Readers’ Choice: You Pick the Best Tablet of 2010
You picked your favorite netbook: ASUS Eee PC 1215N. You voted for your favorite notebook: Sony VAIO Z. You even fought to help the BlackBerry Torch take home the prize for best smart phone of the year. But now is the time to give your support to the best tablet of 2010.
Some might call this the year of the tablet, thanks to the ever present iPad. But Apple was not the only game in town this year, and there’s no doubt that a larger flood of tablets is on the way. But talking strictly about 2010, we reviewed 14 tablets in all. Some of them were so bad we wouldn’t recommend them to an enemy, but a few were good enough to earn 3 stars or better. Those three contenders are here to compete against the Apple iPad. They include the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Archos 101, and the Viewsonic ViewPad 7. We also added in the ExoPC Slate to this mix on the standing that it garnered enormous support during our first annual Tablet World Series, despite its 2.5 star rating in our review. We considered including the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, but as its status of including the full Android Market is still merely rumor, it didn’t make the cut.
Now it’s time to make your selection. Choose wisely, encourage your friends to get in on the fun, and feel free to talk some friendly and good-humored smack in the comments below. Voting ends at 12:00 p.m. Eastern on Monday, December 27.
