HP TouchPad vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

HP TouchPad vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
On the whole, battery life appears to be on par with one another seeing that they’re able to establish a commanding one day’s use of normal usage. Knowing that, it’s able to adhere to the needs of every kind of user out there – from light to heavy, you’ll sleep soundly knowing they’re capable of dishing out some great battery life.


Already, we’ve shown in our recent comparison between the HP TouchPad and Apple iPad 2 that the pricing of the webOS 3.0 powered tablet is indeed one of our biggest concerns presently – mainly due to its missing features over the competition and less than desirable design. And honestly, we’re being filled with the same exact feelings with this comparison as well against the Honeycomb flavored Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Still, there are some aspects about it that we prefer over Google’s tablet offering – like its engaging implementation of multi-tasking and bountiful set of third party apps from the beginning.

Nevertheless, considering its significantly thinner and lighter design, as well as  more polished OS, we do think that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the better all-round offering at this time.

As long as these two are priced exactly to one another, it’s difficult to side with the HP TouchPad before HP manages to bring a number of improvements to the platform that will enhance the overall user experience. Until then, the TouchPad will remain at its current position of being a runner-up in this comparison.

Thanks for making it an one on one comparison, and bringing this to the table, regarding the ability to close apps, found an article regarding this matter on Droid life regarding multiple tasking on Android. Don't know if you've read if. Ill post it here later ....
