Windows 7 Slate Faces Off Against the Apple iPad
We're still waiting for the myriad of Android and Windows 7 tablets we've been promised by various different companies to hit the market. Once they do, they'll more than likely be compared to the iPad straight away.
We don't have a lot of information on this Windows 7 Hanvon slate, but it will supposedly launch before the end of the year. It packs a camera, a trackpad, a USB port and an SD card slot. So it beats the iPad in those departments, but overall, how does it fare against Steve's magical and revolutionary web tablet?
The iPad takes the cake when it comes to zooming, as pinch to zoom is a little stuttery on the Hanvon. The Hanvon also has a more full-featured QWERTY keyboard. Whether you consider that a positive or a negative feature is probably down to personal preference, but it's safe to say the iPad is easier to type on because fewer buttons means more space for the buttons you do have (things look a little cramped on the Hanvon). Windows 7 seems to do better in the browsing and webpage navigation department, and it also loads up a YouTube video faster than Apple's iPad.
We won't ruin the whole video for you, as it's kind of fun to watch. Check out the full battle below!
