The Tablet era has begun. Apple created this market space and 'need' through the launch of iPad. The nay-sayers and critics were initially suspicious about how iPad will fare in the market. But iPad has been a brilliant hit. But success breeds contempt! Competitors were quick to see the potential and began working on tablets. Samsung announced Galaxy Tab and touted it as iPad killer. Dell came up with it's own 5" beauty called Streak. Olive came up with OlivePad. The latter three are powered by Android and boasts a smaller screen size compared to iPad's 10 inch...It is very tough to not buy a tablet once you have experienced it either on the retail showroom or through your friends circle. Now, which one should you buy? Rather, which one will suit you? There are various factors to consider. Economic Times today came up with a really nice piece comparing the 4 tablets. We thought it would be beneficial to our beloved users (just in case the article slipped your eyes).
