First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best 10 inch tablets
- — 18 May, 2011 14:55
Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in iPad and iPad 2 tablets, and most of the competition has followed suit with similar sized 10.1in models.
Pitched as ideal media consumption devices, 10in tablets are said to be the ideal tech device that sits between a smartphone and a notebook — large enough to work comfortably on, but light enough to carry around on a day to day basis.
Popular 10in tablets include the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, sold exclusively through Vodafone, the Motorola Xoom, launching initially on Telstra and then available through Optus, and the Acer Iconia A500, sold through retailers including Harvey Norman and Myer.
Upcoming releases are set to include the thinner Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (not to be confused with the current Galaxy Tab 10.1v), ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider models, and the webOS-powered HP TouchPad.
4 / 8
The Acer Iconia A500 is a little on the chunky side, but potential buyers may be happy to make the sacrifice in return for USB and HDMI-out connectivity.
