UPDATE: New iPad 4th Gen and iPad Mini comparison table updated. Added Galaxy Tab 7.7.
After the unveiling of the new iPad mini and 4th generation iPad, it is time for another round of comparison. We have compared the tablets with both the internal hardware as well as the exterior dimensions.
The new iPad mini comes with a slightly larger 7.9″ display that does 1024×768 resolution, which is the same resolution of its older iPad 2 of 9.7″. While that gives a higher pixel density of 163ppi (pixels per inch), it is behind the Nexus 7 of 216ppi due to its higher resolution of 1280×800. In terms of dimensions, the iPad mini is the thinnest and lightest of the lot at only 7.2mm thick and 308g heavy.
Moving on to the larger tablets, the new iPad in its 4th generation still holds the highest pixel density of 264ppi thanks to its higher than HD resolution of 2048×1536 pixels. As comparison, the closest rival in the form of ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity does a lower full HD resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. In terms of battery, the 9.7″ iPad is still the largest with a rated 10 hour battery life and as a result, it is also the heaviest in this comparison.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a more unique offering with a included S-Pen stylus, 2GB of RAM and higher camera resolution of 8MP for the rear and 2MP at the front. In terms of 3G SIM sizes, the Android tablets are using the regular Mini-SIM while Apple is the only contender that uses micro-SIM. For the new iPad mini, it uses the latest nano-SIM, similar to the iPhone 5.

Wipe that drool off your mouth, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is now available in Malaysia. Deemed by ASUS as “the world’s first Full HD Android tablet”, the Transformer Pad Infinity One is packed to the gills with tech including a 600 nit 10-inch full HD 1920×1200 Super IPS+ display strengthened with Gorilla Glass 2, a 1.6 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 1GB RAM and 12-core GPU.
There’s also a micro SD card slot that takes in cards up to 32GB in capacity, a 1080p video capable f/2.2 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera and a micro HDMI port, all this is packed in a slender body that’s just 8.5mm thick finished in that uber sleek spun metal design.
The Transformer Pad Infinity comes in two variants – 64GB and 32GB. Both are WiFi only and there’s no word on whether ASUS will bring in the 3G version. The 64GB retails for RM2,599 and is available now, the 32GB (RRP RM2,199) will be available in August. The price includes the ASUS Mobile Dock that packs a full-featured QWERTY keyboard and additional battery.

The Transformer Pad Infinity is ASUS’ new flagship tablet and the company doesn’t leave any stone unturned to ensure that its latest tablet is worthy of being called its greatest. And judging by the amazing detail presented in this new video series, you’ll agree that ASUS has put a great deal of thought in developing the Transformer Pad Infinity.
From its full 1920×1200 Full HD IPS display that’s been specifically developed to pack in as much pixels as possible without sacrificing brightness and performance, to the aircraft quality forged aluminium body and nano-moulded plastics that bond at the nano level to the aluminium, the videos create the impression that the Transformer Pad Infinity as one of the most, if not the most desirable tablet you can buy.
And if the rumoured Nexus Tablet that is said to be developed by ASUS, is given the same care and attention as the Transformer Pad Infinity, its reasonable to conceive that you will be seeing more ASUS tablets in the hands of users than you’re used too.

When the new iPad was revealed, Samsung had thrown pot shots by having a comparison of their own. Obviously it wasn’t that fair as it left out other aspects of the hardware. To find out which is better on paper, we have laid down the details on a comparison table above.
In terms of display, the new iPad is much superior with its higher 2048×1536 resolution that gives a density of 264ppi. While it is no way near its iPhone 4 Retina display density, it trumps even the latest crop of HD Android tablets of 224-226 ppi. The processor of the new iPad 2 is still running dual-core but comes with an improved quad core GPU and double the amount of RAM compared to the outgoing model.
While the new iPad is thicker by 0.6mm, the battery capacity is tremendously increased to 42.5 Wh which is nearly double of the iPad 2’s 25 Wh. That’s approximately 11,666mAh which is heaps more than most tablets in the market right now. Having to support 4G LTE, battery life is definitely a concern and it is good to know that the new iPad has bumped up the battery capacity to maintain its 10 hour battery life. However in terms of weight, the new iPad seems to be the heaviest among the lot.
With current line up, the new iPad with its high resolution screen is looking like hot choice right now but perhaps not for long. Earlier, it is rumoured that Samsung is working on a 11.6″ tablet that would be powered by its 2GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor. The new Exynos is capable of pushing 2560×1600 display resolution which is higher the new iPad. Samsung is better known for developing new models rapidly and their recent abstinence from churning out high end models is probably a strategic move to see what their competitors are up to. Last year, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was redesigned after the iPad 2 was introduced.
2011 was a big year for Android tablets but the iPad still manages to maintain its dominant spot for tablets. For 2012, it is no longer a battle between iOS and Android, as Microsoft’s Windows 8 tablet is expected to shake things up. The early previews have created some excitement and it is interesting to see if the final product is able to live up to its expectation.

ASUS has introduced its high end tablet, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity 700 series. Back at CES, this was better known as the ASUS Transformer Prime TF700 which comes with a full HD display.
At MWC 2012, ASUS has refreshed the device with a new name and upgraded specs. There are 2 versions – WiFi only which runs on Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad core processor at 1.6GHz and the LTE version which runs on dual core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. For the LTE version, this marks the first LTE tablet with Full HD display and also the first Cortex A15 class processor to be fitted on a tablet.
The full HD screen is of Super IPS+ variety which has a brightness of 600 nits. The design hasn’t change much from the original Transformer Prime but now there’s a noticable rubber/plastic strip at the top which could probably improve signal reception. Overall it still retains the brushed aluminium finish and has a slim profile of just 8.5mm. It still retains the 8MP f/2.2 camera at the back and comes with a 2MP camera at the front.
