Tablets tablets everywhere! Aaron throws the Apple iPad 2 and the Motorola XOOM - the respective champions in their arenas - into the ring for a tablet dogfight. The Apple iPad 2 offers Apple's A5 dual-core processor, 9.7-inch display, a front and rear-facing camera, and is packed in a body that's 1.33 pounds. On the other hand, you have the Motorola XOOM, the first tablet to premiere with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). It offers a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 10.1-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and LTE support (though it's not available just yet).
Apple's iPad is an excellent option for those new to the smartphone/tablet field, but Honeycomb is to a point where it can compete. Which one is the best? We'll find out. Part 1 of 2.
