Top tablets: Best buys (August 2011)
- — 26 August, 2011 10:01
Looking for a tablet on a budget? You should look no further than PC World Australia's best buys. These tablets are a rank of the top 5 models based on perceived value for money.
Although the tablet market is dominated by Apple's iPad, the market leader isn't exactly the cheapest proposition. It is here in the best buy category that Google's Android platform shines through, making up four out of the five selections in our August list. The other is HP's TouchPad: made available for just $98 from Harvey Norman, after HP effectively killed the device and its webOS platform. The bad news is, good luck finding one.
3 / 5
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a nicely sized tablet that offers the flexibility of Google's Android OS, making it a valid alternative to the iPad. However, the Galaxy Tab feels far less slick and polished in many areas than Apple's tablet, especially when it comes to Web browsing. We also feel the Galaxy Tab is overpriced, making it a tough sell in a soon to be crowded market.
