Android Tablet Comparison Spring 2011

    I have an Acer Iconia A500. The screen/display is gorgeous. The statement about “low color display” is idiotic.

    If you really want to provide useful information why not list the dimensions and weight of each device instead of simply saying thick and heavy over and over.

    • As long as your happy with the Acer Iconia, then it shouldn’t matter what others think.

      The truth is the Acer Iconia can only display 262,144 colours. While all the other Tablets can display 16,777,216. It’s an unarguable fact that photos and video can look a bit off with a low colour display, especially if they have any gradients. But most people probably won’t even notice it, but I do and this is my blog.

      Also did you not look at the information to the right of the image where it says width, height and length in milemeter and the weight in grams. I’m calling all of the 8 – 10″ Tablets thick if they are thicker than 10 mm. Compare the thickness of these tablets to the iPad 2’s 8.8 mm and the Galaxy Tab’s 10.1’s 8.6 mm and you will see why I call them thick. Also anything over 600 g is definitely heavy for a modern Tablet. I may have repeated it, but that’s no my wrongdoing, it’s all of these manufacturers who are a year behind the curve.

      The three most important factors to a tablet are the display, size (weight and thickness) and price.

      Thanks for your comment.

    What about battery life?

    • I haven’t used all of them and I have seen different battery life results from every review I have read. Once they’re all available and thoroughly tested by a source like AnandTech who consistently does heavily regulated multi device battery comparisons we should allow us to declare any winners.

      As far as battery specs goes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has the biggest battery at 7000 mAh so given the similar hardware and software it ‘should’ have the best battery life as far as tablets go. If your going to use a keyboard dock, the ASUS EEE Pad Transformer combined with the dock provides the absolute best battery life so far.
