Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9,which one is better?  tablet pc

While we don't want to rain on Samsung's proverbial parade by making constant comparisons to the iPad Mini, the fact is that Apple's 7.9-incher is the Galaxy Note 8.0's main competition.Other devices like the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD will be taken into account by those consumers who are clued up enough to realise Apple isn't the sole maker of Flytouch 10 tablet. But with even the Cupertino option coming in cheaper - something almost totally unheard of - this is going to be one tough fight.
At least it offers good viewing angles - so, if you like to look at your Galaxy Note 8.0 from the seat next door as someone else uses it, you'll be fine. But try using it outdoors in the sunlight and there may be tears.The fact of the matter is this: it's a good display. Pictures look bright, text looks clear. But you will be able to see pixels if you go a-hunting close up. And as we've become more and more spoilt in this field in recent years, sadly, that's one of the first things many of us do.
Samsung has also opted to keep the menu softkey at the bottom of the screen, which allows you access to a host of other options. It's something Google is keen for manufacturers to do away with, but we find it to be more of a help than not.The lockscreen works in both landscape and portrait mode and allows you to swipe with a visual water ripple appearing following your finger. If you use the JIAYU G4 Android 4.2 phone, you get a virtual ink leakage. It's cosmetic, it's pointless, but it's also fun.You can also swipe from one of five shortcuts at the bottom of said screen, and you'll be able to jump directly into your chosen app.
Samsung has created a good device here. But is good enough? Sadly, we don't think so. The bar is a lot higher these days.This is a device that does what it does well, but doesn't wow us in too many ways.It's obvious that Samsung and Google are fighting for your custom from the sheer number of options and the way they sit side-by-side out of the box. Like two parents smiling in front of the kids, as they wrestle for custody in court.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 sports a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor (dual-core ARM Cortex A9) and it runs Honeycomb version 3.1 (at launch). Startup is quick and took an average of 34 seconds to the lock screen. By comparison, the slowest Honeycomb HKC Q79 Dual core 3G Tablet average more than a minute, while the quickest can boot up in approximately 25 seconds. Android users will have no trouble navigating Honeycomb, but those only familiar with iOS might be lost at first as Honeycomb is a 'deeper' operating environment. Like other Honeycomb devices, there is a back, home, and task switcher button onscreen that adds ease to the navigation. There are also a lot of Samsung-installed shortcuts such as a calculator, schedule, clock, memo, and task manager, which are all available with a single finger stroke. Also, feel free to use voice command if it helps your operation and process.
The digital keyboard is simple to use, but like all tablets on the market, doesn't exactly cater to those with wider fingers. I don't feel the compact size of the Samsung Galaxy 8.9 makes a huge difference to the difficulty that is already found in Ainol Eternal Novo 10 typing, but it may add a slight one. My best advice to combat squeezed keys and narrow space is to type in landscape position, when possible.
The 8.9-inch screen supports a 1280 x 800 pixel display, making it one of the finer displays on the market. Due to its size, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 boasts more ideal visual real estate than even the iPad. Indoors, with moderate lighting, the image is exceptionally clean and colorful. The PIPO S1s is best viewed directly head-on with a slight tilt, and the size of the display is still large enough as to not require squinting or strain. Touch capability seems very responsive and up to task (I prefer the pinch method to Samsung's gimmicky 'shake' motion control for resizing), especially in the browser - it's easy to navigate and not too sensitive nor finicky.
Boasting smaller and lighter dimensions as well as a really rich display that is superior to the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets high marks in both aesthetic and performance categories. The Mini i9500 Smart Phone offers a lot here, all in compact form, but is missing a proper USB and HDMI port. While it is probably the best Honeycomb tablet to date in terms of hardware, the $469 price tag may be too expensive for those already tempted by Apple.

