Compare Apple New iPad (iPad 3) and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Apple has finally launched the new ipad on 8th march 2012. However potential buyers would like to know the pros and cons of iPad and how it compares to other tablets available in the market. In this context I have compared the new iPad with another new coming tablet from Samsung- the Samsung galaxy tab 10.1.

Since the new iPad has been launched, people are debating over its features. No doubt it has a great looking screen and a faster processor; but it was not upto the expectations of people who imagined great new features like infrared keyboard or gesture control. The new iPad is rather a step forward in terms of iPad development than a giant leap. Nevertheless the iPad has managed to grab some eyeballs with the 2048 x 1536 resolution screen which is believed to be better than any other screen including your HD Television. The Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 on the other hand tempts the potential digital painters with the S Pen which can be used for some serious sketching and painting on the new Samsung galaxy note. Let us now compare the two tablets to check which of them will better suit you.

Operating system and Processor

There is a tough battle going on between operating systems and it has become hard to decide which operating system to go with. On one side is Apple's iOS which is fluid and elegant and on the other hand is the Android operating system with its open Android market hosting whole lot of FREE and Paid applications.

The new iPad comes with the latest iOS 5.1 Operating system and houses a 1 GHz dual core processor with the latest Apple A5X processor with quad core graphics processor unit. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 on the other hand comes with the Android v 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System. It has a 1.4GHz dual core processor but no additional GPU.

Memory and data

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes with a 1GB RAM and 16, 32, 64 GB internal storage options. It also includes a external SD card slot with support upto 32 GB. The new iPad also comes with 16, 32 and 64GB internal memory storage options but lacks an external SD card slot.

Both the tablets support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with A2DP. Although the Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 has the older Bluetooth v3.0 as compared to Apple iPad with Bluetooth v4.0.

Display and camera

The Galaxy tab 10.1 has a large 10.1" PLS TFT screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The Apple iPad on the other hand comes with a 9.7" LED backlit TFT screen; however it boasts of a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels which is way higher compared to the galaxy tab. Both the tabs have 16 million colors with capacitive touch screen with multi touch.

The Apple packs a 5MP camera similar to the iPhone 4S with image stabilization and Infra-red protection. It can shoot HD videos at a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. The Samsung Galaxy Tab on the other hand comes with a paltry 3.15 MP camera. It however can shoot HD videos at 2048x1536 pixels at 30 fps and has a better 2MP secondary camera as compared to the iPad with a VGA camera.

Body and other features of New iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The Samsung Galaxy tab, although has a bigger screen is comparatively smaller and lighter than the iPad. The iPad may be heavier than its Samsung counterpart as it houses a 43Wh battery which will provide you with straight 10 hours of internet browsing or viewing video. The Samsung on the other hand comes with a paltry 7000mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 comes with the P pen which has pressure sensitive Wacom stylus support and hence can be a great tool for graphic design or digital painting.

There is still no information on the price of the Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 but is expected to be around $399. The new iPad is priced at $499 for the basic 16 GB Wi-Fi model.
