Best Android Tablets in April 2012
1. Asus Transformer Prime
Asus Transformer Prime is currently the best Android tablet on the market and it has been released in October 2011. It comes with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP full HD camera, 1.3Ghz Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, and a 10.1-inch Super IPS+ LCD display. It comes with either WiFi or WiFi + 3G connection and Android 3.2 Honeycomb, while Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is available for update.
A keyboard is also available for it, which can transform it into a full featured laptop.
2. Asus Padfone
The Asus Padfone has been released last week in Taiwan and is going to reach the other countries this month. It’s a more special 3-in-1 device considering you get all its accessories. The tablet requires you to have the smartphone too, because it doesn’t work without it. So you can have either a smartphone, which can be attached to the tablet and there it is the tablet, either a laptop, if you attach it to the keyboard.
Now talking about the specs, we have a 1.5Ghz dual-core Krait CPU, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch Super Amoled HD display, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Each accessory comes with its own battery so you will see an improved battery lifetime while using them all.
3. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5100
The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 hasn’t been released yet, but Samsung announced it recently and it should reach stores this month, so you have to wait a bit if you choose it. It will come with a 10.1-inch PLS TFT display with Gorilla Glass, 1Ghz dual-core Cortex A9 CPU, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD, 3.15MP camera, either a WiFi or WiFi and 3G connectivity.
Samsung’s new tablet should weight 588g, measure 256.6 x 175.3 x 9.7 mm, and feature a 7,000 mAh battery.
4. Motorola Xoom 2 MZ615
This tablet is also known as Motorola Xyboard 10.1 and it features a HD-IPS LCD display, either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, with a microSD memory card slot supporting up to 32GB. It also comes with a 1.2Ghz dual-core Cortex A9 CPU, 5MP full HD camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 7,000 mAh battery.
Out of the box it comes with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but an update to ICS 4.0 is available, fortunately.
5. Acer Iconia Tab A500
The Iconia Tab A500 has been released this month, though it doesn’t come with the last high-end specs. It’s 1Ghz dual-core CPU and currently non-upgrade-able Android 3.2 Honeycomb put it behind its competitors, though it justifies the lower price. But except for the CPU and Android version, it’s not a tablet you should forget about, considering the 10.1-inch LCD display, internal storage of 16GB or 32GB, 5MP full HD camera, and 1GB of RAM.
