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.

Description

The Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is an Android Honeycomb (3.2) tablet that can be coupled with an optional keyboard dock. The Transformer Prime features a 10.1-inch Super IPS display with a 1280 x 800-resolution, a backside-illuminated 8-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.4 aperture plus a 1.3-megapixel front cam, and is the first to be powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3, quad-core mobile processor formerly known as Kal-El.

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.

Thinner, faster, more powerful, and packing dual cameras and a dual-core A5 chip, the iPad 2 is the second generation of Apple's popular tablet. After the announcement of the new iPad, the price of the iPad 2 was dropped down to $399 for a 16GB model.

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.
