Which tablet operating system is right for you?
Google Android: This is one of the most popular operating systems for tablet, and while the official Android Market doesn’t host as many applications as Apple’s App Store, it is rapidly growing with new tablet specific applications. There are also third-party applications available for Android, with a number of effective office applications for business such as Due Today, Catch Notes, and Fuze Meeting. The tabbed web browser comes complete with Flash support unlike the Apple iOS. Android makes it easy to share video and other files with your computer in a few simple steps.
Apple iOS : Apple iOS provides a simple user interface for iPad users and offers a wide variety of applications for download from the official App Store, which now stores more than 65,000+ applications designed for the iPad. A large downfall of the iOS is that it does not support Flash and therefore makes it difficult to view specific websites. A main advantage of this systems is that it drives applications that can be used in both an iPad and an iPhone. iOS offers high compatibility with the iPhone so that sharing between the two is easy.
Windows 7: One of the most noteworthy features of Windows 7 is the user interface, which offers desktop and Microsoft Windows familiarity. Microsoft have been applauded for designing a layout that is familiar for those who have been using Windows for the past few years but also for embracing the new generation of touch orientated hardware. This means a shift from window icons to Windows 7 tiles that are larger and provide more visual information.
HP WebOS: Only recently having been introduced to the tablet market, HP WebOS has an impressive unique multi-tasking service which allows for seamless movement between windows and is built for multitasking – an invaluable feature for any business professional. A number of features such as Stacks, Handles and Notifications help the user stay organized and on top of all tasks and activities. The browser supports Flash allowing for easy web viewing.
