Hanvon Windows 7 Tablet vs iPad

The Hanvon Windows 7 tablet is a new competitor to Apple’s iPad and will hopefully arrive till the end of this year. Until then you can whatch this video where it competes directly with the iPad. And the Hanvon kinda busts the iPad and it might become even better when it becomes available.

The iPad clearly wins when it comes to zooming in the browser. Typing on the keyboard, and web page rendering is slightly faster than on the Hanvon, but the Hanvon comes really close. Not much difference there. But with Windows 7 you’ve got Adobe Flash support of course. So your YouTube experience is infinite better than he would get on the iPad.

Other than the restricted iPad the Hanvon Windows 7 tablet comes with an quite open operating system and is packed with a front-facing camera, three USB 2.0 ports, a SD card slot, and even a trackpad.

iPad Camera Connector Kit

The iPad Camera Connection Kit has finally shown up. It consists of a pair of two white dongles. One is just a simple SD card adapter. It adds one-touch image and video import to the iPad. If you take your pictures in RAW format you might be interested in the fact, that it also imports RAW pictures complete with the EXIF data.

The second dongle provides a USB port with some new functionality. It is reported, that you could connect a USB-keyboard and actually type on the iPad via this USB keyboard. Also there are rumours, about USB audio. The dongle should enable you to make Skype calls after connecting a USB headset. It is said though that the USB and SD image transfers are one-way only, and not all peripherals are supported. For instance you can not connect an external hard drive to the iPad using the Camera Connectivity Kit. Camera Connection Kit shipments are two to three weeks out.
