Best iPad alternatives

Looking for a tablet that's not an iPad? Here are the best tablets without an Apple logo!

Are you in the market for a new tablet that's not an iPad? It may seem like Apple's the only player in this space but that's certainly not true.

Although most other tablets aren't as popular as the iPad, there are plenty of valid alternatives. Whether it's Google's excellent Nexus 7 for a compact alternative, or the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity for a notebook style experience, here are the best tablets on the market without an Apple logo.

Google Nexus 7

When you combine the Nexus 7's low price with its excellent performance, it's easy to see why it represents such outstanding value. The Nexus 7 stacks up superbly against rival devices that command a price tag well above its $249-$299 asking price. The lack of removable storage and some other minor quirks are downsides, but this is one of the best Android tablets on the market.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
