The new iPad 3 is arguably the best tablet on the market right now. With its powerful GPU, quad-core graphics processor, Retina Display, LTE and large battery, it comes as no surprise that a recent report suggests it makes up 1 in 15 tablets on the market already.
3 Android tablet alternatives to Apple’s New iPad
However the New iPad 3 isn’t for everyone and if you’re one of these folks, here are 3 alternative to the New iPad 3 that shouldn’t disappoint.
ASUS Transformer Prime: The only device on our list that can be called a next-generation tablet just like the New iPad, the Transformer Prime boasts a quad-core processor, 1080p HD video recording, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Amazon Kindle Fire: With a price tag of below $200, it is the cheapest tablet on the list and less than half the price of a base New iPad. While it packs just about every feature you expect from a tablet, it does have some shortcomings – no cameras, microphone, GPS, and location services.
Samsung Galaxy Note: While this device threads between being a tablet and a smartphone, it does prove that there is a big market for both a small tablet / huge phone, something that contradicts the late Steve Jobs’ statement. If you’re after a pocketable tablet that still provides a decent amount of real estate for viewing media then the Galaxy Note is a good choice. It also is the only tablet on the list that has calling capabilities.
