Top 10 Android tablets

7 inch Android tablets

7 inch screen, light weight tablet, is great for reading and big enough  for easy surfing. Many current apps won’t fill the screen as nicely as on a phone but developers will adopt to these form factors too. Not gonna fit inside your pocket but not too heavy in your bag. These new tablets have capacitive touch screens compared the many « craptablets » around.
 

Samsung Galaxy Tab – €600 – 900
– 7 inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touch
– 1Ghz Samsung Cortex A8
– Wifi, 3G, A-GPS and bluetooth
– TV-Out
– Front and rear cameras
– Android Market and Google Apps

Samsung made huge buzz over their tablet. Now that we have seen it, tested it and wow’ed it’s great features, we can only cry for cheaper price. It looks like Sammy is priced towards carrier deals, so you may get it later for €99 or $199 with 3G contract. It has it all but if price without contract doesn’t come down it might be too much. Great accessory line.

Viewsonic Viewpad 7 – €399
– 7 inch 800 x 480 capacitive touch
– 600Mhz Qualcomm Snapdragon
– Wifi, 3G, A-GPS and bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front and rear cameras
– Android Market and Google Apps

It looks like Viewsonic got their pricing good from the start. You should see it soon cheaper than $399 from many different places and different brands. 600Mhz cpu and 800 x 480resolution looks bad compared to Sammy but I think they are not deal breakers.

Archos 70 Internet Tablet – $274
– 7 inch 800 x 480 capacitive touch
– 1Ghz TI Cortex A8
– Wifi, bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front cam



Archos 70 has many things right, specially pricing. Lack of Android Market and their decision  to use software keys and not hardware buttons are let downs. Great kick stand, nice design and support for multiple video files are goodies you won’t find on other tablets.

StreamTV Elocity A7 – $399
– 7 inch 800 x 480 capacitive touch
– 1Ghz Tegra 2 Cortex A9
– Wifi, 3G option and bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front cam



Compal has been showing it from January and Aigo branded it too. Now StreamTV is bringing it to USA and their pricing is looking ok. No Android Market and other Gstuff but it shouldn’t take long when it’s hacked to eat anything you throw in it. Great video power due Tegra 2. It should appear soon on other countries too with different branding.

Now available at Amazon.com

10 inch Android tablets

They are big, you can fit 2 portrait 7 inchers side by side for their width. Best for sofa surfing, web, videos and pictures. A bit too big and heavy for bed reading. Many apps will look weird with big fonts on these big screen. No Android Market nor Google apps on any of then yet.

Archos 101 Internet Tablet – $300
– 10 inch 1024 x 600 capacitive
– 1Ghz TI Cortex A8
– Wifi, bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front cam

101 is grown up Archos 70. It has the same video file support and kick stand but now bigger screen and higher resolution. If you want it big, this one is the cheapest. No Android market is a bummer but side loading / hacking it might be ok for some. Should be easily available everywhere soon.

Toshiba Folio 100 – €399
– 10 inch 1024 x 600 capacitive 
– 1Ghz Tegra 2 Cortex A9
– Wifi, 3G option and bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front cam


 

Specialty on this device is Toshiba’s Places, which should make sharing content over different screens easier. This tablet has horse power to surf with pleasure and play HD videos either on itself or on big screen TV. It should be the first available 10 inch Android tablet with 3G.

E-Noa Interpad – €399
– 10 inch 1024 x 600 capacitive
– 1Ghz Nvidia Tegra 2 Cortex A9
– Wifi, bluetooth
– HDMI out




Again, Tegra 2 video power. They are also making a 3G version with Android Market but this one still lacks both. As it’s based on ODM design, you should see it branded with different names too. Should be great allrounder on it’s category.

5 inch Android tablets

These are best for pockets. Bigger than phone size helps surfing the web and apps don’t look too weird. My personal favorites for reading while traveling, casual surfing and social networks. Dell Streak is the only one with capacitive screen, Gtuff and 3G, which shows on it’s pricing too.
 

Dell Streak – $549
– 4.8 inch 800 x 480 capacitive touch
– 1Ghz Snapdragon
– Wifi, 3G, A-GPS and bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Front and Rear cameras
– Android Market and Google Apps

First tablet to get full access to all Google apps and Android Market. I like it a lot. It fits in your pocket but I think it’s a bit big for all-round phone. Great for data centric phone use. Big accessory line, good quality and nicely building community support. Expensive compared to Archos offerings but with 3G and Gstuff has way more mobile value.Great for car navigation too.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet – €229
– 4.8 inch 800 x 480 resistive touch
– 800Mhz TI Cortex A8
– Wifi, GPS and bluetooth
– TV out

Olden but golden. I have been using A5IT now for almost a year. It was buggy and unstable but Archos gave us almost 15 updates which made it a good allrounder. I use it for ebook reading with Kindel app. Great support for different Video formats, good kickstand.

Archos 43 Internet Tablet – $199
– 4.3 inch 854 x 480 resistive touch
– 1Ghz TI Cortex A8
– Wifi, bluetooth
– HDMI out
– Rear camera

Let down for me, as I was waiting for 3G and A-GPS device with capacitive screen. Pricing makes me feel a bit better, specially as they added rear camera on it. Good pocketable entry level tablet with huge support for different video formats. Works as a mouse pad when connected to TV.
