Just two years ago there was a gap in the market that needed to be filled. When you think about the two extremes, most people either using desktop computers or laptops, it now seems strange that it took so long to fill the gap. Today there is a balance or is it? Right now it seems every computer manufacturer popular brand or not have tablet pc models available or on the way. The craze over the Apple iPad has created a surge of interest in having a tablet pc over a laptop and in some cases having a desktop. The tablets that manufacturers are releasing are competitively priced and packed with enough GHZ and RAM needed for gaming, watching 3 hour movies, GPS, and surfing the web. One company that offers several models nicely priced is UrbanTechDeals.com
UrbanTechDeals.com also carries one of only a few tablets that has all the features mentioned above plus the capacity of android phone— Just add your 3G Sim Card and the tablet will do the rest. This tablet is comparable to the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The tablet is a 7” carries Cortex A8, 1GHz CPU (supports 32GB), 512 RAM, Android Froyo 2.2, WiFi, Flash 10.1, GPS, HDMI, Camera, Multi-touch Capacitive Touch screen, Virtual keyboard, Ambient Light Sensor, 3 axis Accelerometer, 4 directions, 6 hours of battery power and much more
The Apple iPad 2 has sold millions of units worldwide in the first few days of launch, Apple fans wait in lines over night to get their prized toy. However the Apple iPad, Smasung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom and some othe popular are a bit pricey. If you’re seeking an affordable, robust alternative to the iPad and other pricier models, there are options based on price of the Android 2.2 and 3.0 models at UrbanTechDeals.com.
So to choose a good Andorid tablet let’s start with the basics. Imagine you don’t know what Android is (I’m sure if you’re reading this a lot of you do). Android is an open source free operating system owned by Google. Originally it was planned to be used as a mobile phone OS (operating system) but with such muscle power, it has expanded its horizons. As a mobile OS it is already hugely popular, Motorola, HTC, Sony and many others have adopted it as the OS of choice for all their smart phones and here’s why:
• It’s open source
• You don’t have to pay for it.
• Opportunity for companies to make killer apps that they can put out onto the market with no licensing costs
The fact that it’s open source means anyone can develop apps for it, modify it or do whatever they like with it. A huge subculture has grown around Android OS. Developers and programmers have all jumped on the Android bandwagon. This is why many believe the Android application and apps will soon overtake Apple’s application and App Store. Due to Andorid’s flexible application, the assumption is that it will just keep growing and advancing.
However, even though the market has adopted the Android OS robustly, the Android tablet is being understated by many, even Apple’s Steve Jobs. According to Jobs “Seven-inch tablets are tweeners: too big to compete with a smartphone and too small to compete with the iPad,” Jobs said, in an extended thrashing of Apple’s competitors. “These are among the reasons that the current crop of 7 inch tablets are going to be DOA — dead on arrival.” However, according to Wired Magazine “The real mistake in Jobs’s logic is thinking that the 7-inch “tweeners” have to compete with the iPad. They don’t. Mini-tablets could be to the iPad what mini-notebooks are to the MacBook and MacBook Air: smaller, less-expensive form factors that appeal to people looking for different features. Tablets running a full desktop OS like Windows 7 and Android are different still.”
The Android market is growing by leaps and bounds every month. Many tablet manufacturers are using it as the OS of choice for their tablets. Most of them can do everything the iPad can and for half the price. These tablets may not be as slick (yet) but many of these tablets offer features that the iPad can’t because the iPad has a closed architecture. The best Android tablets have:
• HDMI ports that output 1080p video, meaning they are also portable HD media players
• Memory card slots so you can easily put data on and take it off
• 1GHZ + Expandable HDD / 512 RAM
• Access to the myriad of apps available to Androids at Google android market and much more.
