Which Tablets Have a promising Future?

28 Sep

The Ipad (also known as the huge Ipod) changed the way people ehhh , well it didn’t change much but it certainly became very popular to own a tablet of your own and play Angry Birds while waiting at the airport.
Perhaps what one really buys when getting a tablet isn’t a necessary gadget, perhaps its simply buying coolness.
Whatever it is, tablets are gonna be all over the place and we’re all eventually going to own one .
So Which Tablets will be the Best?

There are plenty of tablets out there from all the big companies, here are the 5 most promising tablets.

1. Kindle Fire (pre order at amazon.com)

The Kindle Fire is the first Kindle to have a color display, you can basically do what tablets do best, consume your media comfortably. Songs, email, browser, books, movies the whole nine yards. And best of all its only $199 (Which means buying it to find out they’ll release a better Kindle with a camera in a year, wont hurt as much as buying an Ipad). Amazon is also releasing a black and white Kindle Touch (3G $149 and WiFi $99).

2.Samsung Galaxy

Samsung has been growing the last few years, and its no surprise. They really know how to create simple user interfaces that are easy to understand. Although the Samsung Galaxy might not be as good as the Ipad (which is probably the best tablet in the market today). But it has something that the Ipad will never have. Android and all its possibilities (click here to see why Android is so cool)
The next Generations of the Samsung Galaxy have a promising future, many experts consider Samsung as the future competitors to Apple (at least in the tablet world)

3. Blackberry Playbook

Its alright… this tablet wouldn’t make the list if this article was about the best tablets today, but Blackberry is known for being business friendly and businessmen will feel very comfortable using it.

4.Sony Tablet S
Sony has to be on top of the tablet world in the future, its hard to imagine any company competing against the Ipad, but the tablet competition has just began. We’re talking about the future and Sony will probably be around for a while so we predict that their innovation driven ideology will eventually lead them to the top of the tablet world.

5. Ipad
Well, the whole article we’ve been comparing tablets to the Ipad. There’s no argument that can convince us that the Ipad is not in the right path. With the budget that apple has, along with their designing genius we’ll hear from them for a while. Apple will continue to try being the company which is cool to have, they’re marketing is amazing and they’ve basically brainwashed us into loving their products so much that a Chinese dude sold his kidney to get an Ipad.

One of my favorite TED talks about technology is this one.
Clay Shirky is an amazing speaker, but what really strikes me about this TED talk is that it is already outdated (only 2 years after!)
