Welcome to another utterly fabulous Good e-Reader Video! Today we look at two of the hottest tablet computers on the market, the recently launched Motorola Xoom with Android 3.0 and the Apple iPad which reigns supreme as the tablet to beat. How do these two measure up to practical day to day uses? We run these tablets side by side showing you some of the benefits and drawbacks.
First things first, we break down the hardware, specs, and what you need to know if you are thinking of purchasing either of these two devices. We show you how videos look via Youtube and some interesting facts we learned on the Xoom. Next we show you Angry Birds and how it looks on each unit and some standard gameplay. We also show off some of the default 3D games that come bundled with the Xoom Tablet. Next we break down content delivery systems, as well as how eBook reading looks on each of the tablets and the eBook ecosystem on each device. Finally we show you all sorts of interesting facts and you will be surprised on what tablet reigned victory here.
Stay tuned for our next Xoom video as we compare it to the iPad 2, due out March 11 2011! Also you can check out the hardware stats side by side HERE.
