Chart: iPad 2 vs. Motorola XOOM vs. LG G-Slate vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

After comparing the original iPad to the Motorola XOOM a few weeks back, we took a lot of heat on how “unfair” it was to do that to a product that was almost a year old.  The Apple enthusiasts came in waves and the cries for “Just wait for the iPad2!” rang out through the night.  Well peeps, here is your comparison to the newly announced iPad 2…nothing groundbreaking at all here.  Straight from their spec sheets.

Cheaper price and a thinner body.  That’s it.

We’ve already seen dual-cameras, dual-core processors and HD recording.  What we aren’t seeing on this new product though, is 1080p on-device playback, Flash support (hah!), 4G capabilities, or expandable storage.  And what’s up with that giant bezel?

*Note* – HD playback on the XOOM is now questionable.  Motodev site lists it as “Max” 1080p, but the regular consumer XOOM page says just 720p.

    Christ, you Android fanboys are just as annoying as the Apple ones.

    It’s like watching a Harvard vs. Yale debate. Get over it – and yourselves.

    Maybe i am missing something but how can a screen of 1280×800 play 1080p?

    I feel as if I can’t shut up about this stupid chart but it is really irritating.I have been reading DL for over a year now and have frequented this site multiple times a day…. every day.

    I feel like Kellex really let us down and has been doing this for a few weeks now. This chart is a pure example of slanted journalism and shows serious immaturity from the writer. The only interesting blog is the person who tells it the way it really is, if I want an extremely bias opinion I will read the fanboy’s in the comments.

    Kellex, you only added lines for items in which the Android tablets beat the iPad2. According to this chart everything is better about the Android Tabs than the iPad2…. but realistically that is not the case.

    You failed to add “Rated Battery Life”…. which the iPad2 dominates, “Thickness” which the iPad2 wins by a significant margin, “Number of Tablet Specific Apps” which makes Honeycomb look like a complete joke (thanks Google) and you didn’t even try to do a serious price comparison…. a real chart would list all of the options because that is honestly what it boils down to….. choices, How about “Carrier Choices” iPad2 wins. Your flash support is misleading (as pointed out by lots of commenters) MicroSD is also wrong because the slot is not yet active on the XOOM.

    Bottom line, you slanted this horribly and you could have really used this opportunity to call out Google and Motorola for doing a poor job in creating a real iPad competitor. Please understand I love this site…. I just want it to maintain some credibility and make a real impact on the Droid world.

    Thanks.

      of course Kellex would filter out all the actual facts! he will do anything to make Android look better. only thing that would justify his action is if was getting paid to do so, if not, then wow! what’s the deal with hatred for Apple?

      • Afrank_86

        I own a crap load of apple stuff and still think that the apple pad sucks. it is so closed up you cant do anything with it. yes they are all good but you have to look at the extra stuff you can do with the other ones. apple doesn’t have the miniSD port because they want you to buy the new pad that will come out in like a month that has more storage. You cant root or get into anything because they are so closed up. if you want an ip*d at a cheaper price buy a ip*d touch. That is all the new pads are. everyone will try to back up anything they love. I have both and look at both sides of it.

        • Afrank_86

          oh and another thing. it sucks when you think you have full range of looking at websites and you cant get to it because it doesn’t support flash. almost every website has flash. they lost out big time there!!

    • http://twitter.com/SciJohn SciJohn

      Oh yeah. You also forgot whiteness of bezel and magnetic case compatiblity.
      Melting point, specific gravity and floatbility would be good. ;)

      • Brandonv Gillis

        So rated battery life, carrier choices, available models, number of apps and other things are irrelevant?

        Your comment is ridiculous.

  • ChuBone

    If these specs are accurate… Well then the Xoom is it. Nothing to it.
    I assume people want to get the most for their dollar. Compatibility plays are part in that as well.
    If you have a mac, Id probably go with the iPad for that reason. If your a free spirit, then get the most for your money. Either way porn will probably look the same in either device since the clips are usually low quality.

  • http://twitter.com/KsbjA KsbjA

    Actually, iPad 2 has three storage capacities: 16, 32 and 64 gigabytes.

