Does the new iPad® have an edge over Windows® 8 tablets?
The new iPad would be on sale from tomorrow. We have discussed earlier that Windows-based tablets have a few advantages over the iPad in general. But Windows 8 tablets are yet to hit the market. Considering the availability of iPad and the recent news about a price reduction on the earlier generation of iPads, does the Windows 8 tablet still have an edge over them? Let’s see some of the features of the new iPad and decide.
Better camera and display
Apple has brought the HD experience to iPad with its latest offering. This new display is what people are calling the killer feature. Once you get to see the screen of the new iPad, you wouldn’t like the display of any other tablet, they say. As of now, none of the technical specs of Windows 8 tablets have been released by any manufacturer. Windows 8 tablets could sport a HD display too, right?
The new iPad’s processor has been upgraded to A5X. Dual-core processing and a quad-core processor for the graphics mean only one thing – they mean business. And since the display has been improved, the processor upgrade was a necessity. This means the iPad will now respond to you faster than ever. Another area of worry for Windows 8 tablet makers?
Apart from all the other hardware upgrades, this small feature could mean a lot for iPad. Bluetooth on iPad could work wonders for Apple. But again, this doesn’t mean Windows 8 tablets won’t have the Bluetooth capability or cannot have it. This competition could only mean one thing for the consumers; better tablets in the near future for all!
Whatever Apple has done with its new iPad, Windows 8 tablet makers could replicate it or come up with something better. But, with people already spending money on Apple’s products, isn’t the market for Windows 8 tablets getting smaller?
