Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Vs Apple iPhone 4 – Android 3.1 or iOS 4.3?

So get this: the Samsung Galaxy Tab is a tablet PC that you can use to make phone calls, while the Apple iPhone 4 is a mobile device that also acts as a tablet. Now the question is, which one is better? Both gadgets offer similar features, but how do their operating systems compare against each other?

The latest version of Samsung Galaxy Tab (SGT), the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is announced to be launched on June 8, 2011. The SGT 10.1 will be equipped with the latest Android operating system, the Android 3.1 Honeycomb. This operating system supports two new APIs, the USB host API and Open Accessory API. The latter API allows Android applications to integrate with musical and exercise equipments. Honeycomb 3.1 also enables widget resizing and improves the performances of Real-Time Transport Protocol and Media Transfer Protocol. The SGT 10.1 is also equipped with state of the art hardware to support the Honeycomb 3.1, 1 GB of RAM and the 1 GHz Tegra dual core processor. Compared to its older generations of Samsung Galaxy Tab, the SGT 10.1 is thinner. Older versions are about 12 mm in thickness, while the SGT 10.1 is only 8.6 mm. It is even thinner than the Apple iPhone 4, which is 9 mm in thickness. Samsung announced via Twitter and Facebook that the Android 3.1 Honeycomb used in SGT 10.1 will be different from the Android 3.1 OS featured in Motorola Xoom. Unfortunately, there were no further details on this.

On the other hand, the iOS platform for the Apple iPhone 4 also offers interesting features. One of them is the Auto Correct feature. However, this feature is not without its drawbacks. Instead of correcting spelling mistakes, the auto correct tends to replace some words with something else. There are a lot of examples on the internet about funny misspelled texts done by iPhone users, if you care to search them. But of course it is unwise to single out the iPhone just because of the auto correct glitch. The iOS also offers other good features such as multitasking capabilities and Bluetooth keyboard support. Recently, Apple launched the iOS 4.3, which is an improved operating system for the iPhone 4. Unfortunately the latest platform seems to have its downsides. Many people complain that the iOS 4.3 actually drains the phone’s batter faster than the earlier versions of iOS.

So now that you know the pros and cons of each operating system, which one do you think is better?
