Apple iPad 2 vs Samsung Galaxy tab 8.9 vs Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 vs Motorola Xoom vs Blackberry Playbook

The tablet platform is hotting up with Apple releasing its iPad 2. I was never really interested in the iPad once I found out more about it, in fact, I was a little underwhelmed, I’m not sure why though.

With all the competition around now with Android 3.0, Blackberry and their Playbook and the “imminent” releases of HP’s WebOS based tablets everyone can actually have their own style of tablet, much like when the swathe of Android Smart Phones came out to challenge Apple for the iPhone crown.

I’ve created a run-down of the latest tablets in the below table, the details in it are as accurate as I can gather, prices are likely due to change though.

Great blog post. However, I’ve heard that the Apple iPad 32GB is better than the Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Do you agree?

No, I don’t agree. I’m not a fan of Apple products though so I’m probably biased.
