HP TouchPad vs. Motorola Xoom vs. iPad

A comparison between- HP TouchPad vs. Motorola Xoom vs. iPad

(Click to enlarge)

The HP TouchPad runs on a speedy dual-core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. The Motorola Xoom is also dual-core, with an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip. Only the iPad runs on a single-core (Apple-customized) A4 processor. The iPad also has the least amount of RAM (256MB), while the TouchPad and Xoom run on four times more memory (1GB). The speedier processors should help the tablets open and run apps faster, while more RAM aids in multitasking (both improvements take a toll on battery life, however).

Although the TouchPad will come in 16GB and 32GB versions, the Xoom will come in just one 32GB version. The iPad also has a 64GB version. Only the Xoom offers expandable storage via an SD Card slot.

The iPad 2 is rumoured to be announced next week. What would you buy, would you wait for the iPad 2?
