HP TouchPad vs Apple iPad 2 vs Sony Xperia Tablet S:Who is your babby?

 W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                   HP TouchPad                                                                                                                                            HP webOS is a genuinely impressive operating system. Although some tout it as being intuitive, we're not sure that's really its strength.The HP TouchPad uses Palm's unique WebOS interface and delivers Adobe Flash-enabled Web browsing, Beats audio enhancement, and impressive compatibility with third-party calendar, messaging, and e-mail servicesThe screen is one of this tablet's stand out features, though. It's the same size (9.7in) and resolution (1,024 x 768 pixels) as the iPad 2 and is as within a gnat's whisker of being as good quality with great viewing angles, bright colours, and good contrast. .Battery life according to HP is 9 hours for continuous video playback, and in our test (WiFi on, Bluetooth off, video looping) we came close to that: just over eight and a half hours. That puts it slightly ahead of the Motorola Xoom but again behind the Tab and iPad 2.
But, The TouchPad has a thick, smudgy design, offers no rear camera or HD video capture, includes a limited app selection, and its unique cards system of multitasking isn't as fully utilized as it could be.
The bottom line: The TouchPad would have made a great competitor for the original iPad, but its design, features, and speed put it behind today's crop of tablet heavyweights.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Specifications

That beats Apple's own claims, and bests its nearest competitor -- the Xoom -- by about 2 hours.
But, The iPad's screen resolution hasn't budged, photo quality is mediocre, there's still no Adobe Flash support, and ports for HDMI, USB, and SD all require adapters.
The bottom line: The iPad 2 refines an already excellent product. Its easy-to-use interface, vast app catalog, and marathon battery life bolster Apple's claim to being the king of tablets.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Specifications

The Xperia Tablet S is fast and responsive, and is particularly adept for playing games — I'm getting really good at Shadowgun as I test more and more tablets, and it's as smooth and impressive on the Xperia Tablet's display as any I've tried.With a 6,000mAh battery, the Sony Xperia Tablet S doesn’t have a huge battery. However, as its screen is so relatively low-tech, it doesn’t really need much more. Set to play video, the tablet’s battery will last in excess of eight hours, which is decent enough for a tablet of this size.
But, Unfortunately Wi-Fi currently shuts off whenever the tablet sleeps, waking the tablet from sleep takes way too long, and its screen flickers intermittently. Price is a bit high for what's offered.
The bottom line: The Xperia Tablet S has an excellent design, but there are cheaper alternatives that provide similar and better tablet experiences.                                                                                                       Specifications
