Steve Jobs announced the launch of many new “Dead On Arrival” (DOA) Tablets.
So, let’s check the best candidates for this funeral ranking.
First one: Toshiba Folio 100
An Android 16GB tablet to be launched in November (UK) with these Pros & Cons.
Bigger touchscreen than the iPad (10.1 inches)
I doesn’t quite have the resolution of the iPad (1024 x 768)
A 1.3 Mp web-cam for video calls.
Displays Flash animations.
Cheaper (329 GBP): 100 GBP less than the iPad.
USB 2.0 port (not in the iPad or Galaxy).
Less intuitive operating system (FroYo).
Less sophisticated design.
Access to less apps, many of them designed for Android iPhones, so not optimised to run on big-screen devices.
Only seven-hour battery (40% less than the iPad)
Only wi-fi version (3G option later).
IN A FEW WORDS:
Big but not sexy.
More movie-centric than media-centric.
Not an iPad killer.
“It’s the wine, not the bottle”.
So, hurry up, and register in the INMA/INNOVATION Harvard Tablet Summit.
The deadline is coming.
