Hello World!

ipad v/s stone

The iPad is a good tablet, but lets face it, it has a lot of drawbacks in terms of features that consumers are beginning to expect.

  • No Multitasking
  • No HDMI (many PMPs support HDMI out these days)
  • No front facing camera (rules out video conferencing)
  • No Flash (Crippled web support)
  • No USB (This makes transferring content impossible without access to a pc)
  • Not Widescreen (16:9 videos play with bars on top and bottom)
  • Fixed battery (Average lifetime of an ipod has been around one year, limited by its battery).

When it comes to software, the iPad has a good collection of touch friendly apps optimized for the tablet, some that many android tablet owners wish were available on their tablets. But one would guess that android/windows marketplace would catch up with equivalent apps at some point in time.

A number of android/windows/webOS tablets with hardware specs better than the iPad have been released recently, with more announced for release in the coming future. We hope to discuss these tablets, netbooks and android/windows apps, that could compete with the iPad.

We revamped our website design and moved to a better host over the weekend, to gear up for the large number of new tablets that are set to be released over the next few months. This will lead to some invalid links for users coming from google until pages are re-indexed.
We also added facebook, twitter, openID and google signin to simplify login to our forum. Hope you enjoy the new website!