  • Mrborgs

    The Flash line is misleading – as of right now no tablet supports Flash – Xoom released without it and claim it will come later – we will see

  • Elhefe

    If you are going to throw in a row for Flash support, then there should be a row for # of apps available. All of a sudden the comparison becomes more interesting. Apps vs Flash – I’ll take Apps anytime.

  • Djstar2k2

    you know what Jay Z said it best ‘men lie,women lie numbers dont” so icap pad 2 is gonna sell more than xoom because of price regardless of specs so mr moto if your aim is to win not just compete slash 300 off the xoom

    • ViggS

      That’s not necessarily the truth, its probably just because there is a bigger cult following then with Android.

      • Djstar2k2

        yes you are correct but 300 dollar price difference is a major factor in selling units.

        • ViggS

          Not sure where you got that from…

    it’s good that apple had a head start… they’ll need it to stay relevant.

  • Gustavo

    Ha, the more i look at the chart the dumber it gets. Don’t tell us the battery size, tell us the run time. That’s what matters.

  • Gustavo

    They also didnt list the compass as a sensor on the iPad.

  • Jkyrlach

    why is archos not listed?

  • Grean

    What about thickness? Why was not in the chart?

  • Gustavo

    weird that the stats for xoom on device video playback say 1080p but the screen only supports up to 1280×800…
    1080p is 1920×1080. This is physically impossible.

  • Piquedram

    the xoom plays 1080p to an EXTERNAL screen, using its HDMI port. On its own screen 720p would be the max.

    • Gustavo

      Correct, but the chart says “on device”.
      Not possible

    • Gustavo

      Correct, but the chart says “on device”.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bofh69 Sebastian Andersson

    The iPad2 will have HDMI output (and I think they said 1080 out) via a cable/adapter, so “None” is perhaps wrong in the iPad2 entry for extra ports?

    iPad2 with 3G also has a GPS.
    All versions have a digital compass.
    The battery is “25-watt-hour” which slightly more relevant than “mAh”, but still quite useless when comparing products.

  • Bezel Patrol

    What’s up with the “And what’s up with that giant bezel?” comment? All these devices have a proportionate bezel

  • Peter

    No mention of thickness, or battery life. Yea, I get it. Skew the facts.

    Might be helpful to mention native 3rd party apps too.

  • Danieljroot

    I think Battery needs to be measured in hours, or at least add an ‘Average Battery Life’. A 6800 mAh battery in a device that slurps it down in 3 hours isn’t really that impressive.

  • http://twitter.com/seanjmcmahon Sean McMahon

    This is awesome! I can’t wait to get my iPad 2!

  • Brandonv Gillis

    Here is the truth about the situation.

    $799 is simply too much money for a tablet. Tablets are just an entertainment accessory…. contrary to what Motorola thinks, tablets are not a necessity….. NOBODY sees it as absolutely can’t live without.

    $499 is reasonable for a simple toy, A $799 tablet will sit on the shelf because people can’t make themselves fork over that much money for something they don’t “need”

    All of the Android fanboys will bash me but 1 year from now the $499 iPad will have sold millions and the XOOM might sell 500,000 if they are lucky.

    • Anonymous

      It’s funny to me that you say the “truth” about the situation is that $800 is too much money for tablet. For whom is it too much? You? Ok then. Because it’s definitely not me. Your opinion doesn’t apply for everyone, just because $800 is too much for you to spend on a “toy” doesn’t mean it’s too much for everyone. Nothing against you personally, I just had to get that off my chest. A lot of people complain about the price of this tablet and it’s not because it’s an unfair price but because it’s one that “they” don’t want (or can’t afford) to pay.

      • Brandonv Gillis

        First, its not too much for me. I can afford whatever tablet I want.

        I was saying it is too expensive to attract every day joe. If people thought a tablet was really a necessity they would be willing to pay $800. But they don’t.

        Most people could part with. $500 for a tablet. And some who see a real need will be willing to pay a bit more. But the majority will buy the less expensive one.

