This past year has been an exciting one in many respects. It has definitely been a roller coaster of a ride. The ups and downs of the economy, the re-election of the first African-American president, the ongoing conflict in the Middle East. So many newsworthy events took place it’s nearly impossible to comment on them all.
The hot topic in the Android community right now is malware aka viruses. Its unthinkable but unfortunately its true. Unscrupulous individuals have developed malware that can infect your android smartphone. They can masquerade as legitimate apps, so its even more important to only download apps from known sources (i.e. Android Market, Amazon App Store). Read the rest of this entry »
Unless you’ve literally been under a rock these last couple years, you know that the iPad is the hottest selling computing device on the market. Ultra portable touch screen thats super easy to use, crazy long battery life, and tons of cool and useful apps in the App Store. Its easy to see how the iPad has created the frenzy it has. It is also easy to predict the next phase… competition.
Apple has a well established reputation for creating products that inspire fierce loyalty from its users. The iPad is near perfect, and the iPad 2 is even closer. It’s going to be hard for any manufacturer to top that act. Here’s a few of the better attempts:
- Asus Eee Pad Transformer - Android 3.0, Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 10.1-inch capacitive display at 1280×800, full-size keyboard dock, card reader, HDMI-out, rear-facing camera, front-facing camera. Asus has been making good netbooks for awhile now and this tablet dosent lower their grade. One of the best Android tablets available.
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Android 3.0, 1GHz dual core CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 10.1-inch capacitive screen at 1280×800 (WXGA), 3MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3G. This is the one to watch! Arguably the best Android tablet currently.
- Motorola X00m - Android 3.0, Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, 32GB Flash storage, 10.1-inch capacitive LCD at 1280×800, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, barometer, gyroscope, 5MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 3G, 730g. A second generation Android tablet that looks very exciting!
- Blackberry Playbook - BlackBerry Tablet OS (QNX), 1GHz Cortex A9 dual core CPU, 1GB RAM, 7-inch capacitive LCD at 1024×600, 3MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera, 400g. The only non-Android tablet in the “one to watch” category, the Playbook promises a lot of future potential.
As you can see, the iPad cant be content to rest on its laurels. It may hold the crown for right now, but the contenders are hot on its tail and ready to snatch the lead! Definitely a race we are going to watch closely!
