In Pictures: 7 solid 7-inch tablets that rival the iPad mini (and cost less)

The best 7-inch tablets available today, including tablets from ASUS, Samsung, Lenovo and HTC. And all 7 of these 7-inchers cost less than Apple's brand new iPad mini tablet.

HTC Flyer

Description: HTC's Flyer is a bit long in the tooth at this point. But it's noteworthy because it works with a unique digital pen (sold separately) and "Scribe" technology that enable a new breed of electronic note taking and drawing. The Android 2.3-powered Flyer has HTC's "Watch" service, which gives users access to a variety of movies and video content.

Notable Specs: 1024 x 600 display; 1.5GHz processor; microSD card slot for expandable memory; SRS WOW surround sound speakers. (Unfortunately, HTC does not plan to update the Flyer to a newer version of Android. But it is also reportedly working on new Flyer-like tablet, called the Vertex.)

Price: The 32GB HSPA+ and W-Fi Flyer is available for $289.99 via

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
