Samsung Galaxy Note
Is it a tablet or a phone? The Samsung Galaxy Note is actually a bit of both, says Phil Lavelle on TechRadar.com. It has some of the best specifications around, and is not as pricey as it seems if you also use it as your mobile. Price: £450.
Sony Tablet P
The Sony Tablet P has Playstation certification and is "clearly aimed at the gaming crowd", says Eugene Kim on PCmag.com. The clam-shell design makes it easier to carry around, but also harder to use than it should be. Price: £359.
The Apple iPad remains the tablet to beat, says Matt Bingham in The Sunday Times. Its new 9.7-inch screen is the sharpest of any tablet and you can get more apps than any rival more than 200,000. Price: from £399.

The latest Blackberry Playbook is a welcome improvement over its predecessors, says Dave Oliver in Wired. It's a good cheap option if all you need is email and web access and business features such as spreadsheets and word processing. The lack of apps, however, is a serious weakness. Price: £169.
Asus EEE Pad Transformer Prime
The Asus EEE Pad Transformer Prime separates into a ten-inch tablet and a laptop keyboard. This is a "huge improvement" over a virtual keyboard, says Matt Bingham in The Sunday Times. A "clever device", showing Apple's iPad approach isn't the only viable one. Expensive though. Price: £500.
