iPad or Android tablet?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm not trying to start a fan war, so be quiet and leave.

I possessed a school iPad, and it has an Animation (similar to Adobe Flash Animation), but I wonder if Android Tablet will do the same? And I have some experience with an iPad or little of it.
I do know in term of price, Tablet will be the winner, but I want to know about the performance and the apps quality.

(By iPad, I don't mean iPad 1. I mean iPad 1, 2, and 3)
I've look a lot of Tablet, and I was wondering if Asus Eee Pad Slider is any good for let say college?
Does it have a good word processing like notepad from iPad?

I'm just a little confused between iPad and Tablet.

I forgot to mention, I am trying to use the tablet/iPad as for animation stuff. Maybe use it as a practice until I have better equipment and softwares for it.

What kind of animation are you wanting to do? I don't know of any animation software for the iPad.

That.... I haven't really decide, but probably some sort of a small click of video or animation for video games.

I don't entirely understand what you mean, but why don't you search the iTunes and Google Play store for this type of app that you're looking for first, to make sure that it has what you want.

Otherwise you may want to go with a x86 like the Windows Surface tablet.

The Eee Pad Slider is either discontinued or close to it. It came out when the original Eee Pad Transformer TF101 came out.

You can get great performance from an Android tablet for a price. I recommend that you look into either the new Asus Eee Pad Transformer Infinity TF700 or the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. These two tablets have the best processors and the best graphics processors of any of the newest crop of 10" tablets.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is what I would recommend for someone who is looking to use their tablet for artistic work. It has a pretty nice note pen digitizer that allows you to rest your hand against the tablet while you write with the stylus. This makes it perfect for people who are most productive when taking handwritten notes. It is the perfect tablet for someone who wants to make full use of apps like Adobe Photoshop Touch. The GPU this tablet uses handles video and 3D graphics better than any other Android tablet currently on the market.

The Transformer Infinity is what I would recommend for someone who wants a tablet that can double as a netbook-like device. You can buy a keyboard dock for it that all but turns it into a netbook, giving it the form factor of a 10.1" laptop. The keyboard is actually surprisingly comfortable to type on as long as you don't have huge hands. It also has the highest resolution screen of any Android tablet, 1920x1200, supporting full HD video in all its glory. The GPU is the same as you find in the Asus TF300, but it has been clocked higher, giving it the ability to keep up with the current list of 3D games in the Google Play market even though it has to draw almost twice the number of pixels of the Galaxy Note 10.1. It also comes with Polaris Office included for free, so you have the ability to work with Microsoft Office documents out of the box.

I use my tablet to keep track of my servers via SSH, and I can access my Windows 7 desktop thanks to TeamViewer or any number of remote desktop apps (RDP, VNC, etc.). It also handles Netflix and Hulu+ like a champ when I have the time to catch a flick. I have done a decent amount of scripting over SSH when I don't have the opportunity to make it back to my desktop, so it passes the emergency coding test.

I really don't understand what you mean by animation with a tablet, though. There are a few apps that allow you to create things like simple Flash animations or stick figure animations, but you won't find anything that will give you any productive level of quality. A tablet would be perfect for showing a client the animations that you have been working on at your computer, but it won't do you any good if you expect to create any sort of animations on the tablet itself.
