- Asus Transformer Pad TF701T - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
Despite its bulky design, the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T is one of the best 10-inch Android tablet values available, but it's worth your time to also look closely at its competition.
- Dell Venue 8 Pro - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes close to being a great pocket-size mini-PC, but a misplaced button and missing accessories feel like unnecessary errors.
- Asus Transformer Book T100 - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
The Asus Transformer Book T100 revives the Netbook value proposition (and Netbook usability issues) in a budget-price 10-inch laptop that doubles as a tablet. You won�t love it, but for sheer bang for the buck, it�s hard to beat.
- Nokia Lumia 2520 (black) - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
Unless you want a Windows RT tablet with cellular connection, skip the Lumia 2520 and get the Surface 2 instead.
- Amazon Kindle Fire HD (2013) - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
The 2013 Kindle Fire HD works perfectly as an e-reader with a few extra tablet features, but users looking to take full advantage of Amazon's ecosystem should pay more for the Fire HDX.
- LG G Pad 8.3 - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
With its speedy and reliable performance, the LG G Pad 8.3 is a solid small-sized tablet, but it can't outpace the smoother, less expensive Google Nexus 7.
- Apple iPad Air - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
Functionally, the iPad Air is nearly identical to last year�s model, offering only faster performance and better video chatting. But factor in design and aesthetics, and the iPad Air is on another planet. It�s the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.
- Microsoft Surface Pro 2 (Windows 8.1) - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer.
- Microsoft Surface 2 (Windows RT) - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
The Microsoft Surface 2 is great for getting work done, but those looking for extensive app support (beyond Office) will find top Apple, Android, and Amazon tablets to be better options.
- Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition, 16GB, Wi-Fi, white) - CNET Reviews - Most Recent Handheld Devices
The improved S Pen goes a long way to making this high-end tablet worth the extra cost, but if you're not sold on the stylus, it's easy to find a better deal.
