SFPL & GIANT’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide: Top 5 Tablets

 top_5_tablets_DL

 

Tablet usage has grown substantially over the past years and Apple’s dominance is no longer a rubber stamp with devices from Microsoft, Samsung and others challenging for market share. Here are some of our choices to pick up.

 

iPadAir-Diamond

iPad Air – $499

Still one of the sexiest on the market and now weighing a mere pound, the Apple guys have packed a lot into the iPad Air. Two antennas for better Wi-Fi, thinner frame, a faster 64-bit processor, a battery that will let you work for 10 hours easily and a few other tune-ups make it a worthy successor to the previous iPads.

Stand Mode Yoga Tablet

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 – $289

The first thing you notice about Lenovo’s Yoga Tablet is the new design that resembles a rolled up magazine. This little addition gives it a natural and familiar grip for easy handling. It houses the new battery that lasts about 12 hours. It also serves as the linchpin for the 3 modes of the Yoga (handheld, standing and the new typing mode). And in the $300 range, it’s a good choice for tablet seekers on a budget.

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 – $899

As more units running Windows 8 roll off the assembly line, the Microsoft Hybrid Surface Pro 2 (big brother to the RT) is the one to get. The new version touts a new jazzed up processor, a 2 stage kickstand giving a user more flexibility, crisper display, better keyboard response and 75 percent more battery life. It’s still a bit large and heavy to be a true tablet, but in versatility, and getting work done, no one does it better.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) – $550

Samsung’s predecessor to its first Note tablet has added some bells and whistles that make it a real head turner and feel more like the high-end device it is. The new Galaxy Note 10.1 integrates many of the Galaxy 4s updates and better S-Pen optimization with the new Air Command interface. Add to it a 10.1 display wrapped in a faux leather rear casing that gives it that luxurious feel that was missing from the predecessor.

 

Nexus 7 - hero - press site

Google Nexus 7 – $230

For the price and size, it’s hard to find a better option that the Nexus 7. Lighting quick processor speed that has apps and webpages opening virtually instantaneously, a display that rivals larger, high-end tablets and options like restricted profiles and wireless charging are just a few of the things that makes the Nexus 7 one of the best bargains on the Android system.

Fly Technology: Microsoft thinks they have the One with new Xbox reveal

Today, Microsoft gave the press its first look of their highly anticipated next gen system to challenge Sony’s Playstation 4 revealed earlier this year. The Xbox 360 successor which was worked on under the code name Durango has been dubbed the Xbox One.

Named for Microsoft’s mission to, “design and build an all-in-one system to light up a new generation of games, TV and entertainment,” as said by Microsoft’s president of Interactive Entertainment Business Don Mattrick, the Xbox One aims to be the centerpiece of a new entertainment experience. The game console is now taking on more of a multimedia role, a trend that was already starting with Playstation 3’s integrated Blue Ray player, but the Xbox One aims for true integration. The Kinetic voice and motion controller is now a part of the package and allows for hands free operation of your system. It also is said to be able to instantly recognize various users allowing for different settings based on the user. Owners will be able to switch games, channels or going from gaming to TV to browsing the internet by voice alone. Voice prompts like “Show me what’s on ESPN” will take the place of those dang hard to set preset channels on your current remotes.

Other features include, practically silent operation, a new controller that has a new ergonomic design, dynamic impulse triggers with built in feedback, Xbox smart glass, of course faster processors, more memory, and a built in DVR.

Overall the system looks a bit large in contrast to the current slim systems and not much emphasis was focused on the actual gaming of the system, as there was only a few clips of upcoming games, but it is clear that this presentation was targeting the mainstream market. A stark contrast to and maybe planned move by Microsoft as Sony’s reveal of the Playstation 4 was primarily touting the system’s gaming ability and aimed at gamers and developers.

We are excited by the prospects of the new system, but are reserving judgement for more details including possible integration with cable systems (as it resembles a cable box anyway) and more importantly finding out when it will actually launch and how much we have to shell out for it.

Stay Fly!
