The tablet PC war has began.

Will there be a possibility of formation of third category ? Currently there are the Apple and Non-apple tablets categories.

  • All tablets support WiFi, otherwise it defeats the purpose. The basic idea of a tablet PC is to have instant access to Internet.
  • Not all tablet supports dual camera.
  • All tablets will have some sort of application to support scribing and drawing. Some may have writings' recognition technology.
  • For Android devices, almost all manufacturers enhance extended features to increase unique selling proposition or to create differentiation.
  • All tablets will have support for multi-tasking due to the OS platform.
  • Not all tablets deployed dual-core processors.

What about video output ?
  • iPad supports video output via extension of its 30-pin dock connector port
  • Playbook and Xoom have support for HDMI output
  • But I think that as long as it supports USB, there will be a compatible USB accessories which will support USB output (eventually)

I would expect Blackberry Playbook and Android based devices to have a sea of software applications including games as much as what iPad's AppStore has to offer.


I think Blackberry Playbook and Motorola Xoom are the most impressive ones, couple with good marketing and information. Playbook has the upper hand on the business community market while Xoom has the advantage of being in the so-called open source market.

My choice, my needs ?

I am actually looking at a 7" wide screen tablet PC to replace my paper based notepad, for scribing and drawings (of notes and ideas).

Looks like all of the devices can support some forms of scribing and drawing, with HTC Flyer particularly focusing on this application.

I am also looking at a device which can support some forms of Window based application such as ppstream and pps.tv which I think Firefox compatible devices will be able to do that, so it has to be Android based devices.

Well looks like with current standing, I will go for Xoom as my first choice.

But I think cost is also very important factor to decide on.

Funny Names:

Some of the model have funny names. I think the best name would be iPad, Galaxy and Xoom.
