Hands-on With the iPad Alternatives On Display at IFA

Barence writes “This week’s IFA show has seen a flurry of Android-based alternatives to the iPad emerge from leading manufacturers. The Samsung Galaxy Tab made a strong first impression on PC Pro’s reviewer. The 7-inch tablet’s TFT screen ‘beams forth with rich, saturated colours and wide, wide viewing angles,’ the device is capable of Full HD playback and the TouchWiz UI is ‘clearly intended to draw customers away from the iFamily.’ Elsewhere, ViewSonic has launched a pair of 7-inch and 10-inch tablets, the larger of which dual boots into either Android or Windows 7. ‘Our first moments with Windows 7 were surprisingly painless, too: we expected the Atom processor and 1GB of memory to be horrendously sluggish, but it wasn’t the case,’ PC Pro reports. Finally, Toshiba’s 10.1in Folio 100 marries Android 2.2 with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform to deliver ‘mighty graphics crunching power.’ The build quality left a little to desire, though. ‘The 14mm thick chassis feels lightweight, and even relatively gentle twisting motions left the Folio’s plastic body creaking under the stress.’”
