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's picks for the top 10.

Instant Messaging: LilyPad HD

Instant messaging with Facebook friends / Google Talk buddies just got more addictive, thanks to LilyPad HD. The app's hook, your chat window stays open, regardless of other apps being used. Watching yet another YouTube video in which a dog plays the piano? You can LOL about it with your buddies while watching. When it's time to focus on actual work, you can click the "X" to make your Buddy List go away. It would be nice if LilyPad HD supported other chat services, such as AOL Instant Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger. But the app is barely out of beta, so maybe these and other chat services are on the to-do list.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
