Best 7 inch tablets

We round-up the best 7in tablets on the market

Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in iPad and iPad 2 tablets, but this doesn't mean you aren't left with other choices.

For many users, the iPad's 9.7in screen makes it too large — some consumers would feel more comfortable using a smaller tablet with a 7in screen. This means that it can easily slip into a handbag, or suit jacket pocket.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab kick-started the 7in tablet market, but a host of devices have followed including the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Research In Motion BlackBerry PlayBook

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.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
