Tablet usage has exploded in the past two years, largely on the back of the success of the original iPad. Most major manufacturers now have a tablet on the market and are trying to woo business users.
V3.co.uk has rounded up seven of the best and put them through their paces. For those yet to invest in a tablet, take a look at our head-to-head table and comparison table on page 5 to help you decide.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
The Tab 10.1 comes with the latest Android Honeycomb operating system and even has superior hardware specifications to the iPad 2.
The 10.1in 1,280 x 800 TFT screen is crisp and bright, with a wide viewing angle. This makes it excellent for video playback and browsing.
The device is powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and comes with 1GB of RAM, a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing webcam for conference calling.
Even though Android Honeycomb may take a little getting used to, the services offered by Google and the apps available in the market place make it a genuine challenger to the iPad 2.
The Galaxy Tab is yet to be made available in the UK, but pricing is expected to be between £500 and £600, depending on the amount of internal storage.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer
The Eee Pad Transformer is the best option for users who are looking to get an Android tablet/netbook hybrid.
In terms of specifications, the Transformer is up there with the high-end tablets. The 10.1in screen comes with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, and the device is powered by the familiar 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor. There is 1GB of RAM and users are able to choose between 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.
Additional connectivity comes in the form of a Micro SD card reader (SD card reader on Keyboard dock) and two USB ports on the keyboard.
The Transformer is ideally suited to users who are comfortable with using cloud-based services. The keyboard dock is the standout feature and converts the device into a netbook, making it one of the more useful out-of-the-box tablets on the market.
Although this is the best Android hybrid on the market, it's not quite going to replace a work PC or a laptop, but is capable of replacing a netbook.
