Apple iPad 2 on Verizon Wireless

I know we do a ton of Android stuff on this site so I thought it might be a good idea to write about Apple for a bit. I was able to get my hands on the the Apple iPad 2 on VZW 3G and a Motorola Xoom 3G to do a mini dog fight.

Battery

This is always a concern for any device in the market, can it fulfill all of my daily needs on one charge? Well the Xoom did a darn good job but didn’t quite make it to the end of the day. However the iPad 2 did make it through not one one day but 75% of my second one as well.

Speed

I dont really need to go ove this they are both CRAZY fast at everything. The Xoom has the beautiful single warehoused Tegra 2 and the iPad 2 has a similar single warehoused A5 (cough…Samsung) dual core chip. I say single warehoused cause these are no true dual core processors. A true dual core would be a dual warehoused chip allowing for two channels from memory to core. This has been one of the reasons I have held off on getting a “Dual Core” tablet.

Feel

The Motorola Xoom reminds me a Abrams Tank and the iPad 2 reminds me of a Maserati (Known for being beautiful but not durable, they fall apart easily). The iPad scared the crap out of me, I kept thinking I was going to crack the screen or that it wasent safe in my bag, maybe I would feel differently if I was to get a rubberized case for it.

This all just reminded me of this song (Android is the woman and iOS the man):
