The iPad surely got a major kickstart and leg up when it was introduced over a year ago, but thanks to the widely accepted and never ending growing penetration of the Android platform
, we're starting to pay attention to what's happening on the other side of the fence with Android tablets...a few which offer features that trump our trusty iPad.
Asus Eee Pad Slider
This is an Android tablet that is made for fast typing. We love that it features a full QWERTY slide out keyboard and it is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2. 2 cameras and a 10.1" touchscreen running Android 3.0.
Motorola Droid Xoom
Verizon has the first Android 3.0 tablet available. We like the new look and feel of the OS and is even optimized for the Xoom's bright and crisp 10.1" display, pumping 1280 x 800 pixels. Improved multi-tasking and 3-D desktop with a bunch of interactive widgets. Video and voice chat is compatible thanks to the front facing camera.
This will be a great alternative for those looking for an WiFi only iPad. The Toshiba Tablet (that's what is called for now) has Tegra 2 Power, booming speakers and resolution plus technology that enhances the quality of the images displayed on its 10.1" screen. You even have a choice on 5 colors on the EasyGrip back.
