Google Currents iPad 2 Review

Google Currents iPad 2 Review

This week Google Currents was released, a project made for the two biggest mobile platforms on the planet by Google in collaboration with a variety of launch partners including your favorite tech and gadget blog SlashGear - what we've got for you here is a closer look at the iPad version of this application.

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.

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

There's so very much to say about a couple of devices when you're comparing them, especially two titans like the iPad 2 and the Asus Transformer Prime, but what we're going to do here is get down to some basics - namely some benchmark tests that work just as well on both iOS and Android - so that we can have a clear view of how the two work in relation to one another. We've got a few tests lined up here, first of all SunSpider, an internet browser-based JavaScript benchmark which tests how well your internet is going to work based on the machine more than your connection. Next there's Rightware's BrowserMark, another test that sits in the internet browser. Finally there's GLBenchmark 2.1 which is one of the only apps that works on both iOS and Android outside of the browser, and frames per second across the screen is what it works with.

Market researchers Nielsen claim Apple's iPad is the most coveted gadget, rating the highest for buying-interest over the next six months in both the 6-12 and 13+ brackets. Non-Apple tablets, meanwhile, languish behind in fifth place.

iPad 2 price slash incoming insists analyst

Apple's iPad is on the cusp of a price cut, analysts are predicting, to counter public perception that the iOS tablet is an expensive option in the slate marketplace. Low-cost rivals such as the $250 B&N NOOK Tablet as well as deeply discounted - and considerably less successful - models like the HP TouchPad and BlackBerry PlayBook are a sign of "a more realistic pricing approach" Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope reckons, MSNBC reports, warning clients to expect "near-term demand challenges" as consumers grow wary.
