Tablets have taken computing world by storm. They have become the latest trend that gives us internet capabilities, access to email, video chat and allows to capture images and video while on the go. They also give us control by navigating around the device using the touchscreen display or stylus pen. Here is our list of Top 10 Tablets for 2012

Orange Tahiti

10. Orange Tahiti

This is Orange’s first own-brand tablet. The seven-inch screen is pretty much identical to Huawei’s MediaPad but is highly affordable on an Orange contract – and has a great look and feel. The screen is amazing. It’s speedy and effective, though the operating system is pretty much vanilla Android. It also uses the earlier Honeycomb version, not the latest Ice Cream Sandwich, for now, at least.

Kindle Touch

9. Kindle Touch

As e-book readers go, e-ink (the black-and-white screen technology that’s easy to read in bright sunlight) is hard to beat. This new model has a touch-sensitive interface which is more convenient than the basic Kindle, though it’s £20 pricier, thicker and heavier as well. Page-turning can be a little sluggish but this is still highly usable.

Samsung Galaxy Note

8. Samsung Galaxy Note

The smallest tablet or the biggest phone? Either way, the 5.3in screened Note is a great size: the supplied stylus makes it easy to scribble notes and the display is big enough to prove immersive when you’re watching video. It’s fast and effective – and unlike the other tablets here, you can make calls on it. Though you might feel a bit of a ‘nana.

Asus TRansformer Prime

7. Asus Transformer Prime

This is the tablet for the person who wants it all: it comes with a detachable keyboard so you don’t have to type on glass. It’s not as versatile as the iPad when it comes to playing back video but the additional battery contained in the keyboard means it goes on and on.

Blackberry PlayBook

6. BlackBerry PlayBook

The seven-inch-screened PlayBook looks opulent and classy. The display hass very high resolution, so video playback is especially good. A recent update has delivered a native email client which means it has the fastest, most secure email delivery around. Apps are still too sparse, but the operating system is delightful.

Acer Iconia Tab A510

5. Acer Iconia Tab A510

This is a highly usable, affordable Android tablet (with cool Olympic branding on the back). It’s light, fast and neatly designed, and is a stand-out among the many tablets vying for attention. The cameras aren’t that great but that’s the worst part of this cute, great-to-use tablet.

Sony Tablet S

4. Sony Tablet S

Among Android tablets, Sony’s is the best-designed, with its case styled to look like a folded newspaper. This makes one side thicker than the other, so the weight sits more comfortably in the hand. As well as usual tablet functionality, you can use it as a universal remote control, transfer content wirelessly to an internet-enabled Sony TV and play PlayStation games on its 9.4-inch screen.

Google Nexus 7

3. Google Nexus 7

Google’s own-brand 7in tablet, made in conjunction with Asus, is a winner. It’s light, has a great screen and the latest Jelly Bean OS is easily the slickest Android yet. Google has pulled out all the stops for an appealing, and highly affordable tablet. It’s only pipped by the iPad because there’s no 3G, no rear camera and no expandable memory.

Apple iPad 2

2. Apple iPad 2

Apple’s tablet beauty from last year is now available at a reduced price in its 16GB capacity version – a great way to get an iPad for less. It has a nimble processor and highly attractive aluminium casing. There are higher-resolution screens – like the new iPad – but this 9.7in one looks pristine and effective. It’s slim, manageable and a joy to use.

Apple iPad

1. Apple iPad

The 2012 edition is the best iPad yet, with a stunning Retina display that’s so high-resolution it needs to be seen to be believed. The third-generation model is cosmetically similar to last year’s, though slightly thicker and heavier. The camera is now usable and there are other extras like Dictation so you don’t have to tap the glass to type an email. It remains the easiest-to-use tablet with 200,000 dedicated apps.
