Now that Apple’s highly anticipated tablet is out and set to go on sale soon, inevitably the specs of the new iPad are up for comparison with rival tablets on the market. Samsung has already accepted the challenge and started fighting back, comparing the latest iPad specs with their new Android device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
According to the Android Community team, Samsung has come up with its own spec comparison chart, putting the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 next to the new iPad to highlight what they consider better.
Comparing specs, Samsung noted that its Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet can view two apps simultaneously, it can work with two apps side by side and it allows users to write as they would with pen and paper. It has precision photo and video editing, offers the ability to take notes in one app while seeing the content in another app, as well as the ability to copy and paste between two apps.
Needless to mention, Samsung says that Apple’s new iPad cannot do any of the things listed above. In addition, Samsung boasts that the Android-running Galaxy Note 10.1 is thinner and lighter compared to the new iPad.
This, however, is just Samsung’s view on things, and who could blame them for sticking up for their own product. Android enthusiasts will likely go for the Galaxy Note 10.1, while Apple fans will prefer the new iPad, regardless of Samsung’s spec comparison sheet. Apple’s new tablet has plenty to offer as well, starting with its high-resolution Retina display, quad-core graphics processor and 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
