I seem to get at least one call per week lately asking me about tablets. What is the best tablet? Is the iPad the best?
I own an iPad, Galaxy Tab (first version), Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and just sold my Motorola Xoom. Two people in my family have the iPad 2.
I'll give you my opinion. Remember it's just my opinion -- I am known for testing all sorts of new technology.
First when it comes to "usability" it's hard to beat the iPad. iPads are really easy to use and reliable. It's a great product.
As far as speed goes. The iPad 2 runs very slow when it comes to the 3G internet. My sister-in-law has an iPad 2 on verizion and it's much slower than the Xoom or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (We will call these Android Tabs). The Android Tabs are very fast when comparing 3G speeds. So it's a fair comparison. The Xoom, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and many new tablets have 4G capabilities. That is something the iPad doesn't have.
Also a BIG problem I have with the iPad stuff is the fact they refuse to support Flash. The Xoom runs flash perfectly. My kids can even play Flash games and run the browser version of YouTube easily. Thats why I prefer the newer Android devices.
The Samsung Galaxy was my favorite and I purchased the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tablet. Also consider the SWYPE keyboard. It's terriffic (look it up at tswipe.com).
Last point. The Xoom is terrific however I ran into a bug that causes the keyboard to lag a bit in very large web pages. Not many people are bothered by it. I was so I sold the Xoom.
