The Newest Android Tablets on the Market

The Android tablet is an awesome piece of gadgetry to have at your beck and call. It floors the ipad hands down. You cannot multitask with your ipad because of its poor battery life. On the other hand, Android tablets can last a long time because they come with dual processors. Furthermore, these batteries are replaceable. You can get a new battery if you are under warranty without having to send in your tablet.

This is not the case with the ipad, when your battery dies it cannot be removed, so you have to send in your old ipad for a new one. And if you have not synced it, your apps and personal information go with it, never to return. There is no competition between the ipad and the Android tablet.
