Mobile computing is on a roll. Ever since Apple launched its first iPad in 2010, development and production of tablet PCs have never looked back nor slowed down. New models are being launched left and right by computer manufacturers. All major players now have their own version of the tablet PC that hope to get a slice of the pie from the market, which is clearly dominated by Apple.
Now that Apple has launched its newest version called the “New iPad,” it got the people giddy and excited with anticipation. It was a big improvement from the iPad 2. That is why a lot of people are already thinking ‘where can I sell my iPad so that I can upgrade to the new one.’ You may be wondering why the interest in the latest version. This is because of the specs, which include a super high resolution, Retina Display at 2048×1536 pixels, a powerful A5X processor, upgraded camera and it can already accommodate a 4G LTE network connection.
The specs really made a great jump from the previous version. So a lot of the Apple Fan boys said that this was the best tablet in the market already. This might be true as the Android-based tablet PC makers have yet to launch improved and upgraded versions of their products, which might make people, think ‘where can I sell my iPad.’
Now, the only Android-based tablet PC that could be compared to the new iPad is the Asus Transformer Prime. This tablet PC is powered by NVIDIA quad core Tegra 3 processor and it has a docking port facility that doubles as an external keyboard. The docking port also has its own battery, an additional USB port that can be used for additional storage. Price wise, this tablet is a little bit cheaper than the new iPad. The only disadvantage of this is that it only comes with a Wi-Fi connectivity options unlike the new iPad. This is the only thing that may make people think twice before finding out where to sell my iPad.
When talking about the hardware components of both the iPad and Android based tablets, there is not much of a difference. All these tablets are as powerful as a laptop already which is why a lot of people, even office workers prefer this now over bulkier laptops. As for the applications, there is not much of a difference there either because both the Apple AppStore and Play Store have almost the same titles available for download. Developers are now making their software with versions that could be used on both platforms.
It is in the actual user experience that can make people compare the differences between the two tablet PCs. It is also a matter of personal preference whether you go for the iOS or for the Android. If you were a hardcore computer enthusiast, then maybe you would go for the flexibility of the iOS. However, for those who just want to enjoy the freedom and mobility that tablet PCs give, then both would be able to suffice.
