The Android 3.0 Honeycomb is ready for the run after its recent release; it is soon going to march into the voraciously competitive tablets market led by none other than the mighty iPad. The rivalry between the apple veteran and Google’s new kid on the block will be massive we believe.
To match up to the hoity iPad, the Honeycomb will have to show off some solid features. Some details of the Android 3.0 device are tabbed browsing, a new camera interface, improved multitasking and multi pane application views.
Google to clash with the titan will have to wow the consumers. Matching upto the iPad is just isn’t enough.
Here’s looking at some must haves which could lead to the Honeycomb become as celebrated as the iPad is-
The iPad boasts of a very simple user interface, where the easy iPhone interface has been incorporated into the iPad. The Honeycomb in comparison shall have no hardware buttons; a person will be able to customize his/her homepage to add different widgets and shortcuts- like a desktop page. Though this could be an advantage, on another look it may cause hotchpotch too. Android will have to ensure that it cashes on this feature.
The Android if has the flash will be able to beat Apple very easily, as the iPad still does not have the facility to play video unless you are either on the web or surfing an app on App store. The lack of flash in the iPad could become a boon for the Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
The Android is going to have a 10 inch screen with 2 cameras- front and rear facing cameras which the iPad does not have, though the iPad 2 may too have 2 cameras but it is still not in the market. So the Android definitely has an edge over it.
The iPad also lacks luster in terms of its file system where one can connect one’s iPad via USB, but the iTunes need to be accessed before adding any applications. The Android tablet if incorporates a native file manager could gain a slight upper hand over the ever so popular iPad.
Those who call the iPad perfect need to check as there are a lot of apps on the iPad which are very crash friendly. The reason for the crashes is unknown, what to blame- the iOS software, hardware constraints or just poor third part app design. Whatever the problem is its troublesome of course. The Honeycomb is bringing in dual core processors they too combat the iPad competition will need to have a faster and a more dynamic RAM, than the iPad.
All the speculation shall end in the coming months, where the world will be witness to the most interesting battle between 2 honchos the iPad and the much awaited Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
