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.

Taking Notes on the Fly: Springpad

You may already have a favorite note-taking app, Evernote, Microsoft OneNote, Catch, etc. But you should consider Springpad. You can create as many notebooks as you want with notes generated from text, audio, photos--even barcodes. As you type, Springpad autofills information culled from the Internet. For instance, make a note about a restaurant you'd like to try, and Springpad will add the restaurant's address, phone number, cuisine, etc. Springpad is social, too. You can invite others via email to contribute to your notebooks, and you can comment on each other's entries. My one gripe: I couldn't find a way to change a notebook's name after creating it.

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.
