11 Awseamone Ipod Competitor

Haven’t given in to the iPad fever yet? You’re not alone.

While America was seduced by its sleek appearance, popularity and proven performance rates, the iPad isn’t quite flawless. It has yet to support Flash or accommodate SD cards or HMI output.

Of course, Apple is the quickest adapter out there, so they’ll beat the hurdles. But until that moment, you might be more satisfied with one of these 11 iPad alternatives instead.

Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid

Both tablet and netbook, the Lenovo IdeaPad (pictured) unfolds from its standard, snazzy laptop and becomes much more.

Running Windows 7 with an Intel CULV processor, the Lenovo comes with a detachable multi-touch display built as a six-panel interface capable of customization with email, calendar, widgets and RSS.

A secondary four-panel screen supports images, music, video and e-reader widgets and is capable of flipping to portrait when used as an e-reader.

Axiotron ModBook

Known as the original Apple Tablet (successor to the ancient Newton), the ModBook from Axiotron boasts a pre-polycarbonate unibody MacBook and slim control pen, built-in camera, 13.3-inch screen and a 120GB hard drive.

With Windows compatibility, built-in optical drive and Full OS X, the ModBook supports Flash with impressive multitasking abilities.

Of course, there is no App Store. Otherwise, though, it’s pretty magnificent.

enTourage eDGe Dualbook

Wired Magazine says the iPad is not necessarily the wisest machine in which to invest your hard-earned dollars, calling it “an underpowered device for its price tag” considering that “the same money could buy you a nice laptop.”

Or, it could buy you the enTourage eDGe Dualbook — two screens linked by a hinge holding a speaker.

Much more than an e-reader, the eDGe’s right half is an Android-powered touch screen notebook with a 10.1 inch display, 1024 x 600 pixels, audio recording for playback and sharing, video camera recording (MP4s or 3GPs) and ability to switch between landscape and portrait layout. The left shows a 9.7 inch display, 1200 x 825 pixels and touch-sensitive notation capable of taking sketches and handwritten notes.

Easy on the eyes, this device is considered ideal for academics or voracious readers.

The Best E-Readers

“Although it seems that all we ever talk about these days is the tablet — how gorgeous the iPad is, how the tablet will kill off the netbook,” writes Fast Company tech journalist Addy Dugdale, “the more dynamic market of the moment is e-readers.”

The most well known e-readers, which picked up substantial steam before the iPad’s appearance, are the Kindle and its rival, the Barnes & Noble E-Book, known as the Nook.


Known for its real paper-like display, its 10.2 ounce lightweight build and its ability to maintain screen integrity in even the harshest of sun spells, the Kindle downloads books directly from Amazon in less than 60 seconds.

The wireless service avoids monthly fees, annual contracts or need for Wi-Fi spots, and is capable of connecting to Amazon and downloading anywhere near cell reception.

More than 540,000 books as well as magazines, international newspapers and blogs are sold in the Kindle package, with more than 1.8 million of them offered free. Its most noted feature, however, is its simplicity.


For those better skilled with screen function and looking for a more solid, all-encompassing e-reader, Wired’s Gadget Lab recommends the Barnes & Noble Nook, where “instead of the chiclet-keyboard,” common to the plastic-like Kindle, “there is a color multi-touch screen, to be used as a keyboard or to browse books, cover-flow style.” Certainly sleeker in appearance, the Nook offers more than 1 million titles, free 3G wireless, five font sizes and a 16-level gray scale to reduce glare and backlight problems.


Creating quite a stir, the WePad is a German-engineered device rumored to rival the iPad in a substantial way.

With an 11.6-inch touch screen display, GMA 3150 graphics, Bluetooth, 1.3-megapixel web camera, 16 GB storage (32 GB SD card support), two USB ports, optional GPS and Flash card reader, the WePad supports seamless multitasking and allows its Web camera to translate easily to Skype video calls.

Said to debut in Germany soon, the WePad is recommended for those looking for something more open and flexible than the current iPad model.

Notion Ink Adam

Boasting a brilliant 16-hour battery life, 10-inch display and 3-megapixel camera, the Notion Ink Adam aims to be one of the first devices to use Pixel Qi’s display, which allows switching between low-power, black-and-white display and full-blown LCD mode color with the press of a button.

Weighing in at 1.7 pounds as opposed to the iPad’s 1.5, the Notion Ink Adam offers ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, accelerometer, multi-tasking, SD card slot, Flash support and a variety of other upgrades.

Google Chromium Tablet

“Whereas Apple is anti-netbook,” says TechCrunch, “Google is very pro-netbook — they just want to make them better.”

So while iPad’s Steve Jobs has publicly negated the idea of e-readers in preference of tablets, the Google Chromium Tablet is set to bridge both worlds. Or as TechCrunch put it, “to target the market in between the laptop and the mobile phone.”

Not yet released for purchase, it may be worth waiting for the Chromium, as its functionality and design are intensely similar to iPad smoothness. And it will present an open forum to build apps and other software possibilities Apple’s hardware currently do not offer.

ExoPC Slate

A powerful Windows 7 computer capable of electronic books, TV, radio, video, app building, multi-tasking and Flash, this looks, feels and functions like an ultimate iPad.

The ExoPC UI Layer Development Kit uses JavaScript and Flash to add touch-screen support for pre-existing applications written in any format.

At 11.6 inches, the ExoPC fits perfectly in the iPad’s price range, though it only offers five hours of battery life, because of its more preferable Intel N450 powering rather than the weaker Intel Atom Z5xx CPU common to most Windows machines.

Able to switch between the traditional Windows UI and ExPC’s proprietary interface, the ExoPC is an iPad threat.

Dell Mini 5

After being spoiled by smart phones capable of cramming information into a pocket-sized device, the Dell Mini 5 fits in perfectly.

On a carbon, 5-inch 800 x 480 LCD screen, the user is able to load Google apps, browse the Internet, watch video, play games and more.

A front-facing VGA camera located between the earpiece and proximity sensor is ready for video chat apps like Fring and Qik, and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash is located at the device’s back.

Tested under realistic usage (sampling music playback, video viewing and internet browsing), the Mini 5 still hovered at a battery lifespan of 10 to 12 hours.

We have to add two meta tags to the head section of the template.One is the Meta description which describes your site and another one is Meta Keywords which tells about your site keywords(what your site is all about)

Search with google ajax

All of you might have seen the New Ajax Search Gadget on yourLayout Add GadgetPage. This Ajax search gadget doesn't support adsense ads.But you can now have a Google ad supported Google Ajax search widget on your blog.The speciality of the Ajax Search is that it can search your blog, without actually leaving your blog.(no need to go to a new page.. it acts like an inline search)

The Ad supported Ajax search Code is available at Google Web Elements .You can see 3 options there.

  1. Automatically Search My Site

  2. Search my Site and use Adsense for Search

  3. Use an existing Custom Search Engine

For showing adsense ads you have to opt for option 2 or 3 .If you choose to use the second option,then you will have to provide you Adsense publisher id(which looks like pub-xxxxxxxx).If you opt for the option 3, you will have to provide the Custom search ID, which will be present in your Google Custom search Code.[Code is generated inline when you enter any of these ids.]

After grabbing this code, just go to your Blogger > Layout page and add a newHTML/JavaScript Gadget and paste the Google Web Element Custom Search code there and save the gadget. The Gadget will look better if you drag it to above the Blog Posts Widget and save it.[that area has got enough space to display the ads :)]

If you want to change the colours and styling of the search results, you will have to add additional CSS Classes.

Update: – Now Google CSE has added all these things. and much more(themes and other customization stuff) So it would be easier for you guys.. :)
