Best upcoming tablets in 2011

The best tablets still to come in 2011, from the Sony Tablet S to the Huawei MediaPad

2011 has been a massive year for tablets, helped along by the debut of [[artnid:381655|Apple's iPad 2]]. However despite the year fast approaching its end, there is still plenty of tablets to come in 2011: the most anticipated are Sony's late-arriving [[artnid:384459|Tablet S]] and [[artnid:384468|Tablet P]] duo, and Samsung's eagerly awaited [[artnid:380740|Galaxy Tab 10.1]] and [[artnid:401378|Galaxy Tab 7.7]].

Sony Tablet S

Sony has put a lot of work into the Tablet S and it definitely shows: its the most comfortable Android tablet to hold and use. It also bundles some exclusive, nifty apps that you won't find on any other tablet. We wish the screen was brighter, build quality better and software slicker, but the Tablet S remains a pretty good device on the whole.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
