Many excellent tablet pcs come to the market recently., such as Lenovo's Idea Pad K1, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Apple Ipad 2, and Wopad i7, Venus Pad(the latter two are recommended by Pandawill,not so good as the former three)**and so on. The configuration become better and better and the operation become smoother and smoother. In general use, they are almost same, but for critical demand, they differ from each other a little. Let's first see the main specs of the five tablets.
As for CPU, Tegra 2 Processor**is manufactured under 40nm processing, A5 processor,manufactured under 45nm processing; NIVDIA**Tegra 2 Processor ,40nm processing, Rockchip 2918, 55nm procession. As is known to all, the smaller the figure is, the powerful the CPU to be. In video decoding, graph manipulation and memory extendability, Motorola Xoom gets better performance. For amateurs, this difference may not noticeable. But for the professional ones, they may be critical about these functions.
Android 3.2 version operations system is no doubt the latest operation system. The new android 3.2 v brings along optimizations for a "wider range of tablets," as well as "compatibility zoom for fixed-sized apps," media sync from SD card , and an extended screen support API . In fact this functions are not necessary, but for some users, they may need. As for android 3.0 and android 3.1,the differences are unnoticeable. But the ios 4.3 operation system, the browser is slower than that android 3.2 runs.
There is no need to talk much about the screen, Lenovo IdeaPad K1, Motorola Xoom and Venus Pad get the highest score.
Short reviews about ever tablet:
The good: Lenovo's IdeaPad K1 packs in all of the best features found in today's modern Honeycomb tablets and offers some unique Android optimizations and preloaded apps. The 5.0MP rear camera and 2.0MP front camera is seldom seen in tablet pc.
The bad: The design is thick and heavy(264 x 189 x 13.3mm, 700g) compared with the latest from Apple and Samsung, not all of the Android tweaks pay off, and the screen isn't as bright as it could be.
The good: Besides boasting what we consider to be the most complete and clearly functioning version of Android, the hardware which is packed inside Motorola's tablet is really quite good.
5.0MP rear camera and 2.0MP front camera. HD display.
The bad: Some wonky buttons such as volume key and power key, some new softwares are not supported such as the Market app and Movie Studio.
The good: A5 CPU get more powerful than the predecessor, really fast, unbelievably thin (0.34 inch), high quality screen,
The bad: its operating system still has significant annoyances, like the aggravating pop-up notifications, 512MB RAM is absolutely going to cripple the device when multitask run. And the poor cameras(0.3 MP in front and 0.7MP in back) also drag the device.
This tablet is just made for amateurs. All performance are acceptable compared with the three above.
The good: android 3.0 features, good for staying connected with others through social network.
The bad: 512MB RAM is certain to limit its performance in multitask running, and display is not for enjoying video or picture.
As a middle-high end tablet pc, Venus performs really well, its display, its application support, and video fuction are really great. But if the software can keep advance with the android 3.2 OS, the tablet will be a super tablet. And if the RAM is 1GB, when run multitask it may be smoother.
The Good: Android 3.2 OS, IPS display, HD video play and output
The Bad: poor camera, No 3G, No GPS,small RAM
