Google Nexus Takes on Apple iPad
Google has recently announced that it will release its own Tablet and rate it under the same price range as the Apple iPad so as to establish a competitive field in the tech market against the latter’s dominating power over the tech industry.
According to the executive chairman and chief executive officer Eric Schmidt, their device will be of the highest quality, aside from that, no other design specs regarding it has been released, as he also mentioned that vital information surrounding the project would still be under wraps until its release, and the ambiguity behind it has already served as an effective form of marketing because of the apparent “mystique” behind it which has peaked the curiosity of Tablet users and otherwise.
Apart from the very little information given, it is said that it would be released on mid-2012 and will run on various Google platforms like Android; specifically the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb and even the 2.3 Gingerbread. Critics deem the Android OS as a cleaner alternative compared to the iOS.
If Google is indeed trying to catch up with Apple in the technological highway with their Tablet, then it will probably need to cover some serious mileage if it is ever going to outclass all of the other powerful competitors like Samsung Galaxy Tab, BlackBerry PlayBook, Cisco Cius and finally the HP Slate 500.
However, if it fails to even match up to the high standard that Apple has established for itself, then it will most likely fall under the category of those who tried valiantly, but failed miserably to settle an even tenure against the iPad like the Hewlett-Packard TouchPad, Dell Streak 5, Microsoft Courier and finally the JooJoo (yes, it is actually called that). Still, Google states that it will undoubtedly develop a product that will not only prove formidable to the iPad, but will also make a name for itself in the tech world along with all of the other big names.
