How the 3 tablets compare based on popular criteria used by tablet users

Design: Arguably, the Samsung tablet leads the pack here due to its polished packaging followed by the Nexus 7 and then the XOOM 2 bringing up the rear.
Hardware: The Galaxy Note 10.1 is the outright winner due to its more powerful 1.4 GHz quad-core processor and the inclusion of the S-Pen. Then comes the Nexus 7 with the XOOM 2 losing out as it features only a dual-core processor.
Software: Clearly, the prize goes to Google Nexus 7 for incorporating Android’s latest edition. Galaxy Note 10.1 still has a very contemporary Android 4.0 but the XOOM 2 falls short due to its older Android 3.2 operating system.
Display: Both the Note and the XOOM 2 are on par due to their 10.1 screens but the former has an edge due to its Super PLS display technology.
Features: Based on the above specification (listed), it’s hard to be the Galaxy Note 10.1 in these stakes.
Connectivity: Here the Note and XOOM 2 are again on equal terms. The Nexus 7 loses out due to the lack of DLNA and HDMI slot
Portability: Google Nexus 7 trumps the other 2 here as it is much smaller, convenient, and lighter.
Price: The Galaxy Note is the most expensive at $499 followed by the XOOM 2 and the Nexus 7.
From the aforementioned discussion, prospective tablet buyers can take their pick. Meanwhile – bring more tablet releases on!
