Which is the best: Tablet iPad or Android? We should first discuss the Android software platform and Apple in general, and then discuss in the form of tablet computers, especially the iPad 2 and the Android Honeycomb operating system on the tablet Motorola Xoom uses.
The main difference between Apple and Android tablet computer operating systems is that Apple only for Apple devices is a closed system, specific system, while Android is an open source. This means Android is free for developers to run both in designing applications and hardware as a platform.
Android now belongs to Google, Android Developers Inc. Bought in 2005. Google opened the source at the Open Handset Alliance (OHA). It is in the context of free software license Apache. 2010 was recorded by Canalys as a software platform for the success of smartphones in the world.
A common platform
This is the background for Android, which is now used in tablets to compete with the Apple iPad. Since the iPad uses a proprietary software platform, it is a restrictive feature of Android devices and therefore do not have the same bandwidth announcement among the devices is that Android tablets will theoretically. However, since Android tablets stick to the infancy, this degree of community platform is not used for any advantage.
At present, there are still a number of apps for Apple than for Android tablet devices - but this should only be a temporary state, as the development of applications for Android in progress.
IPad 2 vs Android Tablets
How does all this material translate are not used by either of the two operating systems? There is now a comparison of the iPad 2 with the best Android tablets basically. There are many tablets that can not compete with the iPad or iPad 2, but there were many good Android tablets developed using top companies such as Acer, Samsung and Motorola, and this is the last thing we should look at here.
The Motorola Zoom Tablet uses Android Honeycomb OS and is thicker and heavier than the iPad 2 (0:34 v 0.5 inches). Both have dual-core 1GHz processor, but the zoom has 1 GB RAM 512 MB versus iPad 2 offers.
With iPad 2, this is a stochastic process that needs to be done through iTunes. It is not necessary to use iTunes to download music: you can easily download the music for the Xoom tablet, drag and drop, without requiring a large heavy folder that iTunes requires is in its memory.
Another advantage of the Android tablet that true multitasking that the iPad does not. There are many other advantages that Android tablets have the iPad 2 has to offer, including greater flexibility in file and symbol management. Not limited to Apple's formats because you are someone you are using can use Android open source software.
Now, however, more and more rely on the Android platform, it does not take long before they exceed the iPad apps.
Apple or Android Fan
Finally, you can choose between the iPad and Android tablet, here it is proven by Motorola Xoom or you are not an Apple fan. Apple fans are likely to stick with Apple's product, as it seems at present there is compelling reason that they are computer fans, the iPad instead of Xoom should use - although big Android tablets in the market.
The Android platform software has, as more companies offer only slowly, but gradually, the market and Apple their own versions of Android tablets, this competition versus the iPad 2 will increase. Except now is Apple vs Android.
