iPad2 vs Motorola Xoom vs Galaxy Tab2 comparison

With the announcement of the iPad2 yesterday we thought it would be a good idea to check out how the iPad 2 fairs up against the competition. So we've pulled the tech specs of the iPad2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the Motorola Xoom.

*Currently unconfirmed but a fair assumption based on specs given online

It's clear to us that whilst the iPad 2 might well be the most anticipated device of 2011 but it's got it all to do again the other big 2 releases of the year so far.  Clearly, from the table above both the Android tablets have the bigger screens, better resolutions, more RAM and seemingly more features, including some features we haven't even listed.  There's no doubt the hardcore Apple fans will be pleased at the improvements the iPad 2 brings but perhaps this shows a turning tide in the tablet battle.

It's well worth pointing out some of the iPad 2 specs are just guesstimates as Apple are notoriously bad at publishing tech specs, moreover, what they call 'nitty gritty' which could leave us thinking these specs haven't been published due to the contrast of specs in the battle of the tablets.