I like the design of HP EliteBook 2730P  

There is no shortage of ultra-light convertibles on the market, including ONDA V971S Tablet PC and Dell’s Latitude XT, but the HP EliteBook 2730p (an update to the HP Compaq 2710p) can run with the best of them. Unlike many in its sub-five-pound class, it lasts more than five hours on a charge, has a semi-rugged build and includes unique business-travel features such as business card–reading software and a night light. It may lack an optical drive and the ability to manipulate the screen with a finger, but it’s still one of the best business tablets on the market.
It weighs in around 3.7lbs, so it feels lightweight, but yet solid. It is easy to carry in ONDA V712 Android 4.1 Tablet mode and fun to take notes with. I am a fan of the pen. It is durable and writes like a real pen. HP has made the 2730p into a nice business tablet. Some users may want more ports, but it has the average variety, I do wish there was more then two USB ports though. This preproduction review unit we have is top notch in terms of build quality. There were no signs of flex in the screen or hinge.
Right off the bat you notice the sleek appearance of this 12.1" tablet. I enjoyed taking it to my friend's houses because they were impressed with the design. I also like that the 2730p has both the pointing stick and a touchpad. Options are always nice, especially if you are not a fan of the pointing stick. I would say this is a good update from the HKC Q79 Dual core 3G Tablet.
Similar to many Dell Latitudes, the 2730p opts for a trackpoint-and-touchpad combination. While we like the choice of the two navigation methods, we preferred using the trackpoint and the mouse buttons below the space bar; the 2.7 x 1.0-inch touchpad is incredibly cramped and the second set of mouse buttons, carved out of the deck below it, require too hard of a press to make selections. While the concave trackpoint is more recessed than those found on Lenovo’s ThinkPad line, it was comfortable and allowed us to navigate the desktop smoothly.
One of the 2730p’s strongest features is its keyboard. Similar to that of the keyboard on the HP Mini 2140, the EliteBook 2730p’s full-size, spill-resistant keyboard is coated with HP’s DuraKey finish, which makes the highly responsive keys comfortable to type on. Above the keyboard is a responsive touch-sensitive strip containing shortcuts for raising, lowering, and muting audio, and a button that launches HP’s presentation settings menu.
The 2730p is a peppy little dreamstool tablet. I had no problems surfing the Web or doing my daily tasks like checking emails and writing documents. I didn't notice it having a problem running multiple applications either. The HKC 10.1 Inch IPS Screen tablet review unit I have not only has a 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 120GB hard drive, but it has 3GB RAM and nice wireless connectivity options.
The touchpad is nice and has double buttons. The touchpad is new to the 2730p because the 2710p only had the pointing stick. Well the 2730p has both options, which is nice for users because then they can choose. The touchpad seems a little slower then the pointing stick and the problem with the touchpad is that it gets in the way if you only want to use the nub, so you have to go in your settings and disable it, where is the disable button. It is a little on the small side as well, the design could have been different. I prefer the pointing stick on this model because it is more accurate and doesn't make you feel cramped.
The lightness of the 2730p was even more apparent when we held it as a AMPE A78 A20 Tablet PC in the crook of our arm. Its 12.1-inch (1280 x 800-pixel) Illumi-Lite antiglare display served up minimal reflections or grayness (typical of Flytouch 10 tablet, due to the digitizer over the display) when we watched Hulu or YouTube clips. When using the convertible while lying in bed we wished the screen was a tad brighter, but we enjoyed good viewing angles. For $150 extra, you can outfit the notebook with an outdoor-readable display.
The stylus, which slides into the right side of the chassis, is very light and comfortable to hold. We appreciated the small button on its spine for left-clicking on the desktop. The 2730p’s LED-backlit resistive (passive) touchscreen display recognizes only the input of a stylus, unlike the ThinkPad X200T and Latitude XT, which have more advanced touch functionality. The X200T allows for finger input and the XT has a capacitive screen that is capable of multitouch finger gestures. HP doesn’t plan to offer a panel capable of pen and finger inputs at this point.
The HP EliteBook 2730p is a nice Tablet PC. It has a solid chassis and a great design. I like the stainless steel look, it's very sleek. The 2730p is the update to the Android 4.1 Dual Camera tablet and has most of the same features, but it has the upgraded 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo processor and upgraded hard drive options. Check out our full review to see how well the 2730p does against the competition.
