iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, HTC Flyer, or HP Touchpad?

by superNES64 / April 14, 2011 10:04 AM PDT

I am in the market for a tablet but I am having a hard time choosing between the iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (The one coming in summer), HTC Flyer, and the HP Touchpad. I really like Android and WebOS but the iPad 2's Appstore and battery life is currently unbeatable. Then again I am not a biggest fan of apple and I really really am looking forward to the Touchpad but I would like some input.

Add a little more about the use.

For me I have to worry about bluetooth connectivity so my choices are limited. I am porting my apps from WinMo and PalmOS to Android so I have my reasons to pick this but not that tablet.

I can't say I would entertain the HP or the Playbook today. And if the iPad has "one last" feature the choice would be clear for me.

Tell a little more.

I prefer galaxy tab 10.1
by Bobtang5 / June 5, 2011 2:36 PM PDT

I have a xoom. i really like bigger screen and Android tablet . In my opnion i will choose galaxy tab 10.1.

BTW,In February Samsung revealed Galaxy tab 10.1, but after the iPad 2
event they reviewed and found their tablet not strong enough to compete
the iPad 2.Today's Galaxy tab 10.1 is thinner than iPad 2 and starts at $499 same as iPad
2.While there are a lot more tablets looming large on the horizon,both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Apple iPad 2 come with their unique advantages and disadvantages.

I red an detailed comparison article of ipad 2 and galaxy tab 10.1 yesterday,maybe it helps you make a decision.

Go with Samsung

I went for the Samsung Tab 7 when it came out instead of the iPad because it's closer to a pc (can play videos) and because it's smaller (more mobile).

Even now, with the Samsung Tab 10.1, I'd get the Tab 7. It's cheaper and I prefer the smaller size. I wonder if the 10 will sell better than the 7.
