Since the introduction of the laptop people have enjoyed having the ability to take their computer everywhere they go. Modern technology is giving us the power and features of a PC in devices that are smaller than books. The tablet has revolutionised the mobile computer industry. Let us now take a look at the most popular tablets of this year.
Currently the highest rated tablet is the iPad 3 from Apple. This upgraded version of the iPad features the new iOS5 operating system and a dual core A5X chip. Users have given this device a perfect 10 rating. Most users cite the speed of the tablet and battery life as two of the reasons they give it such high marks.
With a rating of 9.68 out of 10 the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 is the next highest rated tablet for 2012. This tablet features the latest Android OS and is thinner and lighter than other tablets. It also features the largest screen of any other tablet. This tablet is a challenger for the number one spot, and it has a much lower price than the iPad.
The Sony Tablet S is next in line with a rating of 9.5 out of 10. This tablet is considered to be the best built of all tablets and it offers PlayStation certification. The main drawback is that you can get internet connections through Wi-Fi but not through mobile broadband.
The T-Mobile G Slate tablet comes in with an overall rating of 9.35 out of 10. The G Slate is noted as having the best display of all of the tablets on the market. It features the latest Android OS and 4G speeds. Many people will choose this tablet because you can take 3D pictures and video with the dual 5MP cameras. The main drawbacks are the cost of 4G connections and the battery life of the unit. 4G connections generally drain the battery faster.
The Asus Eee Pad Performer receives an overall rating of 9.2 out of 10. One of the big draws for this tablet is the price, it is one of the most affordable on the market. It is also a fast unit that offers an optional keyboard dock for those that like a traditional keyboard. Some of the problems is that the device does not support mobile broadband leaving you with Wi-Fi as your only way to connect to the internet.
Rounding out the top ten Tablets for 2012 are the Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0, BlackBerry Playbook, HP Slate 500, and the Dell Streak 7.0.
