Best 10 inch tablets

We round-up the best 10in tablets on the market

Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in iPad and iPad 2 tablets, and most of the competition has followed suit with similar sized 10.1in models.

Pitched as ideal media consumption devices, 10in tablets are said to be the ideal tech device that sits between a smartphone and a notebook — large enough to work comfortably on, but light enough to carry around on a day to day basis.

Popular 10in tablets include the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, sold exclusively through Vodafone, the Motorola Xoom, launching initially on Telstra and then available through Optus, and the Acer Iconia A500, sold through retailers including Harvey Norman and Myer.

Upcoming releases are set to include the thinner Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (not to be confused with the current Galaxy Tab 10.1v), ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider models, and the webOS-powered HP TouchPad.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is without a doubt the best Android tablet on the market. It's thinner and lighter than Apple's iPad 2, despite having a larger screen, and offers most of the functions and features of its competitors. The lack of external storage is a pain, as is the fact there is no HDMI-out connection, but the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a superb piece of industrial design and so far, the only real credible alternative to the iPad.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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