San Francisco, CA, United States (4E) – According to tests conducted by DisplayMate Technologies, the Samsung Galaxy Tab’s display is inferior compared to Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet and Apple’s iPad 3.

Compared to Apple’s iPad 3, the Surface RT and Galaxy Tab 10.1 fall short. The iPad 3 features better pixels per inch, retina display, pixels per square, small text readability and color depth.

The Surface RT’s display is better than the Galaxy Tab in terms of sharpness and small text readability.

“On-screen text is significantly sharper, it has a better factory display calibration, and also significantly lower screen reflectance than the iPad 2 and all full size 1,280 x 800 Android tablets,” DisplayMate Technologies’ Dr. Raymond Soneira said in his findings.

Even if it was Microsoft’s first foray into the tablet market it outperformed mainstay Samsung, which is already an impressive feat.

Microsoft is slated to release the second generation of the Surface tablet next year and it will feature an Intel Core i5 processor and a pixel density of 1,920×1,080.

“The [Surface RT tablet] is not as sharp as the iPad 3 or 4, nor does it have their large full Color Gamut. We’ll have to wait for the high resolution Windows Pro Tablets that will be launching in early 2013 for direct comparisons with the high resolution iPads and Android Tablets,” Soneira added.
