Apple iPad 2, no doubt, is the king of all the Tablets in the present market. However, there are a few other tablets that are raising their significance with additional features that Apple iPad 2 doesn’t have. Some of them are…
  1. Motorola Xoom : A 10.1″ tablet that runs on Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) operating system is the top competitor of iPad 2. With Nividia Tegrs 2 duo-core 1GHz processor, it facilitates the user with fast accessing of applications. Motorola Xoom has two camera, front (2MP) and Rear (5MP). The most attracting feature is that, unlike iPad and iPad 2, Xoom supports SD Card which is to be appreciated. It costs around $799.

  2. Samsung TX100 : Samsung, which is well known for its android mobiles, is the next competitor of iPad 2. Samsung has launched a new 10.1″ tablet “TX100″ with QWERTY keyboard which slides out from bottom (you don’t need to buy an extra keyboard case like with iPad 2). Interestingly, the TX100 is powered by Windows 7 Phone OS. The Samsung TX 100 comes at an affordable price of $700 (single version)
