We just got an iPad 4.
And an iPad mini.
And a Nexus 7.
And a Nexus 10.
and a Microsoft Surface.
Oh yes we did.
And they’re all here for all Penn students, faculty, and staff to come and try out. Just come to the Vitale Digital Media Lab and ask the lab consultant on duty. We’re not lending them (yet!) but you can use them while you’re in the lab.
Here’s a quick comparison of them:
|Tablet Name||Dimensions||Operating System||Weight||Manufacturer|
|iPad 4||9.5 x 7.3″||iOS||23 oz||Apple|
|iPad mini||7.9 x 5.3″||iOS||13.4 oz||Apple|
|Nexus 7||10.4 x 7″||Android||12 oz||ASUS|
|Nexus 10||10.8 x 6.8″||Android||21.3 oz||Samsung|
|Surface||7.8 x 4.7″||Windows RT||24 oz||Microsoft|
We’ll also be showing them off at Gadget Day on December 7. Be sure to check out the other sessions we have going on that same day.
