Despite being the dominant player in the relatively new tablet market, there is set to be plenty of valid alternatives to the iPad 2, particularly Android tablets.
The newest of these is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which will launch in Australia in mid-April through Vodafone. Samsung is serious about the tablet market — the company will also launch the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and a thinner, lighter version of Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the same name. Both of these new Android tablets will hit Australia sometime between July and September.

It's a shame the HP TouchPad has so many issues in its current form, because it's an impressive device to use on the whole.

But a chunky design, sluggish performance, a lack of dedicated apps and software that is still very much a work in progress makes it tough to pick over competitors.
