Apple iPad 2 Vs HP TouchPad An Electronic Gadget Comparison Powered By Docstoc
					Apple iPad 2 and HP TouchPad are two of the most popular tablet PCs in
the market today. They are similar in size, but the iPad 2 is slightly
thinner than the TouchPad. Often, both gadgets are portrayed in opposite
colors: Apple iPad in its signature white, and HP TouchPad in black
color. White represents good, while black represents evil. But do the
gadgets really represent good and evil? Or, are they just a combination
of yin and yang which represents the balance? I guess we should not need
to worry about what represents which. We should worry more about their
specifications as it is what we would like to talk about.

As mentioned previously, regardless the brand markings and colors, they
are similar in size. As a matter of fact, the iPad 2 and the TouchPad
have same screen measurement. Both tablets feature a 9.7 inch screen with
4:3 aspect ratio. Further, both gadgets offer same 1024 x 768 pixels of
resolution with similar color quality. Each gadget also has a front
facing camera although different in resolution. HP TouchPad sports a 1.3
megapixel camera which can be used for video chat. Meanwhile, although
smaller in resolution, the 0.3 megapixel camera in Apple iPad 2 has more
function than the one belonged to the TouchPad. The camera of iPad 2 can
be used for video chat as well as shooting self portraits.

When it comes to the material used, iPad 2 somehow is more solid than the
TouchPad. While the TouchPad is made from plastic, the iPad 2 is made
from better material. Nevertheless, TouchPad is heavier than iPad 2.
Perhaps it is due to iPad 2's ultra thin feature. The 8.8 mm thickness of
Apple iPad really beats HP TouchPad's 13.7 mm thick feature.

TouchPad uses the webOS 3.0 operating system while iPad 2 uses the fourth
generation of Apple's iOS. The webOS is by far an excellent platform.
Some even say that it is better in terms of performance when compared to
the highly praised Android Honeycomb. While Android needs to catch up its
technology, webOS is already settled. But do not forget that iOS 4 is
also a strong platform. In fact, it has been proven that the iPad 2 is 4
times faster than the first generation iPad.

Apple iPad 2 was released in March 11, 2011, while the HP TouchPad will
be released later this month. Available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of
storage options, both tablets offer competitive price, ranges from $499
to $599 depending on the brands and storage capacities.
