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.

Carlos Cliett I can't believe that people are still riding that Apple bandwagon. Iphones, Ipods, and IPads are all the same. They are just different sizes. APPLE sucks!

Thomas Li
Thomas Li Xoom... agree apple has more apps than android, but I'll say most of the apps that you use in apple can be found in android markets (or similar apps)... >65,000 apps doesn't mean there is no duplication... I am guessing a lot of them have similar features... so.. imo, # of apps isn't a major reason... I remember I see a quote, "What the iPad2 does can be done by my iPhone4, why do I need an iPad2??" <-- of course, except the screen size...
Dave Uchiha

Jason Villegas I love android but unfortunately apple has more school related apps that at the moment set it one step ahead..if Android had the same or at least on par with some of the stuff apple has in regards.to their school related pieces id be android 1000%..until then ill have to live with basic interface..

Jonathan Garcia
Jonathan Garcia Xoom. All the iPad2 is is a big ipod touch. What a waste. Apple really needs to step their game up and make something unique already. I guess the only smart thing about them is that they kno how to get all these Apple fanboy idiots to buy anything that has a Apple logo on it, even if it was a big steaming pile of shit, people would still buy it lol
