Tablets, tablets, tablets. After those two years of spectacular rise in sales, with everybody became a substitute and came to buying a new computer in many cases, sales have calmed down and is returning to a little more normal levels . Manufacturers know that the first place that comes to the consumer is through the eyes, and have a lower thickness, with a very small frame , is the first step for a tablet to be considered attractive. With the idea of PhoneArena a recent tale of Samsung tablets and ultrathin he runs a list of the five finest tablets market as of June 13, 2014:
5. IPad mini
Although the current model has Retina display, the previous model introduced in late 2012 was slightly less thick. The iPad mini is the compact version of the Apple tablet, after seeing longevity and good numbers of sales of models with 7 Inch Android relented at what seemed impossible: a version of “mini”. Yes, (almost) 8 inches instead of 7 razed in the market. Thickness: 7.2 millimeters .
4. Sony Xperia Z Tablet
Another old model that nevertheless remains in the Top 5.’s Xperia Z Tablet was presented at the Mobile World Congress 2012, just a month after the arrival of the smartphone that gave her name and that was a turning point in Sony Mobile : Bring the Xperia Z. 10.1-inch screen, 495 grams, Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of RAM, as well as certification IP57 water resistance and dust.
Thickness: 6.9 mm .
3. Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
Newly filed in New York, has been boosted with his little sister in the third and second place (either, both have the same thickness). Arrive as the ultimate form of Samsung to address the iPad . Two models with variations in screen sizes for powerful leverage in high-end hardware, screens aspiring to dominate the market.10.5 inch screen on this model, with resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, 3 GB of RAM , Snapdragon 800/5 Octa Exynos processor as.
Thickness: 6.6 mm .
2. Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
And here the little sister of above, for those looking for something more manageable sizes. Specifications as S Tab 10.5, same purpose: to consolidate itself as high-end tablet with Android par excellence. A hollow, despite everything, is still too blurred. In other words, become the iPad of Android.
Thickness: 6.6 mm .
1. Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
Despite wear on the market several months, from February to stand at Mobile World Congress 2014, no one has yet even decrease its thickness ridiculous. Comes, like its predecessor, inspired in design and hardware in the smartphone it is named: 3 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 801, 10.1-inch screen and 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, and IP58 certified to be waterproof.
Thickness: 6.4 mm .
And the rest?
Maybe five tablets a little know someone who wants to see a slightly more complete list. If we expand the list to ten, would read:
Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 (6.4 mm)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 S (6.6 mm)
Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 (6.6 mm)
Sony Xperia Tablet Z (6.9 mm)
iPad mini (7.2 mm)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 Pro (7.2 mm)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Pro (7.3 mm)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (7.4 mm)
iPad Air (7.5 mm)
Retina iPad mini (7.5 mm)
Here comes another debate. We are seeing a race to create thick tablets at least possible. When were other measures, such as the 13.4 mm of the first iPad, which itself was reasonable thickness would tend to reduce as far as possible. Does it make sense to continue down ever? Say you got tablets at a time to 4 mm thick. Would not it be better to keep it in 8 mm, perfectly acceptable, giving a much greater autonomy change?
In smartphones seems almost unanimous yes we should anchor ourselves in a certain thickness in favor of autonomy. On a tablet, where autonomy is something greater than themselves, and the need to stay connected is somewhat lower, perhaps itself a more attractive design is preferred. Vote: what do you prefer, sacrificing autonomy for lower thickness, or thicker in exchange for greater autonomy?
