That means data such as email messages, passwords, bank account details, and media like photos and videos could have been on those devices when they reached the hands of new customers. If such info reaches the wrong hands, the original users might end up having a lot of sleepless nights in the future.

iPad 2 vs. Motorola Xoom vs. Galaxy Tab In A Drop Test

droptest

The guys at Square Trade have thought to drop test different tablets to see how well they fare. They started out the test series with an iPad 2 covered in a Smart Cover and a bare iPad 2.

Apparently, Android 3.0 will bring the ability to encrypt all the data on the tablet, protecting it with a secure password. This will certainly help get Android tablets in the hands of enterprise users, who may have otherwise been waiting around for the PlayBook later this year.
