As a seller of Androids family, you will need to understand the way the wind is blowing with Android family devices. Until the end of 2010, there was no doubt that Android Phones are what would bring in more sales. However, technology incubation happening in the tablet -labs over most of 2009, saw the introduction of the new breed of Android Tablets by 2010.
The better of last year has been spent by technology device analysts crunching usage, statistics, feature-for -feature aspects of Android phones and Android Tablets (across brands) to find the ideal all-in-one device(if possible) for the tech-savvy consumer. The result is that the users choose phones or tablets based on what they actually want to do with it.
Feature comparison between Phones and Tablets
Know your Android Tablet PC for features, for this is where you can make the killer sales. If you have a buyer-request that has just these specifications- a large screen, touch screen and Wi-Fi it will be embarrassing if you were to prop an Android Phone when what they are essentially looking for a Android Tablet.
Besides, not every buyer is knowledgeable on hardware and performance and may need your assistance.
Gamers, Movie-watchers will buy Tablets
Therefore as a retail seller, wholesaler or a drop ship seller, you will have to place your pulse on Android Tablets as these are where all those users who are big on browsing, catching up on movies- old reruns /new movies and (on the big daddy of all computer activities) gaming, will be headed towards. Over the six to eight months, the trend for buyers to pick these tablets as they have all the main features they will be using and the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi for the normal number of phone calls and texting that they will be doing.
Longer battery-life will make Tablet better choice
There is the one other technical aspect that both devices have an issue with- the battery life. Large screen phone are major energy guzzlers. The bottom line with big screen phones is that bigger batteries cannot be place in smaller phone bodies. The older wide-screen phone used smaller battery sizes, but the later ones come with larger battery power. However, they are not a match to the more than 24-hour backup the Android Tablets are able to provide, even if buyer were to use them optimally.
Besides, on the issue of Connectivity the tablet has greater capabilities. The chips included in both are WiFi, HSDPA, GSM/CDMA, Bluetooth as standard features. However, with greater scope for working or entertainment available on Android Tablets these are the choice. The Samsung Galaxy is enabled to make calls as well. EA and Sony are making more and more games for Androids only.
Pricing favours Tablets
Then the issue of pricing is another factor that will influence the choice between the Android Phone and the Android Tablet.
A keen look at Amazon will show that the Samsung Galaxy (a Tablet) with 3G connectivity and full-loaded features will cost roughly the same as Google Nexus ( a Phone).
Tablets will be the next wave of communications and computing, with each passing month more and more features and capabilities are going to be added making it more powerful and useful. The Tablet is where the fork between conventional PCs and Phones will become very clear. And how Tablet will become the surviving species.
To be top-line seller of Android Tablets your USP will be your domain knowledge on Tablets and understanding that different types of usage will need different features on the Tablet. So, here is to profit-making on the Android Tablets.
