Consumer reports has released their tablet ranking and it should not come as a surprise that iPad 2 is excellent in all categories. Other tablets from Motorola, Dell and Samsung made the cut of top 10 but are left behind the incredible iPad 2. For all its tablet OS for tablets and I am the best kind of ads, Motorola Xoom is behind iPad 2. In fact, it has tied its place with the first-gen iPad. Something Apple will be smiling about.
The tablets are ranked on 17 different parameters some of which include touch screen responsiveness, versatility, screen glare, ease of use and battery life. iPad 2 was the best in terms of battery life. It surpassed Apple’s projection of 10 hours and a continuously looped video has played for 12.5 hours on a single recharge.
Sub-$300 tablets are worse in performance as the battery life did not last for more than 4 hours. The conclusion from the report has been “ You get what you paid for”. Cheap tablets means sacrifices on quite a few parameters. To just reinforce, iPad 2 rocks. There is no competing Android tablet.
