On Tuesday, Steve Jobs has introduced the new iPad 2, which brings users some new features. Undoubtedly, the tablet industry will be highly competitive. Motorola has released the Xoom running Android Honeycomb. Which is better – the iPad 2 or the Xoom? Now I will compare the Apple iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom in details.
The iPad 2 features a 1GHz dual-core A5 processor, and the Xoom has a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. All processors can meet regular needs. Though we have no idea of the iPad 2’s RAM, rumors shows that the RAM of iPad 2 is 512MB, which is only half of the Xoom’s 1GB RAM.

Though people believed that iPad 2 would feature an iPhone 4-style Retina display. With the arrival of iPad 2, we are disappointed that the iPad 2 features the same LED backlit 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768.
The Xoom has a 10.1-inche screen with 1280 x 800 pixels. Also the Xoom’s 16: 9 aspect ratio is better for watching HD-widescreen content.
Both the iPad 2 and Xoom feature two cameras –one on the front and one on the back. Apple did not give us the specifics of its cameras, from which we can figure out that the cameras are not so powerful. The only thing we could know is that the iPad 2 rear camera can record 720p video.
While, Motorola Xoom has a competitive 2-megapixel front camera, a solid 5-megapixel rear camera, and a dual-LED flash.
Undoubtedly, iPad 2 have much more Apps than Xoom. The iPad has been out almost a full year, and there are roughly 65,000 apps designed for it. All these Apps can run perfectly on the new iPad 2.
While Motorola Xoom is the first tablet featuring Android Honeycomb, which is specified customized Android OS for tablet PC. And there are less than 100 tablet-specific apps, which is miserable compared with iPad 2 apps.
