Upcoming and Anticipated Tablets in Early 2013

At first, Merry Christmas, and I wish everyone go through a happy holiday.

upcoming tablets in 2013
New Year 2013 is coming, and 2012 is gone. Undoubtedly, we can list the surprises of 2012 tablets such as Nexus 7,Kindle Fire HD,iPad Mini,Nook HD+,Surface RT, etc. The perfect performances of new tablets just make us enter into a world in which tablets and smartphones are neck and neck. So what can we expect for tablets in 2013? Following just let’s have a look at the upcoming and anticipated tablets in 2013.

Microsoft Surface Pro
The most notable thing about Microsoft’s tablet is its windows 8 in this moment and Surface RT tablet’s Windows RT system is based on it.But surface RT cannot support any desktop applications. So comes the advanced version the Surface Pro.With a 10.6′ inch ClearType HD display, Surface Pro comes with an intel Ivy Bridge Core i3/i5 processor and 64/128GB Storage. Also, it contains two HD cameras both on front and back. It supports 3G, 4G LTE.It will be inarguably a big hit when Surface RT is released.

Asus Transformer Book
The most excellent tablet is probably Asus Transformer Tad 700 at present. And Asus has planned to brought some new tablets to us. The first one coming in January 2013 is Transformer Book, which is a wonderful Convertible of Laptop to Tablet running on Windows 8.Sporting Core i7 3517 processor which runs at 1.9GHz and 4GB RAM , Transformer Book gives you three options 11.6 inch,13 inch and 14 inch. Whatever Transformer Book performs, I think we need to take care of it to get a view of the flexibility of this device.

HTC Windows RT tablets
According to Bloomberg ,HTC will be producing 12-inch tablet and a 7-inch tablet running Windows RT and slated to be released in Q3 of 2013. The 7 inch version would be the first 7 inch windows RT model which will of course join in the 7 inch competition. The special feature about the HTC new tablets is that both of the two versions can make phone calls.That is to say, you can take it as a phone. It is said that the new tablets will use Qualcomm chips but no other specs have been revealed. Whatever, this new HTC tablets can worth expecting.

Archos GamePad and 97 Titanium HD
Archos launched GamePad and 97 Titanium HD in this December. GamePad is a 7-inch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean gaming tablet, which is now available in Europe for 150 euros and will released in US in the first quarter of 2013.It comes with a 1,024x600 screen ,14 physical buttons and a game-mapping tool that lets you set up your controls. It sports a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with a quad-core Mali GPU, and also it includes a 8GB storage(microSD card is allowed), a front-facing webcam and a mini-HDMI output to connect to HDTV.As a gaming tablet, GamePad has its own pros but it is still early to answer the question “Can it be another Nexus 7?”.

Just like other great tablets, 97 Titanium HD aims to match it with a 9.7-inch IPS multitouch panel with an ultra-high resolution of 2,048x1,536 pixels. It includes a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with a quad-core Mali GPU, 8GB of storage, and microSD and running Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean", as similar as Gamepad. With a Retina-like screen, I think 97 Titanium HD is what we anticipated.

Acer Iconia B1 Android tablet
From a report in the Wall Street Journal,Acer is planning to launch the Iconia B1 Android tablet for just $99 , a beatable price compared to 7-inch tablets like the $159 Amazon Kindle Fire.The B1 comes with a 1024 x 600 resolution screen and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Unfortunately, Acer is planning to release this one in emerging market rather than US maket.

Nokia Windows 8 tablet
With Nokia’Lumia 920 ruling the sales again, Nokia is also working on the new Windows 8 tablet.The tablet will be matched with a kickstand-provided keyboard cover that will have its own battery, allowing it to run as an auxiliary power supply. Others now known include HDMI and USB ports, a cellular connection, and boasts a 10.1-inch display like the Microsoft Surface. AT&T will reportedly be the first carrier partner to sell the device. Nokia is succeeding to change its decay with the new windows smartphone, so would it be the same to the tablets? Just need to wait.

When you have read the list, you will find that it seems that most of the upcoming tablets are windows 8 tablets. Maybe the reason is the great Android tablets and iPad 4 have been released in this year and maybe it is still too early. But 2013 is another necessarily competitive year for both tablets or smartphones. The last winner, Windows , Android or iOS?
