It's a tablet battle between two of the newest tablets out the HP TouchPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Hardware & Design

HP TouchPad

The Touchpad is a 9.7 inch portrait design tablet with a more thick and hefty build. It is all plastic but with its extra weight gives it a solid feel. The design is minimalistic in terms of buttons and ports with just one micro usb port and one 3.5 MM headphone jack. Buttons are just the volume key and power. There are 2 stereo speakers on theft side that are Beats Audio powered but is covered up if you don't hold it in the right place when holding the tablet. There is a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video chat with no rear facing camera at all which is a disappointment. There should have been an option for a version with a rear facing camera and one without it. Internally the processor is a 1.2 Ghz dual core processor with 1 GB of ram and runs the latest version of Web OS 3.0.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is landscape style tablet with a 10.1 in display with an overall thin and light build that feels solid even though fully plastic. Samsung went to create the thinnest tablet possible at just 8.9 mm thick. For ports you have a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a proprietary dock connection when you have to use their USB cable for charging and syncing and their accessories. On top there is a power button and volume key and on the side are stereo speakers. There is a rear facing camera that is 3 megapixel with 720p video recording and 2 megapixel front facing camera for video chat. Internally its running a 1.0 Ghz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor with 1 GB of ram.

Neither device offers expandable storage which is lame but overall here Samsung comes with the better hardware and design. Thin and light tablet with great hardware specs. The Touchpad design would be good if it came out last year. It good construction just dated.
