    Wouldn't really call the Tab 'Pricey' anymore. Less than £350 in several places. 16gb MicrosD cards can be had for less than £20. Gives a 32gb tablet for way less than an Ipad.

    Hmm – what influenced you to move the Advent Vega from third on the top tablet list to 4th? thus allowing the Galaxy Tab into a higher position?

    Was it because you panned them for a 16% return rate?

    I think this is a pretty good list for the moment, in about the order I'd put them. Anyone looking at spending a chunk on a new Android tablet would probably be well advised to wait a few months, though. It seems almost every manufacturer has a slate on the way in the next month or two, most of them running Honeycomb which is specifically designed for tablets rather than Eclair or Froyo which are not.

    If the Galaxy Tab will not get Honeycomb, I would say it is not that high. Yes is a good device but it will grow old quickly. I think the Vega will be getting Honeycomb as it is duel core processor, this will hopefully put this at the top.…/

      You're probably right Mark – but we only rate products on what they can do now. If the Vega gets that Honeycomb release we'll reassess immediately.

    Looking forward to the BlackBerry Playbook and the Motorola Xoom. Though I hope Motorola don't price it around the £700 mark. That would be ridiculous!
