Whether or not it is an iPad killer, the new tablet?

Everytime when some one realease its new tablet we think Whether or not it is an iPad killer, the new tablet — supposedly New modified release of Kindle fire created some waves. But is Amazon entering an already saturated market? Take a look at the top 10 tablets that have captured our attention most recently. Which is your favorite so far? Let us know in the comments below.

1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Hot on the heels of its first tablet, the Galaxy Tab, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at MWC. Unlike its predecessor, this one runs the latest version of the Android operating system: Android 3.0 or Honeycomb. Samsung claims that the new Tab 10.1 weighs 599g, which is considerably lighter than the Apple iPad.

The Tab 10.1 will have a rear-facing 8Mp camera and a front-facing 2Mp camera for self portraits and video calling.

2. Sony Tablet S

As a veritable mega-giant in the consumer tech universe, Sony’s landing on Planet Tablet was always going to be interesting. Blasting off alongside the fold-in-half Tablet P, the Tablet S has a unique wedge-shaped design and top-end specs. It’s a very decent and refined tablet, and has the unique feature of having access to original PlayStation games. The only issue is that it’s not as tidy as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and not as versatile as the Transformer. Apart from that, it’s one of the best Android tablets out there.

4. Asus Eee Pad Transforme

What makes the 10-inch Eee Pad Transformer unique is its design. Unlike other tablets we’ve seen, this one comes with a detachable keyboard that effectively turns it into a netbook. It even folds into a clamshell for easy transportation, and features a touchpad for navigation without using the touchscreen.

5. Motorolla Xoom

The Motorola Xoom is one of the second-generation Android tablets that the tech world is getting very excited about. Packing Nvidia’s super-powerful Tegra 2 chip and running the tablet-friendly Android 3.0 OS, the Xoom is going to be big.

6. Blackberry Playbook

The BlackBerry PlayBook is designed to be mobile and business-friendly. That means, at 130x194mm, the device is small enough to hold with one hand, slip in a laptop bag side pouch, and even carry around all day to meetings. The problem’s start, though, with the lack of an email app, the dependence on owning a BlackBerry smartphone and a terminal lack of apps. The Playbook is powerful and has brilliant multitasking capabilities, but for now it’s one to watch rather than one to buy.

7. HTC Flyer

HTC has decided to release the tablet running on Android Gingerbread, which will upset some purists that believe these tablets should run on Honeycomb. However, the HTC Sense overlay deals with that, offering a new range of widgets and content to mask the fact it’s running older versions of the OS (although a Honeycomb update is imminent). The new tablet has a 7-inch LCD screen, and comes with an aluminium unibody shell that feels very nice in the hand.

8. Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet

On first sight this looks like another run-of-the-mill 11.6-inch netbook. But Lenovo has far more than the netbook market in its sights. The screen can be unclasped from its hard outer-shell, becoming a touchscreen Android tablet. On the downside the interface isn’t quite as slick as the iPad and images on the screen of the model we saw were susceptible to fading if not viewed head-on.

9. HP Touchpad

The HP TouchPad is less polished than the iPad, with a smaller range of impressive third-party apps. Yes, it’s got features that the iPad lacks, but so do the Android tablets, and they have a bigger app selection, too. The interface appears more polished than many Android tablets, but in operation that doesn’t really stand up. It’s also lagging behind in many hardware features, such as HDMI output.

10. Acer Iconia Tab A500

Acer’s Android tablet is good looking and offers similar performance to the other Android 3.0 tablets on show here. We like it, but it’s missing a bit of sparkle and there’s not much on show here that we can cling on to. It’s not as stylish as the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and doesn’t offer anything different like the Transformer does with its keyboard
