Most of them run Google Android 3.x (Honeycomb) and have high specification, sexy design, and reasonable price.
1. Toshiba Thrive
Toshiba Thrive has a solid design. The battery of this tablet is removable, the USB and HDMI ports allow you to display on wide screen TV. However, this tablet is rather thick, the price (from 430 to 580 USD) is not very attractive compared to other recent tablets, and the error for rebooting from sleep mode hasn’t been solved yet.
2. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the thinnest tablet in the market (only 8.6 mm). Its HD screen provides high quality images. It runs an Android 3.x with a modified interface. However, from the PCMag test, this tablet runs online video not smoothly with a wifi connection.
3. HTC Flyer
HTC Flyer is different from other tablets. It runs Android 2.3.3 which is widely used in smartphones. It is powered by single-core 1.5 GHz and 7-inch pen-touch screen. One interesting feature of this tablet is it can be used as a phone when a sim is inserted.
4. LG G-Slate
LG G-Slate for T-Mobile is the first tablet that supports 4G and 3D technology. It has an awesome HD display, an ability to capture and display 3D images and videos. However, it has Honeycomb OS with the originally boring interface and some errors occur when running flash.
5. Asus Transformer
It is the most successful Android tablet nowadays due to the low price. It can be connected with a keyboard to be used as a netbook. The 3G version will be introduced in the near future.
6. Acer Iconia Tab A500
Acer Iconia Tab A500 has a similar specification to Asus Transformer. It has many connection ports, such as USB and HDMI. It is big and heavy and no 3G or 4G option. The quality of the camera in the front is not very good.
