It’s like Thunderdome, man! And Mad Max has GOT to be somewhere around the burning wasteland, waiting to bash a bad man’s metal head in with a hammer. “Two Men Enter, One Man Leaves!”
Except this isn’t talking about flesh and blood. This is practically the top of the food chain. It’s what humans these days can’t seem to live without. It’s the lifelines, the beating hearts, the prosperity all rolled up into one little device—called a “tablet.”
Tablet technology—it’s here to stay, and people absolutely love it. Even Mad Max would love it.
The thing is, currently, the top contender in Thunderdome is none other than the iPad from Apple. This nifty little device can basically do everything a computer can do—and then some. And it fits in both hands, all without a keyboard. Your touchscreen turns you into a god playing with a little world in your hands. That’s the iPad. That’s tablet technology.
But now the iPad has a challenge. It was begging to come. Thunderdome has a new contender. The championship is in jeopardy.
Enter: the Motorola Xoom!
Now listen up, folks. This system in a slim box is no slouch, and in many ways it surpasses the iPad. So there’s going to be some serious fighting here. Looking similar to the iPad, note that the Xoom sports both rear-facing and front-facing cameras with one capable of HD recording (a feature the iPad currently doesn’t have). It boasts a larger higher resolution screen supporting Adobe Flash, and services the Verizon network instead of AT&T. One of the best advantageous features is the Honeycomb Google Android operating system. Why is it so advantageous? Because it’s currently the ONLY device to harness the latest Honeycomb update, and it’s designed specifically for tablet technology. Not too shabby.
Seems like the iPad has its major competition. And it’s pretty scary. Not for consumers, though. All consumers will be doing is chanting “Two Tablets Enter, One Tablet Leaves!”
