Gadget News readers from Indonesia to the United States know that the more intuitive and easy to use a gadget is, the greater the adoption by users globally. We don’t have to look past Apple’s success to realize this. Take the iPad 2 for instance, the display on the iPad 2 touch screen is a mear 132 pixels per inch and less detailed than many of its competitors including the Samsung Galaxy Tab (170 pixels), Blackberry PlayBook (170 pixels) and the Motorola Xoom (150 pixels). Let’s not forget the camera feature on the iPad 2 as its front camera captures images at only 640×480 resolution and its back camera is only 0.92 megapixels. The PlayBook has a 3 megapixel front camera and a 5 mega pixel back camera. The Xoom has a 2 megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera.
Apple has not yet announced its 4G wide-area broadband plans, but Xoom will soon offer a free 4G LTE upgrade, and the PlayBook is launching a optional 4G WiMAX and LTE, as well as HSPA+ which is faster than 3g, but not up to 4G standards. Android has a tremendous advantage as a growing open source platform and growth in Andriod based phones is skyrocketing (android-phones-review.com), but for now at least, Apple’s user experience is second to none.