        Mark my words and remember this a year from now… the $500. iPad 2 will outsell the xoom 10:1

        • Anonymous

          Well just because it’s not a necessity doesn’t mean people aren’t willing to pay $800 for it. There is no need to “mark your words” everyone knows the iPad will sell more than the Xoom. (Or any other android tablet for that matter)

          • Brandonv Gillis

            That’s the point. iOS is NOT better than Android!

            iPad will definitely sell more because Apple has beat everyone to the market and has more name recognition….. but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

            Motorola has botched the XOOM so badly that it will not even be able to compete….. Android could definitely capture some market share if it was done correctly (just like the smartphone market) but when you price your cheapest tablet at $300 more than the product that holds 90% of the market share…. you are screwing yourself.

            My point is that Motorola screwed the pooch and the XOOM is a joke. Not the hardware, not the OS, it’s is just a joke because it will NEVER compete with iPad 2.

            This is whyt he comparison that Kellex is putting up there is idiotic.

            Thanks for understanding.

          • Anonymous

            The fact that Motorola has botched the Xoom is your personal opinion I’m typing this response from one right now and I think it’s a great device. As far as your price comparison is concerned you’ve got it all messed up. It isn’t fair to compare the $800 3g/4g 32gb Xoom to the $500 wifi only 16gb ipad. If you want to compare apples to apples (no pun intended) then compare the 3g (with no upgrade to 4g) 32gb ipad to the Xoom and you’ll see the different isn’t $300 at all. And if you ask me and other sensible minded people the $70 difference is justified. In my opinion as far as this subject is concerned, you get what you pay for.

          • Brandonv Gillis

            It is not just my opinion that the XOOM was botched. It is indeed a fact.

            Motorola launched the XOOM with most of its “features” disabled. How can it be considered good business to put out a product that has a micro-sd slot that is disabled? or what about the fact that it has to be sent back to Motorola to enable the 4g? or the fact that it launched without flash, which was to be one of its biggest selling points. These things are completely idiotic, say what you want but it was ridiculous that they launched a product with key features disabled.

            If Apple put out an iPad with a micro-sd slot disabled, an Operating System that was clearly rushed (due to the lack of available apps) and then asked their cutomers to mail them back in to enable 4g…. everyone on here would call them idiots.

            About the price, the fact that Motorola does not even provide the option for a $500 tablet shows an arrogance and misunderstanding of the market for these “toys” You absolutely cannot price your only available option at 37% higher than the product with literally ALL of the market at this point.

            Botched.

          • Anonymous

            While I agree with you that the Xoom was rushed and does has “some” features missing I wouldn’t say “most”. First of all the lack of flash support is not Motorola’s fault, it’s Adobe’s. And personally “I” along with everyone else who purchased the Xoom would rather have it hand now and wait for Adobe to release an updated version of flash than have not have it right now. As far as calling it botched because it was not launched with all the it’s possible features available at launch is stretch. Mainly because if I remember correct didn’t Apple launch the original iphone without support for something as simple as copy and paste? Also so did Microsoft with WP7. So as far as launching a product without certain features and upgrading it later is concerned Moto was not the first and won’t be the last to do it. And they should have released it with sd card but it’s not like they tried to cover it up, it has been common knowledge for a very long time that it’s lacking that feature but it’s up to consumer to decided whether that’s a deal breaker or not. If you don’t like it, then don’t buy it, but for me and the countless other people who are happy with this device I can live with the 32gb I have until I get sd card support. And again if you don’t want to send your tablet back to moto to get upgraded to 4g then “don’t buy the 3g” wait until the 4g device is ready and purchase that. It all boils down to the fact that it’s up to the buyer whether or not the Xoom is right for them. If it isn’t right for then don’t buy it. You know what your getting before you fork over the cash. And lastly, you have to be kidding me if you think to os version that the original iPad launched with was ready for a tablet. All Apple did was enlarge their phone os, at least google took the high road and made an os specifically for tablets instead of leaving us with froyo or gingerbread. And who’s fault do you think it is that honeycomb doesn’t have as many apps as iOS? Moto’s? No. Google’s? No. The dev’s are the ones who make the apps and I can guarantee you that in a year from now Android will have as many or more tablet apps than iOS. But according to you we should all have to wait until then before we get to play with our $800 “toy”.

