Tech Battle: Blackberry Playbook vs MSI WindPad

In our first Tech Battle, we took a look at the ever-popular iPad and did a small comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Tablet. *click here to view* Although these two are the main contenders in the battle for Hand-held Does it All devices, they're not the only ones making a battle for the top. With Blackberry still keeping their device under wraps and the MSI WindPad still circulating buzz, Apple & Samsung may have a run for their money coming in the second quarter.

Coming soon to an electronic store near you will be the much anticipated, Blackberry Playbook. The Blackberry Playbook has a 7"LCD multi-touch display with built in support for HTML 5 and full Adobe Flash 10.1 is enabled. Dual HD video cameras located on both the front and back will make video conferencing a breeze. The Blackberry Playbook offers games as well as media applications from web pages. It operates on the QNX Os and is compatible with 250,000 Blackberry Enterprise servers. The Playbook also offers a 1GHz multi-core processor with USB connectors and space for a memory card. Both of which are options missing from the Apple iPad.

Last but not least in this new line up of tablet devices is the MSI WindPad 100W. Operating on the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium platform the WindPad boasts a 10.1" display with HDMI output(something no other tablet has). It includes dual cameras on the front & back which support video chat. The WindPad 100W uses a 1.66 GHz Intel Menlow Atom Z530 processor which supports a quicker web browser and multi-media options. The multi-media experience on the WindPad is rich and available on a device under 2 pounds with up to 6 hours of battery life.

We've now shown you the top four tablet devices, some in stores and some still being developed. But now we want to get your opinion on this! Out of the iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tablet, Blackberry Playbook & MSI WindPad which one would you purchase? Do you think the Apple iPad is overrated? Do you think the Blackberry Playbook will make a huge storm onto the tablet scene? Is it possible that the WindPad could take over being the only Windows 7 formatted device?
