ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, side by side gaming

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, side by side gaming

One of the most surprising aspects of our hands-on series with the ASUS Transformer Prime thus far has been the single benchmark in which the iPad 2 did better graphically than this quad-core powerhouse, as seen in our first comparison between the two - but check out a couple of videos that should very well convince you that there's no perfect clarity in a set of benchmarks performed on machines with two very different sets of innards.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Review

AT&T and Samsung have brought forth a tablet that adds to their set of sleek Android-based slates, this one the first to work with the carrier's 4G LTE network. Inside you'll find the rather powerful 1.5Ghz Qualcomm MSM8660 dual-core processor, Samsung's custom user interface TouchWiz UX made specifically for tablets, and either 16 or 32GB or internal storage. You can take 3 megapixel photos and 720p videos with the back-facing camera, slightly less impressive media with the front-facing 2 megapixel camera. As this tablet is thin, so is it speedy, and as there are now more than four different models of tablet running Android from Samsung on the market today, surely they've gotten the formula correct enough to warrant such an array by now - wouldn't you say?
