In Pictures: Top 10 Android tablet apps

Android tablets often get overshadowed by Apple's mighty iPad and have to fight for market share - and attention from developers. But there are some great Android apps optimized for tablets out there. Here are CIO.com's picks for the top 10.

Checking the Weather: The Weather Channel

Weather geeks have no shortage of great mobile apps--but The Weather Channel app is one of the most complete. You get the 411 on what's happening right now in a given city--including the wind speed, UV index, visibility, dew point, and humidity. Looking ahead, the app gives you hourly forecasts; a 36-hour prediction; and the 10-day outlook. Weather maps, video forecasts, severe weather alerts, pollen reports, and local weather-related tweets complete the picture. This app tells you everything but the temperature of the roast in the oven.

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.
