What Are The Best Tablet PCs Available To Buy Now?
Below are the whattabletpc.com Best Buys. These will update as new devices are released and reviewed. Best buys relate solely to the tablet PCs already on the market and overviews of each device are available via the links.
Best All-Round Tablet PC
Apple iPad – it’s been on the market since the beginning of the year and no-one has come close yet to challenge it. There’s nothing to compare that offers the screen quality, media playback and battery life of the iPad yet. No doubt there will be challengers coming but they’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
Best Cheap Tablet PC
Archos 7 Home Tablet – a decent attempt and at a very low price, there’s a few niggles as we reported recently but then at around $200 (£130 in the UK) you get a good return.
Best Windows Tablet PC
Viliv X70 – not many options in this category so far but the Viliv X70 is a sound choice. It’s a bit on the pricey side but does a good all-round job. It’s just let down by the touchscreen which isn’t as responsive as the iPad and some questionable reviews on it’s high-definition video playback.
Best Android Tablet PC
Archos 7 Home Tablet – wins by default currently as there’s nothing else is really on the market. You can’t argue with the price but it only uses Android version 1.5 which is a very old version. We fully expect this one to loose the “Best Android Tablet” tag very soon.
Let me know if you have any nominations for these categories and we’re open to introducing new awards too.