            Oh and I almost forgot about the price issue. I agree with you when you say that they should not have made this their only entry into the tablet battle. That is just not the smartest business decision, but from where i’m sitting (typing on my Xoom at this very moment) the release was far from botched.

        • Brendan M

          If someone’s hedging at $800 for a tablet, I’d imagine they’d hedge for one priced at $700, $600, $500 [since when did $500 become pocket change to the average joe?]

          • Brandonv Gillis

            The people clearly spoke last year with the overwhelming difference in sales between the $500 iPad and all of the other models.

            They said:

            We would rather pay less and don’t mind having only 16gb of memory and no 3g.

            People clearly decided $500 was easier to part with than anything more.

    Last time I checked, Flash wasn’t on the Xoom. They can say ‘It’s coming soon!” all day long, but it doesn’t matter if it’s not here right now. (Hah!)

  • Crc_error

    Ok. So we are all in agreement. Blackberry Tablet for the Win!!!!!

  • Headbanger51

    I realize I’m probably going to get ripped for “drinking the kool-aid,” but at the same time, I feel like sometimes the Android community is “drinking the kool-aid,” and so many refuse to acknowledge a decent device. I feel like Apple could cure cancer and people on this site and others would rather die.
    The unveiling and release of the Xoom has been so absolutely HORRIBLY mismanaged and disheartening that I think this might have been the last straw. You have a Google operating system on a Motorola device being sold by Verizon. Google doesn’t release Honeycomb in advance so there are hardly any apps for it on release. To say that there are bugs with Honeycomb might be an understatement but they’ll get worked out eventually, even though they should have been worked out before the release. Moto, to their credit, didn’t tamper with Honeycomb at all. Don’t expect that to last. And they don’t release a wifi only version. Instead, they sell a wicked expensive device and try to sucker you in by forcing you to sign a contract with Verizon that’ll have you paying way more over the long haul. Then, for reasons unknown, they begin to roll out a wifi only version…IN THE UK. With not even a mention of the US. And it still looks like it’ll cost way more than the ipad2. It’s just one clusterf&ck after another. A third grader could have handled this more efficiently. For whatever drawbacks Apple and iOS might have, I’m beginning to be convinced that they’re finally outweighing the best that everyone else can release, because everyone else is continually playing catch up while Moto and Verizon keep stumbling over each other. Android could absolutely bury Apple, if someone would just get their act together. But no one does. And watching the iOS unveiling yesterday, I saw a company with its act together. They might just have a new customer.

But apple just knows how to connect with people and make you want something. They just show off the product sooo damn well.

    I hope by the time the XOOM is released here in sydney, it’ll be bit cheaper so to compete with the IPad2

  • Anonymous

    Just like I thought, the iPad 2′s specs aren’t the greatest (was really hoping for that unreasonably high res screen but it was pretty obvious that would a battery and GPU killer) but they are good enough where it doesn’t really matter. Can’t play 1080p on the device? Who cares, the screen isn’t even high enough to display it and most download content is 720p anyway. 3D? LOL. 3G is a semi big issue depending where you are (apparently a lot of DL readers are in/near LTE areas while poor old me in Hampton Roads, VA isn’t) but for most people LTE isn’t available. And you seriously put battery size over the actual run time? Seriously? The Xoom has phenomenal battery life and hopefully the G slate and Tab 10.1 will as well, but the iPad is still at least equal to if not greater than the competition when battery life is concerned.

    Love that the pricing stayed the same on the iPad meaning that a Wi-Fi Xoom (that is coming to the States, don’t live in Europe) is all the more needed.

    That being said I still want the Xoom. I don’t mind that it is bigger and heavier (I love my brick of a DROID after all), I love the construction and design, I love the look and feel of Honeycomb, and I like Android overall more than iOS which is still ugly and childish looking to me. I don’t even mind the crashing I’ve seen in reviews, that should be fixed by updated apps and maybe a Honeycomb update. What I do mind is that price. The specs are now close enough where the only definitive thing Motorola can point to is that LTE upgrade, and I really don’t think most people are going to buy that as an excuse to charge more. Especially since it is seeming that only new Qualcom phones will only be getting the big two apps, Hulu Plus and Netflix legitimately. The app will likely not require the built in DRM (meaning that a ripped apk should be easy to get) so it may be as huge of an issue, but for normal people it will be. And we still don’t have an actual release date for it or anything.

