Best 7 inch tablets

We round-up the best 7in tablets on the market

Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in iPad and iPad 2 tablets, but this doesn't mean you aren't left with other choices.

For many users, the iPad's 9.7in screen makes it too large — some consumers would feel more comfortable using a smaller tablet with a 7in screen. This means that it can easily slip into a handbag, or suit jacket pocket.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab kick-started the 7in tablet market, but a host of devices have followed including the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon's Kindle Fire is an impressive looking 7in tablet that runs a customised version of Android, providing access to a wide selection of Amazon content including movies, TV shows, books, magazines and newspapers. However, it's only available in the US, at least initially.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
