2012 has been a very good year for the Tablets Industry, so here are our top 5 tablet hotpicks for 2012 which are really worth your money. From the sassy Apple’s iPad 3 to the high-end Motorola Xoom 2, there’s a wide variety of gadgets for you to choose from.
There has been something of a frenzy of tablet releases ever since the first Apple iPad made it into stores just over a couple of years ago. Now that many different manufacturers are hoping to get hold of your hard-earned cash in return for one of these mobile devices, picking which one to buy can prove to be a little bit on the tricky side. However, there are five that stand up well as the best contenders for 2012, at least until the next stream of new releases come along.
1. Apple iPad 3
The Apple iPad is still seen by many as the best of the bunch when it comes to owning a tablet that comes with everything you need to get the best from mobile computing. What’s more, it oozes style and is well made to boot. Now that the third incarnation boasts a beefier processor, improved camera with image stabilisation and HD capacity along with a fab Retina screen it’s certainly a fine bit of kit.
2. Sony Tablet S
If you’re looking for something that is similarly well built and also boasts an excellent design, but don’t necessarily want the iOS operating system found on the Apple device than take a look at the Sony Tablet S. This has been a long time coming, but the end result is a slick and stylish gadget that packs in innovation, such as being able to turn it into a universal remote control. It’s great for mobile gaming too.
3. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 is another key player in the rush to bag new customers and it too is an excellent device that comes with the Android operating system along with fine lines and yet more top quality construction. It’s got all of the toys built-in and the screen is second-to-none. If you love the appeal of something like the Samsung Galaxy SII smartphone then expect more of the same with this lush offering.
4. Asus EEE Pad Transformer Prime
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is a new model from the home of the netbook and this manufacturer always manages to come up with something a little bit different to the rest of the tablet pack. On face value it’s a little reminiscent of the iPad, but thinner and also sports a powerful processor that pushes the Android OS to the max. You’ve got all of the camera functionality you’ll ever need and there’s a battery-boosting keyboard dock on offer too.
5. Motorola Xoom 2
Meanwhile, the Motorola Xoom 2 is another Android device that makes a nice alternative to the more conventional tablets out there. There’s also a Media Edition up for grabs too, which is smaller and very light while the screen is one of the standout features thanks to its excellent resolution. This device is well put together, has impressive performance from the dual core processor and also contains all of the usual apps that you’ve come to expect from the Android OS.
