Few days back we compared Apple iPad 1 and Samsung Galaxy Tab to find out the best option in tablet PC. Since Apple iPad 2 is launched few days back and recently Motorola has also come up in the tablet PC market with XOOM running on Android 3 OS.
Here we are comparing features of these tablets to find out the best one in the current market.
