Its 12 GPU cores do provide some of the best performance in an Android tablet, but for sheer horsepower it can’t beat even the iPad 2’s A5 SoC, let alone the A5X in Apple’s third tablet.

Not surprisingly, the Gmail and standard email apps are appropriately laid out to take advantage of the spacious confines available with the tablet – so organizing emails is a pleasure to handle.
