Nexus 7 Tablet – Does It Stack Up To Others?

Nexus 7 Tablet – Does It Stack Up To Others? | HTR

In the ever changing world of mobile technology, how do YOU select the right tablet for your organization or event? We know about the impact of Apple’s iPad and Microsoft has successfully positioned its Surface Pro 3 as a laptop replacement. But what about an Android tablet? With an estimated 51% of the mobile market share, Android devices are a force to be reckoned with. If you are used to the Android operating system, the Nexus 7 tablet rental might be ideal for your in-house office needs or corporate meeting.

Let’s look more closely at the Nexus 7, iPad Mini and Surface Pro in order to garner an overall view of how they stack up.

Tablet Rental Comparison

Size

Nexus 7: 7.87” x 4.49”
iPad Mini: 7.87” x 5.3”
Surface Pro: 10.81” x 6.81”

Clearly, the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini are the winners in terms of size and can be a great asset where space is limited or attendees need to access apps while standing or walking.

Operating System

Nexus 7: Android 5.0
iPad Mini: iOS 8.0
Surface Pro: Windows 8.0

The big difference here is the Android operating system has been developed to harness the processing speed and intricacies of mobile technology. While the iOS and Windows operating systems are both upward and downward compatible (phone, tablet and desktop), they are not optimized for just one device type. The advantage of being a mobile only app is the hardware and software can work more congruently thus allowing great app performance.

Nexus 7: 65,000+ apps available through Google Play
iPad Mini: 600,000+ apps available through iTunes
Surface Pro: 100,000+ apps available through the Windows Store

Nexus 7: 10 Hours
iPad Mini: 10 Hours
Surface Pro: 9 Hours

Clearly, the iPad has the greatest number of apps. If you are looking for a breadth of apps, the iPad Mini rental may be your answer.

iPad Mini: 16, 64 or 128 GB
Surface Pro: 64, 128, 256 or 512 GB
