Review Mash-up: Motorola Xoom, Apple iPad 2, and HTC Sensation 4G
Reviews for HTC Sensation 4G, iPad 2, and Motorola Xoom from top gadget news sources -- collected and disclosed.
There are probably a lot of cool gadgets that were released lately. That includes the HTC Sensation 4G and Apple’s iPad 2. But providing the best, yet exact descriptions for those recently launched devices may seem complicated. Hence, GADG decided to collate some short reviews of the top gadgets for this year.
HTC SENSATION 4G
Launched last June 15, T-Mobile’s HTC Sensation 4G was supplied with advanced features such as qHD (960 x 540) display, dual-core processor, and a 4G connection.
“Premium. This would be our word of choice to sum up the HTC Sensation 4G’s design. From the bevelled glass display through to the aluminium construction, the word is metaphorically lathered all over this phone.” – Phone Arena
“When it comes to high-end Android phones, it’s really hard to select a clear winner. The HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile is certainly one of the most exciting and powerful phones to hit the U.S. market in quite some time. The dual-core Snapdragon processor has enough muscle to satisfy most of your gaming needs, and the handset’s camera is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Combine those two features with the Sensation 4.3-inch qHD display, and you’ve got yourself an amazing piece of technology that should keep you happy for years.” – Android and Me
APPLE IPAD 2
Officially announced by Apple on March 2, the thinner and lighter iPad 2 had already been available in online and retail stores since March 11. The iPad 2 came in two models – WiFi and WiFi+3G, with either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB memory.
“Apple has built the iPad 2 by making everything that was good about the first iPad, better. If it wasn’t for the poor optics quality, I would say that this is a perfect product upgrade. Anyhow, in the current tablet context, it’s fair to say that iPad 2 is an “excellent” product. As long as you understand what it can -and cannot- do, you should be happy to own one.” – Ubergizmo
“It might frustrate the competition to hear this, but it needs to be said: the iPad 2 isn’t just the best tablet on the market, it feels like the only tablet on the market…For those of you who haven’t yet made the leap, feel free to take a deep breath and dive in — the iPad 2 is as good as it gets right now. And it’s really quite good.” – Engadget
Competing against Apple’s iPad 2 is the Motorola Xoom. This Android 3.0 tablet with 32 GB memory, two cameras, and 280×800 touchscreen, was launced last February 24 for the price of $799.99.
“The Motorola XOOM is the first tablet to strut up to the iPad and say “this town’s not big enough for the both of us.” The XOOM gave us a stellar Internet experience, and the new Android Honeycomb was a pleasant divergence from the stale 2.2 OS. With its powerful dual cores, plenty of RAM, and top notch touch screen display, the Motorola XOOM put the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch to shame.” – InfoSync
“…Motorola’s tablet is really quite good. The tablet is fast and sleek, and while not exactly being really futureproof, the fact that you’ve got a path to a 4G upgrade is tremendous (and frankly, something no one else in the industry is offering).” – Engadget
Provided above are few reviews of the top gadgets that were launched recently. GADG hopes that by reading those, you can see for yourself if these devices are really worth having or not.
