Pantech Element

Yet another attempt at getting a share of the tablet market, but the Pantech Element strikes out.

Toshiba Thrive 7

Less than stellar battery life along with a high MSRP for a 7 inch tablet may keep buyers away from this otherwise excellent performer.

Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2

The Motorola Droid Xyboard 8.2 tablet is nice with 4G speeds, but is too expensive for people to be interested in.

Motorola Xoom 2

The Razr-inspired Xoom 2 comes with many improvements over its predecessor. However, quad-core tablets like the Asus Prime already heading to store shelves make it very difficult to recommend the Xoom 2 over both current and future generation tablets.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime

The Transformer Prime is sets a new bar for Android tablets featuring a quad-core processor, top-notch camera, excellent screen, and optional keyboard dock that can "transform" the tablet into laptop/tablet hybrid.

Asus Eee Pad Slider

The Slider's slide-out keyboard makes it a unique tablet in a world full of iPad imitators. However, the bulk added by the keyboard makes the Slider take a back seat to the majority of other tablets, including its big brother the Transformer.

T-Mobile G-Slate

The T-Mobile G-Slate is a solid, thin Honeycomb tablet that is brought down by its high price.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

Sporting nearly identical specs as its slighty bigger brother, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 unfortunately has a shorter battery life to accompany its more portable and comfortable size.

Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet

The Nook Tablet has great specs for its price and is a solid competitor to the Kindle Fire, offering a superior eReading experience and greater storage options. However, the Fire currently edges out the Nook in several other key areas including price.

Amazon Kindle Fire

If you go in expecting the Kindle Fire to be an iPad or Honeycomb killer, you are setting yourself up for a huge disappointment. However, for what it is, the Fire is an excellent high-end media tablet with enough features to blow away the majority of other tablets in its price range.
