Would the Google tablet be able to compete with the iPad?

iPad, the center of media attention and idolized by journalists, accepted by early adopters and even the common folks, has proven to be a milestone in Apple’s History. It is a device that would continue to be the unrivaled king of Tablet Bog.

Thousands of features set it apart from other tablets like the App Store, Huge Screen with IPS Technology, Multi-touch etc. A lot of companies including Microsoft, Sony and even Nokia are giving their best shot to create a tablet which would be royally known as the “iPad Killer”.

The problem is that Apple’s biggest competitor, Google, just stepped up into the game. Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt told friends about an upcoming Google Tablet. Of-course, we knew this was coming. Google had to respond to Apple. Google’s Chromium OS website released quite a few pictures earlier this year which demonstrated how Google’s OS for netbooks – Chrome OS, would look like on a tablet. But Eric said that the Tablet would not run Chrome OS but instead run on Android – a mobile OS. Android would be a better choice for a tablet considering that it supports Apps.

Google even plans to introduce a new market full of Apps for the forthcoming tablet. Considering the success of the iPad, this indeed would be a good move as the Android market has failed to impress a particular section of the society. Google’s new product is rumored to be named as the gSlate or possibly the gTablet but we however are quite uncertain as the naming thing with Google is always “shaky”.

Google’s mantra is “Web Apps” whereas Apple and its numero uno, Steve Jobs believe in Standalone Apps. People also seem to like the native apps as they tend to offer much higher functionality. The Tablet era would not be dominated by the hardware running but the software that would make it a lot more functional. Apps are the “attention catchers” of this era and Google’s mantra seemed to have failed. Chrome OS, being only a browser would hardly be able to support native apps, while on the other hand, the iPad seems to be all about Apps. That’s the reason Google and its team have agreed to run Android on the Tablet and are following Apple’s path.

A tablet should be a ‘Laptop Killer’ and a replacement for a netbook. The iPad is just that.

Apple saw Amazon rise up with its ebook reader – Kindle. They took it as an opportunity and launched the iPad which is an ebook reader as well. Apple has iBooks Store available for download from the App Store which makes the iPad a perfect ebook reader. Apple has signed up with many leading publishers around the globe and the iBooks Store is a huge success. The Google Tablet is rumored to have its own Book Store and would be an ebook reader. Google would take help from its already established and much controversial – Google Books. Either the books app would be Cloud based or Google would incorporate it as an App in the Android Market.

Google once again is teaming up with HTC and plans to deliver this Tablet with features that would shock the world as Google has just derided the iPad as an over-sized iPod touch. Apart from the regular Apple-Google fight we also have Microsoft and Nokia in the market competing for the tablet market.

The Google-HTC duo do produce some great hardware and software. Keeping in mind the Nexus One, we could be rest assured that form and design would definitely be a factor in favor of the Google Tablet. This Tablet’s screen is rumored to be 10.5′ in size which would be slightly bigger when compared to the iPad.

It is also rumored that the tablet would be launched sometime during summer.
