THE GREAT SHOW­DOWN

TABLETS vs PHONES vs UL­TRA­BOOKS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

Com­put­ing these days is not fet­tered to the of­fice ta­ble. In fact, it has bro­ken the shack­les and be­come por­ta­ble and mo­bile like never be­fore. So we see the smaller de­vices try­ing to add more com­put­ing power even as the pow­er­ful de­vices are be­com­ing more com­pact.

And if we talk about mo­bile de­vices, the buck stops at the three strong­est cat­e­gories – smart­phones, tablets and Ul­tra­books. While many of us use more than one of these de­vices, we sel­dom bother to see if one of them is good enough to get rid of the other two. Here we pit our picks from the three seg­ments against each other to see how they fare in a face­off.

We have scored each de­vice out of 100 based on 10 pa­ram­e­ters which we thought were cru­cial to all of them. How­ever, in some ar­eas, like cam­eras, it was not an even play­ing field.
