The so-called “Battle of the Tablets” continues as companies like Apple, Samsung, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft try to get the upper hand from each other. As time goes by, these companies continue to introduce new features, new design, new models, new apps, and more ways to attract customers into choosing their product so that one of them can reign supreme. They are really in for a battle.
For consumers, the “Battle of the Tablets” is good news. This is because as these companies continue to outshine each other, people are left with more ways to enjoy awesome new features from time to time. Also, as these giant companies compete in the market by introducing lower prices, customers will have more access to cheaper tablets.
As the competition rages on, let’s get a glimpse of what Microsoft, Samsung and Asus have in store for us:
Microsoft is now making noise about its new tablet called Microsoft Surface. This tablet is the first consumer tablet that will be using the capabilities of the new OS from Microsoft.
There are few options when you come to purchase the Surface with Windows RT. There are two models a 32GB and a 64GB, with options for a touch cover. Prices start from £399 in the UK from the Microsoft store.
The Surface Pro is now also released with Windows 8 as its OS, this device surely holds many promises. This will also be a good way for Microsoft to prove itself in the world of tablets. This is much more business friendly than Surface with Windows RT, as Windows RT does not come with exchange support. Also you can’t run normal Windows on RT devices either.
Samsung Series 7 11.6 slate
Is very much a notebook replacement but in a tablet format. It runs Windows 7 OS although Windows 8 is recommended. An Intel Core i5-2467M processer is included, with a display resolution of 1366×768. The battery will last about 5 hours which is very much less than the iPad offering about 10 hours. The hardwre are build quality is excellent.
To get the full potential of the device you will need to be running Windows 8 which comes with the metro touch interface. This device could potentially become a great iPad competitor.
Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101
Asus is known in the business for providing quality laptops for business requirements. They are one of the top vendors for such devices. It is no surprise they also have a competing tablet device. The Eee Pad Transformer TF101 runs on Andriod. The hardware incorporates Nividia Tegra 2, 1 Ghz dual-core CPU. An optional full QWERTY keyboard is also available. For business purposes it comes bundled with Polaris Office suite.
