Chart: Motorola XOOM vs. LG Optimus Pad vs. Samsung Tab 10.1 vs. HTC Flyer

Mobile World Congress introduced us to 3 brand spankin’ new Android tablets to battle it out with the Motorola XOOM for top dog in 2011.  We saw the LG Optimus Pad (G-Slate), the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and most recently, the HTC Flyer.  All of them look like incredible products that come off as being very similar, but once you dig down deep, you realize they all have tweaks here or there that make them slightly different.  The XOOM is the first and on Verizon’s 4G network, the LG is all about 3D,  the new Galaxy Tab is lightweight and stylish, and the Flyer took a different 7″ approach, but has a new Scribe technology.

Our comparison chart is after the break.  

*Note 1* – The HTC Flyer will be upgraded to Honeycomb at some point, but it will launch with Gingerbread.
*Note 2* – Apologies for missing fields; we used what the companies have made available.
*Note 3* – XOOM release date is for the U.S.  All others are non-U.S. at this time.

    I preordered it two months ago and now JR.com is telling me not in stock? WTF!

    I hope the Android Tablet will be a good alternative to the iPad because it is so expensive for a small entertainment device. The competition can push the price down.

    Man, I was all about the xoom, but the flyer IS portable. 7″ fits in your pocket, didn’t realize the xoom was 10. If I need a bag too carry it, it’ll be my quad vaio with 8g’s, 64-bit 7 pro, and FULL SIZE 1080p hdmi out. Not a giant phone without the phone. Then again, my D- X hasn’t let me down. 8m camera, everything I do but surf, is better on this than an $800 mid-size pc I’d NEVER take out of the car after a week.

    Man, I really like the look and size of the Galaxy tab, but it has not connectivity options and no expandability options. In any case, if I got a tablet it would probably be at the end of the year and by that time they’ll be quad cores.
