5 current alternative tablets to the new iPad
Now that the cat is out of the bag, there’s no arguing there are going to be some frenzied people heading out to their favorite Apple store come March 16th to pick up the new iPad. Knowing that it’s boasting some much-needed upgrades, some are willing to give up their old iPad 2 and pick up this new one instead – so quickly without hesitation or rational thinking. However, before you simply get caught up in all of the spectacle surrounding this most up-to-date iPad, there are some other alternatives out there in the market worth contemplating about.

Specifically, all of the competition can be found in the horde of Android-based tablets out there. Aside from their glimmering high-end status, some feature some unusual tertiary things that most people wouldn’t fathom seeing on a tablet. Whereas the new iPad maintains the same good old fashion pricing from before, these Android tablets vary in price points – thus, encompassing pretty much any budget out there. Therefore, before making a snap decision on picking up Apple’s latest pride and joy, just take a quick peek at some of the other healthy alternatives out there in the market right now.

You can't go wrong as long as it's not the Htc Flyer. Talk about outdated.

I give Apple Credit they do a great job "marketing", Making people think they must buy the ipad. If google did half that in marketing it'd be different. There's nothing special bout the iPad. Higher Resolution?? The human eye can only see so much. Apple give me flash support and memory expansion, then we'll talk. oh wait? You are a "closed os".. not gonna happen!!! I want to be able to watch my flash content. I want to be able to swap out content via my flash drive w/o itunes. Apple just doesn't provide that. I understand your point on a user experience, but that only gets u so far. There is a point when you reach apples limit of the closed OS. Google just does a much better job of this, and unless apple opens up its os, it will remain this way. Android is growing fast! Android is doing to apple what Microsoft did to Apple in the 90's. History will repeat itself!
