What You Need To Know About New IPad, New iPad vs Note 10.1 vs Xoom 2 vs Transformer Pad Infinity: OS
The new iPad launches with a new variant of Apple’s iOS – 5.1. It’s also available for older iOS models. The Transformer Pad Infinity and Galaxy Note 10.1 both have Android 4.0, though the former has Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay. The Xoom 2 launched with Android 3.2. The Xoom 2 will get Android 4.0 in due course – it’s slated for later this year.
New iPad vs Note 10.1 vs Xoom 2 vs Transformer Pad Infinity: Processor
The iPad 2 introduced the A5, a dual-core chip based on the new ARM Cortex-A9 design, clocked at 1 GHz. We don’t yet know what the new iPad’s evolutionary A5X is clocked at, but it remains a dual- core chip. Indeed, all these tablets are dual-core rather than quad-core. The Galaxy Note 10.1′s chip is clocked at 1.4 GHz, while the Xoom 2′s TI OMAP 4430 is 1.2GHz. The Transformer Pad Infinity employs the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, clocked at 1.5GHz.
New iPad vs Note 10.1 vs Xoom 2 vs Transformer Pad Infinity: Graphics
What the A5X does have is better graphics capability – with Apple saying it has quad-core graphics. Like the iPhone 4, the iPad and iPad 2 both had an Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX-based graphics chip – the new iPad has the PowerVR SGX543MP4.The Xoom 2 uses a similar chip, packing the PowerVR SGX540, while the Asus uses the Adreno 225 GPU from Qualcomm (alongside the Snapdragon CPU component featuring two so-called Krait cores).
New iPad vs Note 10.1 vs Xoom 2 vs Transformer Pad Infinity: Storage and memory
Like the original iPad and iPad 2, the new iPad comes loaded with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage. The Galaxy Note 10.1 and Transformer Pad also come in these sizes. The Xoom 2 only features 16GB of memory. All the tablets have 1GB of RAM – we believe the new iPad has doubled up on the iPad 2′s 512MB of RAM.
All have microSD slots except, of course, the iPad.
