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.

Going to the Movies: Flixster

Aside from Roger Ebert, there are few film critics I trust. That's one reason why Flixster, with its integration of Rotten Tomatoes scores, is an essential app for movie fans. Rotten Tomatoes aggregates reviews from multiple critics into one overall rating. The Flixster app, nicely laid out for Android tablets, allows you to sort current movies by box office results and theaters (by location or name), read reviews and plot synopses, and see what's coming out on DVD. For each film, you can also watch trailers and get showtimes. Unfortunately, the Android app lacks features that the iOS app offers, such as the ability to sort current films by their Rotten Tomatoes score.

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.
