Top Tablets Coming Soon

HTC Jetstream

Following on the from the seven-inch Flyer earlier this year, HTC has released a more 'standard' sized tablet in the US, with a 10.1-inch screen. Packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, it's the fastest Android tablet on the market in terms of pure processor power, and doesn't disappoint elsewhere either. It offers an eight-megapixel camera, solid brushed aluminium back and Android Honeycomb - something sorely missing from the Flyer.

Unfortunately we're still waiting for a UK release date, and while we do, keeping our fingers crossed for a more sensible price than the Flyer had.

Sony Tablet P

Sony's Tablet P stands out from the crowd thanks to its clamshell design, making it the perfect compact device for throwing into a bag without worrying about scratching the screen. Each screen measures up at 5.5 inches and as well as browsing, the tablet also works great for gaming - with the bottom screen working as the controls. We can't wait to see more from this one.

Toshiba AT200

The AT200 is Tosh's second stab at the tablet game, and we suspect it could be more successful than its first. For a start, it's got the 'world's thinnest tablet' claim to its name at 7.7mm thick, but it's also up to scratch spec-wise.

Currently running Android 3.2, it features a bright 10.1-inch screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and up to 64GB on-board storage (expandable via microSD). It also has stylish brushed aluminium back design and at just 558g, its seriously lightweight too.

 Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A1

Panasonic's Toughpad is aimed at a very different audience to most tablets, offering a rugged design and a big focus on security. Not for the average commuter wanting to play Angry Birds on the way to work, the 10.1-inch Toughpad is designed for mobile outdoor workers in challenging conditions such as aviation, construction and public safety. It holds its own in the spec department, with Android 3.2 on-board, not to mention 16GB storage, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 10-hour battery life and five-megapixel camera as well.

Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition

The Media Edition of the Xoom 2 is the smaller brother of the 10.1-inch version, with its screen measuring in at 8.2 inches. Other than that it's similarly specced, with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, five-megapixel camera and 16GB on-board storage. If the smaller screen appeals to you though, you'll be able to pick it up even cheaper than its sibling at £329.99.

Amazon Fire

Amazon made its big tablet unveil 6 weeks ago now and the Kindle Fire is currently being prepped for sale in the US next week. With its seven-inch display and $199 price tag, not to mention the good reputation of the Kindle, it's almost certain to be a hit. Yet where's our UK release date, Amazon? Are we going to be made to wait two years before we see it this side of the pond like the Kindle? We hope not!
