Whereas the original Galaxy Note was somewhere between a phone and tablet, its enlarged 10.1-inch sibling is clearly in the latter category. The Galaxy Note 10.1 runs Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and features the same S-Pen stylus support and handwriting recognition found in the original Note.

Description

The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will have a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 LCD and a 1GHz dual-core processor running a Touch Wiz-skinned version of Android 4.0. The 9.7mm-thick tablet has 1GB of RAM and both rear and front facing cameras.

Successor to the popular iPad 2 and furthering Apple's push towards post-PC computing, the "new iPad" features a Retina display at the same 9.7-inch size as its predecessor but with doubled pixel density. The rear camera shares the optics system of the iPhone 4S for better photo quality. Optional 4G LTE is another addition, with theoretical download speeds of up to 72Mbps.

The Iconica Tab A700 by Acer is their top of the line tablet. It has a 1920 x 1200 resolution running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. A Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core with a clock speed of 1.3GHz powers the front end.

The Asus Transformer Pad TF300T is the value option of Asus' convertible-tablet range. Like its more powerful siblings, it features a 10.1-inch IPS display, but this time with a 1280 x 800 resolution. It's powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal storage.

Unveiled at IFA 2011 as the AT200, Toshiba's Excite 10 LE, in terms of thickness, is the antithesis of Toshiba's earlier 10-inch Thrive tablet. The Excite is a 10.1-inch tablet running Android Honeycomb on a 1280 x 800-resolution display and powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4 processor paired with 1GB of RAM. It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, GPS, and a Micro HDMI port for streaming HD media to an HDTV or monitor.