    I don’t have the money for either tablet now so I’m still waiting. Hopefully Motorola will announce some U.S. details on that Wi-Fi Xoom soon. Otherwise it will be a real hard choice for me, and some of the benefits of the iPad (better apps, lower priced, generally smoother operation) will outweigh the disadvantages (less RAM, lower resolution screen, ugly and childish iOS scaled up from a phone, iTunes required)

    I will mos def get the Xoom over the *pad, and let everyone who asks me the Xoom is better.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but Xoom doesn’t have flash (yet), or 4g (yet), or microSD support (yet). And while iPad2 doesn’t have a port for HDMI, it does support it via adapter.

    • Treknologist

      You’re correct, the Xoom currently does not have Flash, 4G, or active microSD support; however, those are coming. None of those are EVER coming to the iPad 2. I don’t know about you but I’ll take “coming soon” over “coming never” any day.

  • Djstar2k2

    while agree that the icrap pad 2 (1.5) or wth ever is nothing new the magic man will out sell the xoom simply cuz of brand recognition and PRICE. lets been honest while xoom is far more advance 300 bucks is a major motivator. its seems stevo wants to double his money while mr moto wants to triple. while i want get the icrap pad that damn 300 buck difference would get me too. lets face it an icrap phone and a high end android phone both priced at 200 the decision is easy but 300 dollar gap wow

    • http://twitter.com/BiGGiE_Q Biggie Quan

      If you want to compare oranges to apples (teehee) you are paying $300 less for LESS things. it’s the 16gb wifi only ipad2 that is $499, not the 32gb 3G/wifi version which is what the Xoom offers. When the Xoom wifi only edition comes out I’m sure it won’t be priced at $799

      I agree with you DJ. Unfortunately, there is no logic in mob mentality. Steve Jobs is a genius. He convinced 15 million people to buy something they didn’t even know they “needed” until he told them they did. Ya gotta give him credit for that.

      probably in line with the 32gb 3G ipad sales. Nothing special, but good enough

  • Johnnstl

    Just a couple of things – have any of the Android fan boys actually looked at iPad specs? You tout the expandable SD card slot as adding up to another 32 GB of storage (which will be slower than your standard flash memory) while the iPad can be had with up to 64 GB of storage built in!

    I do agree however that lack of 4G is a misstep.

    Oh, and stop bragging on the Flash support – not that big of a deal.

      the expandable storage goes to 128gb, find me an i*ad with that!
      Also, I don’t know if you know this, but flash is on 95% of PC’s worldwide. People like flash. They use it. Its versatile and portable and not going anywhere. Yeah Its a big deal.

        flash is a big deal to people because it’s a selling point over the apple products. in reality, flash is actually a pain in the ass. i dont want pop ups on my tablet, thats retarded.

          you don’t get pop ups in android… if you are using the stock browser you just set add-ons so that you have to tap them to start. No ads, just flash when you want it.

          no, you’re retarded. flash has nothing to do with popup ads, popup ads are created with javascript. there might be flash content in there but that’s not flash’s fault just like malicious popups aren’t the fault of the person who created javascript. that’s like saying we should hate pen manufacturers because someone drew a picture of something offensive once.

        People like flash or people have no choice but to use flash?

      And the 64GB costs $30 more than the XOOM without a contract. And it cannot be upgraded for free or otherwise to 4G. And it will cost you $39 to get HDMI out.

    I will repeat what Apple has said earlier at the conference:

    2010: Year of the iPad.

    2011: Year of the copycats!

    Once again, Apple delivered first official launch of the tablet in the market and everyone else followed the footsteps.

    In any case and more importantly, iOS slowly but steadily improves over time, Android is just continuous trial and error. Remember this people!

      There were android tablets out long before the ipad so nice try but no…

      • HolyGrail

        Please enlighten us. What android tablets are those? What were they called?

        Sindeslroyer? Can you reply to HolyGrail’s q?

        Regardless, Apple’s iPad hit the market as the first tablet and was a game changer for all the copycats out there. Face the facts, like it or not!
