Top 5 Tablets That Could Rival Apple’s iPad 2

After we saw all the specifications of the new iPad 2, I think I am entitled to say that all was just an excessive fanfare. Even if analysts are saying that, until the end of this year, over 4 millions units will be shipped, we have certain reasons to not believe this thing will happen. For the same money you can buy tablets produced by Apple’s competitors, which offer better features. We made a top 5 list of tablets that can easily compete with Apples iPad 2:


5. HP Slate


The elusive Windows 7 tablet will cost up to 599 dollars. HP Slate features a 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display, UMA graphics, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor, and a Broadcom Crystal HD chip, which is an accelerator for 1080p video playback. Also it has 1 GB non-upgradeable RAM memory and 32 GB or 64 GB of flash storage.


Other features of HP Slate tablet are: a SIM card slot for the optional 3G modem, battery that lasts up to 5 hours, a dock connector for power, audio, and HDMI out, USB port, an SDHC slot and 2 cameras. The rumored announced time for the release of HP Slate is June 2011.


4. Dell Mini 5 (Streak)


We’ve already made an article where we presented some specs of the Dell Mini 5. Yet, if you’ve missed that, here is a short review of its features: a 5-inch LED-backlit, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 800x 480 capacitive multitouch displays, 405MB of DRAM, 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, second front-facing camera of 648 x 480 pixels, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, SIM card and microSD card slots, GPS.


The price for Dell Mini 5 is not et known, but we think we will found out soon, since its release is announced for June 2011.


3. Lenovo IdeaPad U1


You already know that I appreciate a lot everything that comes from Lenovo, for its durables and features. The new Lenovo IdeaPad U1 doesn’t disappoint me, again. It runs Windows 7 with a 1.3 GHz Core 2 Duo SU4100 chip. If you will pop up the screen, it will instantly become a multitouch tablet, running Linux. With a battery life of 8 hours, the tablet has 3G, an 11.6-inch LED-backlit resistive multitouch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, 6GB solid-state drive, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, an 1.3-megapixel Webcam and a media card reader.


The release date for Lenovo IdeaPad U1 is announced for June 1. It will cost 999 dollars, but this is not too expensive, if you think that you can use it both as a tablet and as a laptop.

2. Notion Ink Adam

This tablet, despite iPad 2, screams innovation. Some of its features are: a special multitouch-enabled 10.1 inches transflective screen from Pixel Qi, which will switch between friendly e-paper and color LCD modes, a 3.2-megapixel, 180-degree-swivel camera, a HD Tegra 2 processor, an HDMI port and 3G network.

1. Archos 9 PCtablet

With a 60GB hard disk, a front-facing Webcam, Windows 7 and Flash support, Archos 9 looks impressive. If we add here that it costs only 549 dollars, for sure we can say it is a really great deal.


Other features of Archos 9 PCtablet are: 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z510 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM, Intel GMA 500 graphics, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mouse-click and virtual keyboard buttons, optical trackpoint and mini backlight
