D3Live: Apple iPad 2 vs Blackberry Playbook vs Motorola Xoom
In this episode of D3Live I discuss the upcoming tablet showdown between the Apple iPad 2 vs RIM Blackberry Playbook vs Motorola Xoom for the best tablet of 2011.
The next generation Apple iPad 2 is going to be a substantial upgrade from it's predecessor and should sport a dual core processor, perhaps known as the Apple A8. It also likely will have a Retina Display with a resolution of 2048x1536 along with a SD card slot, both front and rear facing cameras as well as a new tweaked design.
The Research in Motion Blackberry Playbook is a very promising tablet that should be on sale in the coming months. It runs a custom QNX operating system and has some very powerful hardware including a dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 1080p rear facing and 720p HD front facing cameras. It will have a 7" screen and be available initially on the Sprint 4G network.
The Motorola Xoom is going to be the first ever Google Android flagship tablet, being the first tablet to launch with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It features the dual core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset along with a 10.1" display with a resolution of 1280x720. The Xoom has a lot going for it between the excellent design and support for Verizon 3G.
