Posted by aropkp
2011 is now 96 days old. But somethings are still keeping the sense alive, at least when it comes to technology and gadgets, and what they can offer to its customers. We all know brand loyalty does exist in today’s competitive market. Once you get glued to a companies products you expect them to come up with products that are common among users for e.g. the Tablet. Not to complicate any further, lets steer ahead.
With Samsung Galaxy as the last offering for 2010, much it knew what it will be against when 2011 arrives. Feb 2011, HP TouchPad Tablet was released, HP flaunted its webOS, which was initially developed by Palm (2010 Palm was acquired by HP). What webOS provides is a great multi-touch user interface and the webOS browser i.e. “web” uses a webkit layout engine. The best part about the synchronization is that, it uses cloud based sync.
By March, followed by the much awaited tablet of the year Ipad2 (for review click here), but what followed is Moto Xoom (for review click here). With Blackberry’s 4G PlayBook, which already being pre-ordered. Now comes HTC’s Flyer and Acer’s Iconia.
Focusing to deliver on performance, it provides a 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM and a symmetric multi processing. The best feature provided is the flash site capability which seems to outperform other tablets performance. Coupled with 4G technology and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR support it provides a seemless connectivity feature. Taking care of its existing customer base who work their way out of the smart phone, the blackberry experience will still make it easy for them by providing wireless connectivity with a real-time access to mails, calendar and tasks.
