6. Run two apps simultaneously
    For Windows 8 tablet users, it is a quite practical function to run two apps simultaneously on one screen.

    7. Nokia tablets
    The Finland Nokia has been famous for its stable hardware around the world. It was reported that some time in this summer, Nokia would bring out Windows 8 tablet, which would no doubt arouse users’ interest.

    8. Wider options
    Apple iPad only has one option, while Windows 8 tablets are provided and supported by various big businesses, which results in wider options for optimization.

    By comparing these two tablets, now you may have your decision in your mind. But these are just for your reference. And due to the specs of the upcoming iPad 3’s are still not clear, there are always changes. So, stay clear if you want to get one Windows 8 tablet or an iPad 3.

  • iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano information leaked online

    Posted on February 2nd, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Hi everybody, today, I would like to share some leaked information about your long anticipated iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano. Besides the iPhone 5, fans around the world have paid a lot of attention to Apple’s next generation of iPad and iPod nano as well. The iPad 3 has been semi-confirmed to have a “Retina” display made by LG Display Comp., Ltd. (KS:034220) (sister company to LG Electronics Inc. (KS:066570)).  A report in The Korean Times quotes LG Display CEO Young Soo Kwon as confirming that Retina-display iPads are in production.  The publication writes, “[Kwon] said more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s “Retina Display’’ that has been used in iPhones and iPads.”

    According to the report from BGR, a “trusted resource” person declared he had got the detailed information about the much anticipated iPad 3, which was leaked from iBoot development too. And from these data, we could conclude a lot of detailed specs about the upcoming iPad 3, the most excited of which is that iPad 3 will adopt Apple’s new CPU code – S5L8945X (the Apple A4 model was S5L8930X and the A5 was S5L8940X), the A6 quad-core processor, which would absolutely produce better video and device processing performance than iPad 2. Users could own better user experience with iPad 3, like to watch DVD movies on iPad 3, and better video gaming experience.

    iPad 3 informationThe second news is about the next generation of iPod Nano. Based on macrumors’ latest news, a picture showed bellow indicates the appearance of the next generation of iPod Nano, showing little difference with its predecessor. From the appearance of this picture, the next iPod Nano features with a camera, which is said to be a 1.3 megapixels camera for convenient video shooting and image capturing.

    iPod NanoAbout the release date of iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano, we could make a guess that the iPad 3 might be released in the quite near future, just like the first iPad release time, while the next generation of iPod Nano might fall at its annual music and media event. Still to be confirmed.

  • The most unbelievable rumors said that iPad 3 out in March and iPad 4 in October in 2012

    Posted on January 13th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    After the iPhone 4S came to market, now people around the world who pay close attention to Apple now come to focus on the next generation of iPad, not only Apple fans, but also competitors of Apple as well. Now, there have been so many rumors and guess work done online about the specifications and release date about the much anticipated Apple tablets, while the thing being most focused is about the tablet screen display. Most rumors and guess work predicated that the iPad 3 would configure a Retina display (2048×1536, double the resolution of the first two iPads), which will absolutely deliver better digital experience for users to watch HD videos on iPad or play HD Blu-ray on iPad for unlimited movie enjoyment. However, do you know that there even were rumors about the iPad 4 in 2012? Well, the Geek writer Will Shanklin has written a post about the next generation of iPad and the generation of iPad after the next iPad. Check freely what he said or rumored bellow:

    Retina iPad 3

    Now that the holidays are over, it’s time for everyone to shift their focus onto the next big thing: the iPad 3. In the last week, we’ve already heard a (probably false) rumor that two new iPads will be launching in January, and another that has an iPad with upgraded cameras launching in March. Now we have yet another report: that a Retina display iPad 3 will launch in March, with an upgraded iPad 4 (or iPad 3 Pro?) launching in October.

    The rumor — to be taken with many grains of salt — says that the iPad 3 will sport a Retina display (2048×1536, double the resolution of the first two iPads) and an extended battery. It also, however, says that other upgrades won’t be as exciting as many are expecting. What does that last part mean? It could mean that it won’t get an A6 processor (harder to believe than the other details), or that the form-factor won’t be much different from that of the iPad 2.

    According to the report, the October iPad will be the one to truly behold. It says that the real battle for market share will take place among 2012′s second iPad, Windows 8 tablets, and Intel’s Clover Trail-W platform. The description of the alleged iPad 4 is vague: it iPad Windows 8 tabmerely says that it will have “much upgraded hardware specifications” and “integrated applications” (Siri, perhaps?).

    Would Apple release two iPads in one year? It’s possible, but keep in mind that the same trade publication that ran this rumor also predicted a second iPad in 2011. That obviously didn’t happen. It sounds more likely in 2012, as there is expected to be tighter competition (from Windows 8, a Google tablet, and perhaps a larger Kindle Fire) than there was in 2011.

    Yes, we’re getting into the season where iPad rumors fly in from all angles, with no indication of what’s plausible and what isn’t. Within the next month or two, it will build to a feverish pitch that will take us all back to last summer; that was when iPhone 5 rumors covered the entire gamut of possibilities. Prepare for exhaustion.

    How do you think about the above rumors about iPad 3 and iPad 4? And what are your anticipations towards the next Apple iPads? Feel free to share with us your ideas in the comment part.
