Talking Tablets February 21, 2011

Technology is constantly changing. Every day we’re exposed to something new. Just think about it. Less than 20 years ago, hardly anyone even knew about the Internet. And, how many text messages did you send from your old analog cellular phone?

Well, we’re now heading into the next frontier of communicating here at HTC with the addition of tablets, in particular the new Samsung Galaxy and trailblazing Apple iPad.

The Galaxy brings together all of Samsung’s leading innovations to provide users with more capabilities for being mobile, whether it be around the house or on the go. Consumers are able to experience PC-like web-browsing and enjoy all forms of multimedia content on the 7-inch display. Moreover, users can take their pick and communicate via e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS or continuously update social networking sites.

The Galaxy allows for:

  • Video Chat
  • Gaming
  • eReading
  • Web Browsing
  • Email

You can purchase the Galaxy from HTC for $549 with no commitment.

As for the iPad, what is there to be said about it that’s not already been documented? It’s the latest robust communications tool from Steve Jobs and the gang at Apple. It allows for some great entertainment and connective features. With its big, bright 9.7-inch screen, the iPad is ideal for watching video. Throw in the iPad’s robust battery life and obvious portability, and you’ve got a top-notch on-the-go entertainment device.

In addition to watching video on the iPad, you can also get your daily newspaper and monthly magazines digitally through the device. Publications such as Sports Illustrated, GQ, The New York Times and USA Today, plus News Corporation’s new The Daily all have apps that allow subscribers to get fresh content on their iPads.

Reading on the iPad, or any tablet, is easy, cuts down on the clutter you have in your home and most importantly is green-friendly since it doesn’t involve trees! It is easy to flip pages, as you would with printed pieces, but the coolest thing is the ability to zoom in on photos and make fonts larger, therefore being easier to read.

As a web surfing tool, the iPad also provides a great experience. Apple says that using Safari on this tablet is like holding the Web in your hand and it’s indeed immersive. Plus the scrolling and zooming are fast, thanks to that 1-GHz A4 processor.

The ability to move quickly with the built in keypad is helpful and eliminates those pesky keyboards.

You can purchase a 3G and Wi-Fi capable  iPad from HTC for $649.

In all, we’re excited to have these new products for you and hope they can make your life easier.

To learn more about them, you can visit www.htcinc.net. Also, don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and let us know if you’ve got a Galaxy or iPad.

Until next time, feel free to share your thoughts on what’s happening at HTC in the “talk back” section below.
