It seems like Android is having a hard time keeping up because many tablet makers are slow to release new tablets that take advantage of Ice Cream Sandwich. While new tablets like the second generation of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab have now been released, they have yet to make a tremendous impact for Android.
Right now, Android is banking on the smartphone side of the war between Apple vs. Android. Somewhere down the line though, Windows 8 is going to drop between them like a huge bomb. You better sell your iPad because Windows 8 is almost here!
What is it about Windows 8 that’s so impressive? Well, newly improved design language called Metro is impressive. But let’s take an in – depth look on why you should sell your iPad for a Windows 8 tablet, not for an Android.

Faster Access to Settings
In iOS, if you want to change something the settings in your iPad, you have to close whatever you’re doing and go to the settings. Connecting to the Wi-Fi and turning on other features is such a drag because of that.
With Windows 8, you don’t have to do that anymore. All you have to do is swipe towards the left from the right side then tap the Settings menu. You’ll be able to adjust everything such as brightness, connectivity and app related options.
Personalization Is Prominent
With iOS, you’re burdened with what you’re given. There’s really no room for customization, save from the wallpaper. With Windows 8, you’re given freedom to customize the look of the interface. For example, you can place a certain picture instead of the default one in Metro.
You can even pin contacts, apps and websites to Metro for easy access. It’s the amount of freedom Windows 8 gives you that makes it so cool.
Unlock in Style
When unlocking your iPad, all you do is swipe to unlock and nothing much after that. With Windows 8, you’re engaged in unlocking the tablet in a fun way. You’ll provide a picture and then input your custom doodles to the picture to unlock it. You can put a picture of your brother and give him a beard, a mustache and a halo if you like!
Of course, there are the usual ways to unlock Windows 8, but how can it get cooler than that?
Selling your used iPad for a Windows 8 tablet is definitely worth the time. Now, all you need is patience to wait for the release.
