Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10’s superslim, unique design makes it easy to hold.The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 hardware is actually not bad for its price, and the faux-metal finish makes it feel even nicer. The glass display and body give it a halfway decent feel.The Yoga Tablet is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a few modifications.The general style of Android has been changed including fonts, buttons etc and while the default looks a bit on the childish side, there are a couple of better themes to choose from.The opposite side of the power button is the 3.5mm headset jack, and above that is the volume button and a small microphone.When the device is facing you in landscape orientation, you'll also notice there are two front-facing speakers. If you purchase the tablet, you will have already noticed the Dolby logo on the box.In Lenovo's own words, the Yoga Tablet 10 has "epic battery life" and at a quoted 18 hours, it sounds like this may be the case. This figure is gained with a pretty varied usage though, rather than a more traditional video playback test – 12 hours are spent reading an eBook.It’s also only $300.
But, The tablet’s low-resolution screen looks fuzzy and oversaturated, and the heavily modified operating system is downright ugly.
The bottom line: Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even the low cost. Specifications

HP TouchPad HP webOS is a genuinely impressive operating system. Although some tout it as being intuitive, we're not sure that's really its strength.The HP TouchPad uses Palm's unique WebOS interface and delivers Adobe Flash-enabled Web browsing, Beats audio enhancement, and impressive compatibility with third-party calendar, messaging, and e-mail servicesThe screen is one of this tablet's stand out features, though. It's the same size (9.7in) and resolution (1,024 x 768 pixels) as the iPad 2 and is as within a gnat's whisker of being as good quality with great viewing angles, bright colours, and good contrast. .Battery life according to HP is 9 hours for continuous video playback, and in our test (WiFi on, Bluetooth off, video looping) we came close to that: just over eight and a half hours. That puts it slightly ahead of the Motorola Xoom but again behind the Tab and iPad 2.
But, The TouchPad has a thick, smudgy design, offers no rear camera or HD video capture, includes a limited app selection, and its unique cards system of multitasking isn't as fully utilized as it could be.
The bottom line: The TouchPad would have made a great competitor for the original iPad, but its design, features, and speed put it behind today's crop of tablet heavyweights. Specifications

Weight1.6 lbs Price;$257.49 to $265.99 VS Sony Xperia Tablet S The Sony Xperia Tablet S has a comfortable, high-quality design, a sharp-looking screen, storage expansion, and potential as a universal remote alternative.Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor is inside most of the tablets I've tested in the last six months, and they pretty much all work the same. The Xperia Tablet S is fast and responsive, and is particularly adept for playing games — I'm getting really good at Shadowgun as I test more and more tablets, and it's as smooth and impressive on the Xperia Tablet's display as any I've tried.With a 6,000mAh battery, the Sony Xperia Tablet S doesn’t have a huge battery. However, as its screen is so relatively low-tech, it doesn’t really need much more. Set to play video, the tablet’s battery will last in excess of eight hours, which is decent enough for a tablet of this size.
But, Unfortunately Wi-Fi currently shuts off whenever the tablet sleeps, waking the tablet from sleep takes way too long, and its screen flickers intermittently. Price is a bit high for what's offered.
The bottom line: The Xperia Tablet S has an excellent design, but there are cheaper alternatives that provide similar and better tablet experiences. Specifications
