In early 2010, after Apple's iPad successful debut show and marked the beginning of new tablet PC market, many hardware manufacturers noticed and recognized the huge potential market for tablet PCs and prepared during the year. Tablet PC, the design should be light, portable and inexpensive, while the power must be fast enough for everyday tasks like browsing the web, email, Twitter and Facebook.

These tasks are simple enough so they do not want to deploy using Windows OS that higher power is required to run smoothly and it is not cheap. That is why the popular Google Android operating system for the new tablet PC by the manufacturers. Android OS is open source, and publicly maintained and largely approved by the smart phones. The latest public release version is v2.3 codenamed gingerbread. But most of the latest units come with version 2.2. Google recently announced v3.0 Honeycomb, but it is officially announced that for the Tablet PC only at this time. Many consumers want to try the latest version and that is why many manufacturers are planning to adopt Android 3.0 as soon as possible.

Now then what are the key features of Android Tablet PC you want to look for when buying a Tablet PC? I have listed below from the most important features to least.

* Processor: The heart of any computing device. Lower end tablets to install 600 MHz processor, but it is important to select a device with at least 1 GHz processor or you will experience noticeable delay. NVIDIA's Tegra CortexA8 1GHz and 1GHz 1GHz processors are popular.

* Display size and resolution: Popular screen sizes are 7 inches and 10 inches. It depends mainly on your needs. If you would like to use the table as a quick web surfing device only home and would want a big screen, you would definitely prefer 10 inch tablet. But if you want your tablet everywhere around and enjoy, you would definitely want to get 7 inch tablet.

* Operating System: Android 2.2 is a hot new version and you want to search. It is known that faster than previous versions and all other earlier versions are not recommended. Many people anticipate the latest version 3.0 codenamed Honeycomb but no device is available. It is known that more adapted to the Tablet PC. You know, Android was originally designed to be used with the smaller smartphones. If you prefer Windows OS-based tablet PC, you need to prepare for a few hundred dollars more to spend, because Windows OS requires higher computing power and expensive OS license fee.

* RAM, storage, and SD slot: RAM would be around 512 is good but more expensive units come with 1GB memory. Standard storage ranges from 2 GB to 32 GB or more. But mostly they come with external SD card slots with support for up to 32 GB So you want to make sure they SD card slot.

* 3G and Wi-Fi Internet: This requirement also depends on how you want to use your tablet. If you want your Tablet PC with you all the time, you'd probably want to buy 3G supported version. But you should spend a few hundred dollars more in the 3G-supported version. Some of the Tablet PC planned for later in 2011 will be announced the burning such as Motorola 4G Xoom. You can still get around with your Wi-Fi-only version Tablet PC, and enjoy the Internet in various places since many public libraries, bookstores, cafes, airports and offers free public Wi-Fi hotspot services.

* Camera and Video Recording: Has the Camera? In the front or rear or both? What is the pixel size? At least the front camera is required, so you can video chat. You also want to check the 720 HD or Full HD video recording support.

* Touch Screen: Capacitive or resistive? Capacitive is better than resistive screen, but some prefer resistive. Capacitive touch screen detects in contact with an electrical conductor such as human body. Resistive touch screen detects when the pressure is detected on the screen. It is often better to use the nails or sharp object work, such as finger or stylus. Also ensure that the multi-touch required for multi-finger zooming support.

Battery: How long does the battery last? IPAD is known to last 10 hours of web surfing, watching movies and listening to music. In fact, if you can get 10 hours of Android phone with support, has a very good battery.

* Other Ports and connectivity: USB, Bluetooth, 4G, HDMI output,

* Other Features: Accelerometer, GPS, gyroscope.

The more important functions should be Processor, Display Size and storage size. Many other functions are often offered as standard features for the most popular Android Tablet PCs. But do not assume that the new Android fancy tablet PC will have all the popular features. It is important to their website or popular gadget review site to visit and confirm the existence of the desired function of the detailed specifications before actually purchasing the product.

In terms of price, you usually around $ 500 ~ $ 700 for Wi-Fi version and $ 600 ~ $ 1000 for 3G version for the higher end tablet PC charged, but if you are prepared for a number sacrificing the features, you can a nice decent tablet PC is also about $ 300.
