Need a Tablet By July 5th - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Mate once the new tegra 4 tabs come out in Q1 2012, sell the TF. At least you will have a new toy to play with till then. $399 now then later it can easily be sold for 250-300 bucks. Im liking mine a lot. Way more real estate then my iphone and im actually typing this on the tab

You will not be disappointed by the iPad. If I was you I would get it because by the time android can compete with iOS, you will be looking for a new tablet. This is technology. Buy what is the best RIGHT NOW and worry about the future when it gets here.

Edit: remember that this forum is very anti-apple. Most of it is irrational hate. Try out both types of tablets before you buy them and let your trials influence your decision more than anything else. Do not get caught up in the promise of the future. The future is never as quick as people say *caugh bulldozer caugh*.

I dont understand ignorant people. Were letting him now what is best out there. The ipad only has apps over the android tabs. The asus TF has better spec then the ipad. I've had both i can tell you the transformer is better. Apps will come, i heard that the android market will surpass the apple app store by year end. Time will tell.

Here we go with time again. Time time time time time. Who really wants to wait a year? This is technology. In a year, windows 8 will be out and it will rape android and possibly iOS. I like to get what's best at the time and worry about the future when it comes. Why make yourself suffer?



The TF is not better speced over the iPad 2 btw. it is actually way worse than it.
Wahoo!

You must not have compared the spec. The TF has a better screen, ram speed, micro hdmi, micro sd. They both have the same battery life but the TF wins once docked to the keyboard. Cpu is about the same but tegra 2 beats out the samsung a5 chip by a little. Storage im going to give that to the TF since it is expandable unlike the ipad 2. The TF even has better cameras. Man you know what the only thing i can think off that the ipad 2 has over the TF right now is apps and its thiner. Oh wait...Flash...oh no thats the TF my bad. Also can you overclock an ipad 2?

screen, please. 16:10 is a bad form factor. The apps are not looking pretty on the tf. The a5 is better than the tegra 2. The graphics beat it by a long shot. That is why honeycomb is so choppy. the iPad has better battery life. iirc the tf only lasts 6-7 hours. cameras are better on the transformer but you know what? No one uses cameras on tablets. you can say flash all you want, but the major websites have all moved to ios compatable formats which run flawlessly. I guess ios doesn't get flash ads... darn. it all comes down to the software though. ios runs flawlessly while android runs choppily. you can believe an update is inn the way, but you can never really know. I stand by my unbiased words when I said that the op should buy what is best now and worry about the future when it gets here.

Lol please mate do your homework before posting. I have 3 iphones currently using ip4 and have an ipad i can tell u this is not a biased decision but android is better. 3.1 honeycomb is awesome you say chopy where im usingit right now its silky smooth. I hope ur still stuck on android 1.6. As for the battery on the TF its a bit over 9 hrs with the dock a friend gets a bit over 18 hrs. The thing with iOS it gets slow after a while and need to perform a fresh instal. On the other hand android doenst. I need todo this to both my ipad and iPhone4 every 6 months.

Since the 3.1 Honeycomb update, the UI runs smooth as butter (zero lag, zero choppiness) and web browsing has significantly improved. Flash content is more than just ads; what you get are embedded games and videos such as in Newgrounds or Youtube and those work well for the most part. While we're at it, raw 720p MKV formats play flawlessly even on the stock video player.

And 16:9 is a more practical ratio. How wlese would you watch HD videos usually encoded in 720p or 1080p format? What about reading e-books that look better in both landscape and portrait in 1280x800 resolution?

Protip: Tegra 2 is as capable as the A5 in games and media consumption, and can be overclocked for better performance. The A5 won't get any faster when the OS is locked down, will it?

Don't wait for the Quad-cores, honestly. I just sold my old 1000HE for 200$, making my TF101 cost barely 200$, really. When the quad comes out, if you really feel like there's a world of differences, sell your TF101, and get the TF201 or whatever it'll be.

It'll sell easy. You might not even need a quad-core power if they optimize it properly, too.

Also the new quad core Tegra 4 chip-set coming in Q1 2012 isn't helping.
I'll make it help even less. Quad core Tegra 3 is coming out Q3 2011 As in, actual tablets released with it.

I agree with this. I love android, but I bought an iPad for the apps. By the time I buy a new tablet, hopefully android apps will have caught up. They have everything, in my opinion, better besides the apps, but the apps are a massive part of the tablet experience.

Phone apps will surpass the apple app store. Not tablet apps. Sure, android tablets run android phone apps better than the iPad runs iPhone apps, but native tablet apps are so much better.

Funny, Tegra 2 is relatively weak (it's over a year old before any product was released with it, what can you expect). Ram speed, who was giving out specs on this? Ram quantity, but not speed. Finally, better screen? I admit I haven't seen the two side by side, but every review puts them pretty much the same quality.

*Note: The anand benchmark isn't perfect. The app that they used does not use the Tegra 2 fully, only about 60% according to users who sideloaded the app due to the issues. Still, It's not great. It's also weak compared to the Snapdragon Dual core and the Exnyos.

Android does not run choppily. In fact, coming from an android phone, I am really disappointed at how laggy my iPad is. It's not hugely laggy, but in displaying web pages it's especially noticeably. Other long lists can lag pretty noticeably as well.
