Best tablets of MWC 2011: People's Pick (Poll)

Best tablets of MWC 2011: People's Pick (Poll)

Just last month at CES we witnessed the first wave of the upcoming tablet ocean, and now a mere month later, at MWC, we got a sense of how big this really is. Tablets were literally all over the congress – starting with major producers announcing their devices and ending with smaller companies pushing slates on the booming market. The majority of them – of course – come with Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but there were some like the HTC Flyer, running on an earlier version of the robotic OS.

There are companies however who took the steep road to differentiation with a different OS like the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G with support for LTE and HSPA+, which has a beautiful QNX-based OS. Some, like the ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro even went for dual boot Windows and Android. But which OS do you prefer? And what about the preferred size of the tablet? Let us know where your mind guides you when it comes to the latest tablets!

Which was the best tablet at MWC 2011?

BlackBerry PlayBook 4G
HP TouchPad
T-Mobile G-Slate / LG Optimus Pad
Motorola XOOM
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
HTC Flyer
Acer Iconia Tab A100
Acer Iconia Tab A500
ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro
Toshiba tablet

The ViewSonic is awesome for running Android on top of Win7, the XOOM has 32GB of memory built in, and the Toshiba has all the connectivity you can want EXCEPT that they traded microUSB for mini for some reason. Can I get just get a combo of all 3 please?

Almost forgot that the Toshiba is the only one that has the speakers placed in a decent spot. Toshiba FTW.

I would like to have some opportunity to try the different products out before making a decision. Kind of like what staff were able to do. Otherwise, it is basically a beauty contest.

I strongly think that an "smart tablet user" prefers a lot of conectivity (HDMI 1.4, anyone?). Motorola XOOM definitely has the best specs.

HP Touchpad is my number one pick. With its Touch-to-share ability in use with the Pre3 that's a truly killer feature, especially with webOS' awesome multitasking. Right now I have an Archos 101 which is pretty handy and the amount of free apps is awesome, but Android has never had the multitasking ability of webOS. One of the only drawbacks of the Touchpad is all the pay apps in webOS. I'm so used to Androids free apps that add functionality. I don't know I'm pretty torn between Android and webOS.

I think The BEST tablet in MWC 2011 was LG Optimus PAD. The 3D experience with that was fantastic! LG was fail to follow the smart trend, but they could fly high with 3D feature.

Wow....Big Shock... LG Optimus Pad and the Lg Optimus 3D both voted as top model... Great come back of Lg.. That's pretty impressive, thinking about LG's last year going striaght down, thought they would never possibly catch up. i guess many think positively of the 3D functionality..
