Refreshed Galaxy Tab vs iPad Specs

Verizon is updating their Galaxy Tab model with upgraded specs including 4G LTE and a 1.2 GHz processor. We already compared the new Galaxy Tab to the old one, so now it seems fit to compare it to the other tablet available on Verizon. That tablet, of course, being the iPad.

The refreshed Galaxy Tab is the clear winner here. Not only does it have a faster processor, 4G LTE Speeds, more RAM, and cameras, but it doesn’t require you to carry around a MiFi hotspot in order to get mobile data.
