The tablet PC is becoming a very popular trend with technology junkies and even the casual PC user. Tablets are an easy way to store important items and move around with them. Some people might think “why not just get a laptop” but for some people design and ease of storage is seen as a great benefit. Business men and woman have all waited in lines to receive their iPad, but now the Kindle Fire is out and some people might want to change their preferred Apple tablet to an Amazon one after all. Let me give you a rundown of exactly what these two tablets are made of.
The iPad runs on the iOS 5 operating system. This operating system now has more than 90k of apps available for it. While the iPad has dedicated apps, the operating system has no option for users to improve their own personal preferences. Basically, the OS is locked and that means you have to accept it just the way it is. The only thing that you can change is the amount of storage used or how you want to connect to the internet. The Kindle, on the other hand, uses the Android OS which gives the user the ability to customise it to their liking.
