Apple or Android? 16GB or 32GB? Black or white? These are the most common questions that pop up in the mind of many consumers when buying a new tablet. Most people take Apple’s iPad as the de facto standard for a tablet, thanks to its impressive hardware and fantastic app ecosystem. However, Android tablets have also earned some popularity recently, kudos to Google’s Nexus range of slabs as well as the ASUS Transformer line that boast a powerful OS and immense processing power under the hood, along with a pretty decent number of available apps. For the average consumer though, buying a new tablet still comes as a daunting task. Brought to us by the Rocket Network – the same guys behind the previously featured CameraRocket, TabletRocket is a brand new service that aims to help you with these issues by letting you compare almost every type of tablet out there that supports Android, iOS, Windows and BlackBerry OS.
