Ipod touch vs android tablet confused???


Hi friends,

My friend is coming from US in a month. I plan to get a useful gizmo from him. I have zeroed in on the IPOD but find that there are a few tempting tablets in the price range of 250 - 300 dollars. Impressed especially with the viewsonic Gslate which retails for 279 d.

Want u to guide me plssssss....

These are 2 very different things, are you really confused what to buy in these two??

Although if you are planning to buy an Android tablet, i have few suggestions for you..
- Buy branded ones only
- I would say buy 10", i find 7" a little small (personal preference)
- Buy something which has good community support as most probably the company will stop support for the device at some point, only the community support can help you after that.
- Go for ones with good hardware, atleast 512MB RAM

IMHO, if you can find something which satisfies these conditions and falls within your budget, buy it, otherwise wait for some more time until Android tablets becomes more common and affordable.

Recently arranged Archos 43 internet tablet for family friend.
It is excellent device except that it has resistive screen.
Having used ipod touch 4g I can say archos 43 is much better device.
They have 7" and 10" models also but choose Generation 8 (the new series) devices only.

Re: Ipod touch vs android tablet confused???

it all depends on what you want?small ipod or a tab,archos players are amazing for video play back,the archos 70 and 101 are descent value for money,my suggestion would be get a 1st generation refurb ipad for $350 from the apple store,as good as new

Re: Ipod touch vs android tablet confused???

You are choosing between an mp3 player and a tablet. So decide according to your interests and what you will end up using more. If you want an mp3 player to carry around with all the great apps provided by apple and a great interface, you choose Ipod touch. Its not ideal for watching movies or reading books and magazines.

Else if you like a cool device you want for surfing internet and listening and take it around while you are traveling to watch movies etc you chose the tablet. But you cant walk holding it while you switch the play list or while you are jogging. Its more portable than carrying, say a laptop, but not like the mp3 player.

I recommend SuperPad 2 FlyTouch 3 for android. Has good h/w spec and plays HD files smooth and screen is sharp. Going to use it for reading and watching movies on travel. Main purpose is to control HTPC and Music PC remotely. Getting it for 8000INR (Negotiated for a screen guard + 10" Nettop carry bag and leather book case for 600INR)
