General Comparison


Asus Google Nexus 7 Cellular vs BlackBerry 4G LTE PlayBook: Comparative analysis
Asus Google Nexus 7 Cellular is an Android tab that has been announced in 2012 October and is expected to release on November 2012. As the name means, it is clear that the tab supports cellular tasks i.e., call can be made with the help of a sim and hence it offers all features that a phone can give. The important thing is that the device uses Android platform to operate,i.e., it works over the all new Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean) and can be upgraded to v4.1.2.

BlackBerry 4G LTE PlayBook is a BlackBerry tab that was announced in August 2012 and released on the same. From the name itself, it is clear that the device has a support of 4G (LTE) technology. But the tab lacks the feature of cellular data,i.e., it doesn't allow us to use sim card. This tablet uses the BlackBerry Tablet OS v2.0 to operate.

Comparison of design and display

Both the tabs have same screen size, but they differ in their display clarity since they have distinct display feature and resolution. Asus Google Nexus 7 Cellular is better since it has a highly featured display. The lack of screen protection facility and less display clarity of BlackBerry 4G LTE PlayBook tab makes the other one as the best.
