It sounds like they are building iPad on 1994 [Video]

Ideas don’t just come to us overnight. It seems like people have been looking at tablets even during 1994, and what they have been designing sounds very similar to what we have now in our iPad.

Of course we know that Steve Jobs has been wanting to build iPad from the first day he starts his company, but technology is just now there. All computers are just too bulky and no way to pack them into such a slim device like iPad.  But it is just pure amazing that people has been toying around the idea for so long.


Tablet War – iPad vs HP TouchPad vs Xoom vs PlayBook

Tablet War – Aftermath of Smartphone

Tablet War is raging, so this is the aftermath of Smartphone War that Apple started 3 years ago. Apple have launched iPad 1 year ago, and now after 1 year, tons of tablet will be in the market in 2011!

Year 2011 is the Year of Tablet

HP just announced webOS powered TouchPad, Motorola is releasing Xoom(powered by Android) in a few months time, and BlackBerry  has plan to release PlayBook in 2011. Of course, we all know that Apple will be launching iPad 2 very soon, although we don’t have the specs yet, thus the comparison is done with Apple’s 1 year old iPad.

Check out the comparison chart by Engadget:

Honestly, before the looking at the chart, I though that it will be very unfair to compare tablets that have yet to launch with Apple’s iPad which is already 1 year old. But honestly, from a unbiased point of iPad’s hardware specs is not shy of any of the compared tablets, it is almost as powerful. Although the official price of the HP TouchPad, Blackberry PlayBook and Motorola Xoom have not been announced, but the rumored price point are same if not higher than Apple’s iPad.

Let’s wait and see the battle of tablet in time to come. Stayed tuned with UsingApple, and enjoy this war.
