Which tablet has the best display? Apple iPad or the Android wanna bees?

Best Display? iPad 2 vs. Motorola Xoom, Asus Transformer

Displaymate test shows the Apple iPad 2 tablet has best in class brightness, black level, contrast ratio, and the longest battery life. The current iPad display also has the least amount of reflection.

“The Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer reflect over 50 percent more light than the iPad 2.”

Conclusion? iPad wins hands down, even before considering Android problems such as lack of Apps (except for malware), sluggish hardware, fragmentation problem, Google anti-competitive caveman club, lack of support and clear upgrade path

For the current set of tablets the iPad is the clear winner in every category, which is somewhat surprising considering it was the first tablet to launch and the one that later competitors knew they had to beat – but as of yet none have succeeded.

Android Tablet Problems

And also, Android tablets still can’t display full color. That’s the perpetual beta Google software for you:

Android 3.1 continues with a substandard Gallery viewer for photos and images that provides 16-bit color processed up to 24-bits with poorly implemented dithering.

    By the time the competition catch’s up to the iPad 2, if they ever do, the iPad 3 will probably only push it way over the top yet again!
