Here is the day we've been waiting for. The iPad finally gets a successor to compete with the new generation of Android tablets that are bursting onto the scene. The new iPad has cameras, a dual-core processor, and more, but how does it compare to the Adam?
Another mystery represented to us today was the lack of information about the RAM. The first gen iPad has 256MB of it, and it reported that the iPad 2 is either the same or double. Any way you slice it, the Adam has more RAM at 1GB. That may not matter when you consider the frugality of iOS.
Somehow, the iPad managed to pack everything into a shell that is only 8.xmm thick. The iPad flatout wins in the size department, but the curve on the Adam is still a nice grip. The speaker of the iPad has moved to the back of the device. The Adam's speaker is practically unbeatable with its superb sound and stereo arrangement.
The differences in the OS's is completely a matter of opinion. It being an opinion, I will let you decide which one is better. The software is what truly defines a tablet, and Eden will get better with time. One thing the iPad has over the Adam is popularity. Apple has the ability to produce that Notion Ink will likely never have.
