Picture of the Week: Apple’s iPad vs Google’s tablet

iPadGoogletabletThe well expected Apple’s iPad has been announced last week at an Apple press conference at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Cupertino’s firm has already made of its name, a legend with its iPhone, iBook, and iPod. But will it also meet with success  with the iPad, even with the dyed in the wool Apple lovers?

like it or lose it, it’s here, and in images.

And for the most skeptikal, I’d recommend to have a look before at those very impressive mockups below of what Chrome OS may look like on a tablet form factor. According to TechCrunch, “the photos have been posted to the official Chromium site (Chromium is the open source project behind Chrome and ChromeOS). And [...] it appears that these mockups were put together by Glen Murphy, Google Chrome’s designer. In other words, there’s a good chance that the final version of Chrome OS will resemble this”.

Stunning. It seems that just as it happened a few month ago with this sudden eBook readers’ frenzy, the tablet war will be the new theater of operations for IT giants, where they’ll demonstrate who the boss is. Apple fired first, but missed. Let’s wait for Google’s answer :)
