Tablets have screen sizes from 7-inches to 20-inches and sell for $70 to over $1,200. They have PPI ranging from 132 to 339. Factoring that data for some of the more popular devices we produced the following chart of the cost per megapixel.

Cost per screen megapixel in popular tablets


Ironically, the lowest cost tablet, the 7-inch Ematic ($75) got the best score.

The chart proves a single factor, like PPI, doesn’t tell the whole story.

This chart and lots of other data will be in our forthcoming 2013 report, Mobile Devices and the GPUs in them. Pre orders are being accepted now. Contact Robert Dow
