Best upcoming tablets in 2012

The best tablets still to come in 2012, from Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 to the Acer Iconia Tab A700.

Apple's new iPad may still be the dominant force in the tablet market, but there is plenty of choice from other manufacturers.

We round up the best upcoming tablets in 2012, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and its "S-Pen" stylus, to the Acer Iconia Tab A700, which boasts a high resolution of 1920x1200.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The S Pen certainly adds a new dimension to the Galaxy Note 10.1 and we like the bundled apps that Samsung has included. Once you look past the S Pen, however, you're left with a tablet that doesn't offer anything particularly exceptional. Ultimately, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is an average Android tablet with a stylus. That just isn't good enough in such a competitive market.

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.
