First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best tablets: Editor's choice (August 2011)
- — 26 August, 2011 09:36
Are you in the market for a new tablet? See what our expert reviewer's recommend with our editor's choice selections. These tablets are a rank of the top 5 models based on personal selection by the PC World Australia editorial team.
Our August editor's choice list is headed by the market leading Apple iPad 2, the current, undisputed king of tablets. We've found room for three Android "Honeycomb" tablets including the razor-thin Galaxy Tab 10.1, along with the 7in BlackBerry PlayBook. Despite its lack of native e-mail, the PlayBook's UI and compact size makes it a nice alternative to larger tablets.
5 / 5
The BlackBerry PlayBook has a refreshing interface and excellent multitasking, but its lack of apps -- both default and through BlackBerry App World -- means it offers little incentive for non-BlackBerry smartphone owners. With future software updates and additions, the PlayBook will only improve, but it remains behind the competition.
