First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best alternatives to the iPad 2
- — 24 March, 2011 10:50
Despite being the dominant player in the relatively new tablet market, there is set to be plenty of valid alternatives to the iPad 2, particularly Android tablets.
The newest of these is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which will launch in Australia in mid-April through Vodafone. Samsung is serious about the tablet market — the company will also launch the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and a thinner, lighter version of Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the same name. Both of these new Android tablets will hit Australia sometime between July and September.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is without a doubt the best Android tablet on the market. It's thinner and lighter than Apple's iPad 2, despite having a larger screen, and offers most of the functions and features of its competitors. The lack of external storage is a pain, as is the fact there is no HDMI-out connection, but the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a superb piece of industrial design and so far, the only real credible alternative to the iPad.
