Not until explored I got to know about some superb alternatives that render equally fabulous and friendly User Experience (UX), with some even surpassing Apple’s flagship product – iPad (as reported by Study). I was impressed by a few features of following 5 tablets and iPad Alternatives:
1. Dell Latitude 10: A study commissioned by Dell and carried out by Principled Technologies showed that the 10.1-inch Latitude 10 was 17 times faster, 94% less expensive for deploying compared to iPad and 99% faster for software updates. The tests concluded that the tablet was 85% cheaper per device to maintain over a three-year period.
But this was not the only study that came up with such an astonishing conclusion. What another report from analyst Patrick Moorhead claimed was that Dell’s tablet is more secure than the iPad.
Even the price tag of this gadget is impressive just like its capability. A 64GB model costs about $579 while a soon and set to be launched 32GB version will tentatively be available at $499 later this year.
2. Amplify Tablet: The 10-inch Android Tablet manufactured by Asus offers a quad-core Tegra 3 system-on-chip and is powered by Android’s 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. What fascinates me about this product is its long lasting battery that is almost 8.5 hours (which I’ve only read about but not tried myself). But that’s not the only admirable thing about it.
What delights me more than that is its Eye-Tracking Technology regardless of product being majorly inclined and intended to serve educational purposes.
The entry level Amplify tablet price starts from $299 and goes up to $349 for Amplify Plus, which comes with a 4G data plan.
3. Kuno Tablet: I see a wonderful gift in it for my child cuz this tablet is Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA) compliant for keeping kids safe on the web. Besides the 9.7-inch tablet powered by Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, features dual-facing cameras, USB and HDMI connections and a 1024 x 768 resolution display with quoted battery life of 7 hours for video and 10 hours for browsing the Internet.
4. LearnPad Quarto: This tablet also offers a 9.7-inch screen with 1024 x 768 IPS display for excellent viewing angles and boasts of a dual-core 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, dual-facing cameras and connections for micro USB, SD and HDMI.
Again the full battery recharge lasts for about 8 hours & this tablet is available for a moderate price of $302 though the premium version, LearnPad Folio goes up to $454.
5. Amazon Kindle Fire: This tablet’s Gorilla Glass wins my heart however the exclusive advantages for the IT managers and others, provided they sign up to use Amazon’s Whispercast is that using the cloud-based service, IT administrators can roll out apps, documents and books to various Kindle Fire devices.
Passwords can be enforced to protect content, while admins can also stop users from doing a factory reset, visiting Facebook or Twitter or buying content from Amazon. Kindle users can also be organized into groups.
Just give a shot and try out these wonderful tabs. And share your experiences via comments.
