HP TouchPad vs iPad 2: web browsing comparison
Actually, we decided to see how it performs against the competition – and in this case, we’re using an iPad 2 to see how it delivers the goods to the table. Connected to the same Wi-Fi network, we opened a link in a window to see which one loads up the same page first. And right off the bat, it’s evident that the TouchPad is delayed with its operation in rendering the page. Both pictures and text load up in a timely manner right away on the iPad 2, while the TouchPad takes quite a bit of time before loading up anything at all. Furthermore, there’s some choppiness evident with the TouchPad’s navigational controls – meaning, kinetic scrolling and pinch gestures aren’t as smooth looking compared to the iPad 2. However, the one advantage it holds over Apple’s pride and joy is the fact that it’s able to provide that desktop-like experience thanks to its support for Flash.
Granted that Apple has spent a great deal of time refining the web browsing experience with the iPad’s browser, we’re still in the early beginnings with the TouchPad – albeit, we’ve already witnessed the PlayBook in the same scenario before, but it managed to hit the mark dead on. Still, it’s tolerable from what we’ve been checking out so far, but after seeing the competition before it, there’s naturally going to be a lot of expectations going forward in this area.
