Furthermore, the former has a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and the latter a 1.5 Ghz 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor, which should make only a slight difference for the average consumer. However, Amazon does claim that it’s Kindle Fire HDs  are the fastest tablets out there, surpassing even the iPad 3. How is it possible you ask? Well the claim to have a dual band and dual antenna which makes WiFi downloading speeds 41 % faster than the iPad 3.

Google’s Nexus 7 has been a hit, surpassing its expectations, and setting the bar higher for other tablets. However, we couldn’t say the the Google Nexus 7 doesn’t come without any flaws, including a missing back camera, and no 3G connectivity. The latter of these problems will apparently be fixed, in the next 6 weeks, as is rumored. If Google is already fixing one problem, maybe they’ll fix something else. What do you think?

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has had numerous teasers released around the internet, therefore anyone could have seen this release a mile out. The tablet with its release, has come forward a respectable list of specs. We’ll start off that  it’s a WiFi version only, and currently no 3G/4G connection is available. However, there are some other specs to make up for it, for instance a 1.9 MP (front) and 5.0 MP (back) cameras, 16GB flash storage (upgradable to 32GB for $50),  1,280 x 800 TFT LCD display, quad-core Exynos 4 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, 2GB RAM, and of course it will be running Android (4.0, unfortunately not Jelly Bean). And if that doesn’t call out to you then maybe an S Pen that comes with the tablet. So get ready to empty your wallet August 16th for its release date.

Microsoft Surface tablet possibly priced at $199, release date October 26th

Microsoft Surface Tablet

As we are heading closer to the early fall, where a lot of new gadget are being debuted, Microsoft has still to decide Surface tablet’s price tag. There have been backed up rumors that the tablet will be priced at $199 as Acer has been begging Microsoft to increase the price. The reason behind the plea is that Microsoft will be selling the tablets at a loss and will hope to earn its massive profits from accessories and add-ons to Windows 8. However, Acer cannot afford to do that, as their company’s cash reserves are dwarfed when standing next to Microsoft’s and they don’t even own the operating system. Although hopefully, for consumers sake it will be priced a $200. In other words, for $200 its a no-brainer purchase, if they decide to sell it at around $500, people will consider it, but at $1000 (around the same price as ultra-books) there’s no way that anyone would buy it, unless they have cash to spare. Finally, on October 26th we’ll hear how much our wallet will have to cry out when empty them.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 16GB pre-orders now and ships tomorrow from Negri Electronics

What a unique tablet to find on Negri Electronics. You can now have it but for a pretty expensive price tag. $750. Worth it? Possibly. Just remember it doesn’t come with the latest Android. So Android 4.0 will have to suit you. But it does come with some pretty decent specs, including 3G, two cameras (5MP and 1.9MP) and the back one comes with HD video. You can also rely on its 1.4Ghz Quad Core Exynos 4412 (the same as in the Galaxy S III). If that’s still not good enough, it ships tomorrow.
