The iPad 3 has continued to be hands down the best tablet pc so far. Continuing the success of its predecessors, the iPad 2 and its progeny before it, the iPad 3’s sharp display, fast processor and carbon fiber casing make the competitors line up in place behind it. The thing that really makes the iPad the winner amongst its tablet competition, however, is its amazing app store. The Apple iTunes app store continues to provide high quality affordable apps that the set the platform apart from its competitors
With the record setting pre opening day sales for the iPhone 5 last month, Apple’s iPhone continues to enjoy market leadership in the smart phone market, despite every increasing competition from the Android markets. As with the iPad, the iPhone 5 has the success of the highly stable and popular iTunes app store to support it with quality apps. While the apps are on average more expensive than their competitors in the Android Google Play market, Apple users are happy to throw down a couple of dollars for an app if it means that they can enjoy the quality and consistency of experience they have come to expect from Apple gadgets.
Samsung Galaxy III
In the Android side of the smart phone market, there is no one who has come close to dethroning the reigning market champion, the Samsung Galaxy III. In fact, if there was any phone that was able to match the popularity and market demand of Apple’s smart phone behemoth, the Samsung Galaxy is close on its heels. With a larger display, faster processor, more ram and 12mp camera, serious gamers and shutterbugs alike will find this smart phone much more to their liking than the one size fits all iPhone 5. And with the addition of a high definition display, the Samsung Galaxy III is one of a select few smart phones that can actually steam HD video on demand. With game developers creating increasingly intensive games for smart phone mobile devices, the Samsung Galaxy III’s leg up in technical specs and quality display may actually push it up into a close race for market superiority with Apple’s iPhone 5 in 2013 once the hype cycle around the iPhone has died down a bit.
