Those looking to start their year right have a few options to consider when it comes to tech gadgets. Samsung and Google prove to have some of the best tech options around. Samsung has a range of tablet to offer including Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. While Google may not have released its Nexus 10 2 tablet, there are enough reports to suggest what people can expect from the upcoming device. So which one should be worth a New Year purchase?
Despite failed predictions on the release of the Google Nexus 10 2, the market continues to wait for the actual launch. Why? Google has been putting out a series of impressive tablets. The first and second generation Nexus 7 slates are great proofs of this. According to reports, second generation Nexus 10 will sport a 10.1-inch screen. It will also feature a superb Plane-to-Line Switching TFT touch-screen. The device will also reportedly come with an upgraded Gorilla Class coating, 16 million colors and 299ppi.
Google will highly likely include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and a 2.3GHz quad core Krait 400 processor according to analysts. The device will sport a 330 GPU graphics plus 3GB RAM. Given Google has not released a new Android OS, Nexus 10 2 will run on Android 4.4 KitKat.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 sports a lightweight design. It comes with 64GB storage expansion allowing users to store as many files as they can. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and features Samsung's TouchWiz Ul skin. Users will find the Smart Stay feature interesting as it switches the tablet to sleep mode is the person is not looking at it.
The device sports a TFT touchscreen, 16 million colors with 1280×800 pixels. Pixel density is at 149ppi. The first generation Google Nexus 10 has better resolution compared to the Galaxy Tab 3. If the first generation has better features already compared to the Tab, it may be safe to assume the second generation can be better. However, that remains uncertain until the actual release. Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 proves to be a good choice for those looking for a mid-range tablet.
