After dozens of reviews, countless hours of testing, and endless nights spent poking and prodding at the latest tablets, we finally made our picks for the Best Tablets of 2011. And while we believe these are the best tablets available today, we want to hear from you to determine an ultimate winner.
While there were still a fair share of craptablets around this year, the iPad 2 forced other tablet makers to up their game. First, there was the budget-friendly Kindle Fire, which provides a solid multimedia experience for just $199. Lenovo proved that Android tablets could be business-friendly with its ThinkPad Tablet, which included a stylus for quickly jotting down notes and encryption software. Samsung released Galaxy Tabs in an array of sizes, but the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Wi-Fi stood out from the pack due to its light weight and snappy performance. Finally, ASUS’s Eee Pad Transformer Prime straddles the line between notebook and tablet thanks to its attachable keyboard.
The tablet category certainly wasn’t lacking innovation this year, but which one of these deserves the crown for Best Tablet of 2011? You tell us. This poll will be open till next week, ending on Tuesday, December 27th at 3:00 p.m. EST.
Update: Thanks for your participation, everyone! The poll is now closed. Check back tomorrow for results.
