Some say that tablets are taking over from computers as more people choose to use them over their PCs. Lightweight and portable, tablets give you access to essentials such as the internet, your emails and documents plus a host of other features such as games, movies and books. It’s amazing what can be done on a tablet, which is why they’re so popular. We’ve decided to put together the best tablets that we would recommend with Android operating systems.
The Motorola Xoom is definitely eye catching and boasts an impressive performance. It was the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to go on sale. It has a 10.1 inch widescreen HD display and supports Flash, which is great for browsing the web as you’ll be able to view all sites with no problems. The HD display is also an advantage for watching movies on your tablet and you also have two cameras to make the most of. The back camera is a 5.0 megapixel and the front facing camera is a 2.0 megapixel camera, which is great for video calling. Overall, this tablet combines good performance, a good battery life and excellent key features, which is why we’ve included it in our best tablets list.
If you love 3D, then you’ll love the LG Optimus pad. This Android operated tablet allows you to record 3D videos that you can watch back in HD or in 3D on a compatible 3DTV. The only down side is that it doesn’t have a 3D screen. However it’s very slim and has an 8.9 inch touchscreen display. The tablet also has two 5.0 megapixel cameras and an internal memory of 32GB, which is highly useful for storing files and information on your tablet.
The HTC Flyer is a stunning tablet that’s simple to use. As well as an easy to navigate touchscreen, you also get a HTC Scribe digital pen that lets you take notes with audio snippets, highlight whilst reading ebooks and even edit photos. This is definitely one of the best tablets for having fun and being creative, as well as being very useful for working through your all important tasks. The tablet has a sleek 7.0 inch touchscreen and features HTC Watch, HTC’s own movie streaming service. With built in stereo speakers the HTC Flyer provides great viewing experiences.
The BlackBerry Playbook is the first BlackBerry tablet and is great for getting all your tasks done, as well as playing games and videos. You can choose from either the 16GB or 32GB variants, but with either one you’ve got plenty of space for all your data. This tablet also supports Flash 10.1, like the Motorola Xoom, so you can be sure that you will be getting the full internet experience. You also get both front and back facing cameras which is great for video calling and taking photos. Whatever you decide to use your tablet for, the 7.0 inch touchscreen is great for your viewing experience and is considered to be one of the best tablets currently.
