Everything we loved about the original, including stylus support and 3G connectivity has been delivered on this new full-fledged Windows experience device.

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Microsoft met some resistance with its first Surface tablet, but that isn't stopping the company from making a second attempt, this time with a full copy of Windows 8. Where the Surface RT left would-be tableteers confused with its partial app support, the Surface Pro is Windows on far more familiar territory: Intel silicon inside, and the full flexibility of a regular PC, simply with a touchscreen up-front. Of course, that also brings with it the same issues that have always plagued Windows-based tablets: battery life, weight, heat, and software usability. Does Microsoft's own-brand slate finally put those criticisms to rest, and is this the tablet you should have in your bag? Read on for our full review.

Acer Iconia W510 Review

Acer Iconia W510 Review

This week we're having a look at the Acer Iconia W500 series, specifically in the model tagged Iconia W510-1422 with full Windows 8 and multiple modes of computing action. This machine works as a tablet, as a notebook with its keyboard dock (in the box with this model), and with 295 degrees of twist in its hinge - a third "presentation" mode, complete with the extra battery power of the dock in-tact. This machine takes full Windows 8 to the tablet universe with a rather solid setup and a base cost of right around $750 USD - if that sounds like a deal to you, make with the tapping.

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

When a mobile carrier like AT&T picks up a device for sale that's as massive as the Samsung ATIV Smart PC with Windows 8, you've got to wonder who would be heading out to the same location they picked up their smartphone to pick up a PC. In this case it's more of a cross-over situation in which AT&T already carries tablets, and is here easing the public into the idea that they're going to be holding larger PC machines with a half-and-half beast like the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, itself a convertible tablet that can also be a notebook when you pick up the right docking accessory. At the moment we're limited to the tablet bit as the two are sold separately and the lower piece isn't up at AT&T quite yet.

Sony XPERIA Tablet S Review

It might be time for you to take another look at one of the oddest tablets released in the year 2012, that being the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor-packing Sony XPERIA Tablet S. This machine is not the most high-resolution nor the most undeniably powerful tablet machine on the market, but given its connectivity options and its existence in the Sony ecosystem, might it be the perfect tablet for your Sony-loving self? If the connections don't convince you, the folded-over magazine shape just might.

Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Review

If it were ever time for another Android tablet with a thin frame and a 10.1-inch display, it's now, and it's Huawei who's bringing this device into the world. Huawei makes a valiant effort at creating a tablet with the MediaPad 10 FHD, and it does indeed bring on an impressive package, especially for media playback. If you're looking for the most massively impressive tablet on the market - this isn't it - but if you do have this device on your radar and wonder if it's worth the cash, let me give you a spoiler: it's definitely nice to watch a movie on, but that's just about where it ends.

Nexus 10 Review

Nexus 10 Review

Google's Nexus 7 demonstrated that the search giant should be taken seriously in affordable tablets; now, the Nexus 10 has arrived to prove Android has big-screen star quality. Offering a display that out-Retinas Apple's iPad and no shortage of top-tier specifications, the Samsung-made Nexus 10 also manages to do all that while undercutting the iPad 4 by $100. Android tablets have always had more of a problem than ticking the spec sheet, though, so does the combination of Jelly Bean 4.2 and the Nexus 10 mark a real turning point?

iPad Review (4th Gen): Big tablet, Bigger speed

Apple's new iPad with Retina display played a bit-role at the iPad mini launch, presenting a familiar face to the crowd and packing a potent new chipset inside. The 9.7-inch tablet has already cornered much of the market, with the late-2012 polish basically pushing the slate to the pinnacle of Apple's processor development, and outfitting it with a Lightning connector to match the iPhone 5.
