Best upcoming tablets in 2012

The best tablets still to come in 2012, from Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 to the Acer Iconia Tab A700.

Apple's new iPad may still be the dominant force in the tablet market, but there is plenty of choice from other manufacturers.

We round up the best upcoming tablets in 2012, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and its "S-Pen" stylus, to the Acer Iconia Tab A700, which boasts a high resolution of 1920x1200.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The S Pen certainly adds a new dimension to the Galaxy Note 10.1 and we like the bundled apps that Samsung has included. Once you look past the S Pen, however, you're left with a tablet that doesn't offer anything particularly exceptional. Ultimately, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is an average Android tablet with a stylus. That just isn't good enough in such a competitive market.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

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.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
