Gadget addicts, look up!: in the ongoing IFA electronics show in Berlin, the much-talked about so far has been the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung’s Android-powered tablet which is now touted to be the closest competitor to the earlier-released Apple iPad.
Samsung Galaxy Tab isn’t available locally yet (so we might as well hold our horses) but it’s worthwhile to compare the two, based on Samsung Galaxy Tab vs Apple iPad specifications. Unless iPad upgrades itself to include more features, looks like it’s Samsung FTW!!
SGT – 7-inch TFT LCD with 1024×600 pixel resolution
iPad – 9.7-inch LED glossy widescreen display with 1024×768 pixel resolution
iPad – none
Samsung Galaxy Tab – 3MP AF camera with LED Flash, 1.3MP front camera for video calls
Refer to above. SGT allows one to make video calls, while iPad doesn’t. This also means that next generation iPad might have the feature as well.
