iPad VS. Sumsung Galaxy Tab

Answer:


Portability And Display

iPad Screen: 9.7-inch; Dimensions: 190mm x 243mm x 13mm; Weight: 680-730g
Galaxy Tab Screen: 7-inch; Dimensions: 120mm x 190mm x 12mm; Weight: 380g

 

Performance

iPad CPU: 1 GHz Apple A4; GPU: PowerVR SGX 535; RAM: 256MB; Operating system:currently iOS 3.2, iOS 4.2 coming later this year
Galaxy Tab CPU: 1 GHz 'Hummingbird' Application Processor; GPU: PowerVR SGX 540; RAM: 512MB; Operating system: Android 2.2, upgradable to Android 3.0 but no date mentioned

 

The Apple iPad uses its own A4 processor - the same one that is found in the iPhone 4 and the new Apple TV - and its own iOS operating system for nippy web browsing and playback of video. The interface is extremely smooth. And even no long later a new iOS 4 will come out that is available for the iPad to boast multi-tasking, too. However, iPad is still missing the support for Adobe flash and there is no plan on it.

 

Of course, Android has had multi-tasking all along, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab is no different with its 2.2 Froyo edition of the Android OS. It's also got a 1GHz processor and an iPad-beating 1080p video playback(iPad is able to play 720p video), as well as Flash support. Another feature that the iPad lacks is the ability to make voice calls using a SIM card, making this a true big brother to the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone.

 

Connectivity

This is another stumbling block for the iPad, coming as it does with only a 3.5mm headphone jack and a standard Apple 30-pin charging port. Adding any peripherals on will require a dock, which will cost you a pretty penny on top of what is already a not-inexpensive piece of kit. It does have WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 on the standard models, though, and for an extra £100 and a monthly fee you can get a micro 3G sim for on-the-go web browsing.

 

The Galaxy Tab includes a slot for a normal SIM card, so you can use it for calls, texts and web browsing just like a massive smartphone. It also carries Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi and comes with a MicroSD slot, so you can transfer files more easily, or just beef up the Tab's storage space.


Price

There are three models of iPad available to buy; sizes available are 16GB, 32GB or 64GB, and each size is available with or without 3G, with 3G models costing $130 extra (plus a monthly fee for internet usage). A 32GB WiFi-only model will cost you $599, while a 64GB WiFi-only model costs a princely $699.

 

Though, the official pricing of Sumsung Galaxy Tap hasn't been announced just yet, Samsung suggests Galaxy Tab will cost between $200 and $400 on contract -- also coming to Vodafone.
