A proper tablet comparison should review the hardware specs, the content eco-systems as well as the operating systems of each device.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
There are a variety of tablet computers to choose from among all the Android, Windows and Apple (iOS) tablets out there.Among the Android tablets, Amazon Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Nook HD, and Google Nexus range of tablets are the most popular ones in the USA. The commonest challenge a person encounters when purchasing a tablet is deciding which tablet suits them best. The recently published “5 Decisive Specs – Kindle Fire HDX vs Google Nexus vs Apple iPad” published by Tablet XRay discussed the more important features to consider when comparing the tablets.
5 Decisive Specs - Not all specs are equally important.
According to the review, there are several dozens of technical features one could compare between two tablets. However, only a handful of them are important when choosing one out of the three. For example, they emphasize that the content eco-systems that provide content for the respective tablets, even though neglected by many reviewers, is an important spec to consider. They point out that even the most sophisticated piece of electronic hardware is worthless in the absence of high-quality videos, apps, ebooks, software and music to populate it. The cost of content is also very important in the long run. For example, over the lifetime of a tablet, one may purchase 100s of ebooks, apps, videos and MP3s. Using a cheaper digital store to buy this content can save him or her $100s in the long run. The review on http://tabletxray.com/kindle-fire-hdx-vs-new-apple-ipad-vs-google-nexus-spec-comparison/ compares various aspects of the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon Digital Store and Google Play Store in addition to comparing many hardware specs. Anybody interested in buying a Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 or iPad Mini tablet this year should read it and become aware of those differences among the 3 stores.
Another important feature they emphasize on is the processor speed and RAM. Both the Google Nexus 7 and the 3rd generation Kindle Fire HDX have 2GB of RAM while the 5th generation iPads only have 1GB of RAM. The two android tablets have a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processors, however, that of the Kindle Fire HDX is faster at 2.2GHz compared to the 1.5GHz on the Nexus 7. Again, the iPad trails behind with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor. In addition, they also look at the tablet displays (resolution, pixel density and other features), the operating systems that’s behind the user interface etc. in detail.
In addition to comparing the 7” Kindle Fire HDX and Nexus 7 with the iPad Mini, they also compare and contrast the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9”, Nexus 10 and iPad Air tablets. It looks at 10 different features of the 3 tablets. This comparison shows that the 8.9” Amazon tablet is superior to the other two tablets in most spec comparisons. Both the 7” and 10” versions of the Google Nexus tablets have the advantage over the other two in the fact that they are run by stock Android which is highly customizable. In contrast, iOS or Apple and Fire OS 3.0 of Kindle Fire HD cannot be personalized and people have often compared them to “walled gardens” in contrast to the "open garden" of the ASUS made Google Nexus.
