Tablet Test: all the scores

Published

on

It is no surprise that the iPad came out on top of our tablet table in the Ten Question Tablet Test. But it is surprising how close the race has been. See the full comparison table of the seven tablets tested so far.

The Apple iPad 2 has emerged as the highest-rated tablet in the Gadget Ten Question Tablet Test. That is no surprise. The real surprise is just how close the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 came to beating it. As it is, the Galaxy fell down only on price, while the iPad slipped only slightly on multi-tasking. It retrieved ground through general excellence across most other areas. If Samsung drops it’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 price to below that of the iPad, it would become our most highly recommended tablet.

Only two other tablets scored 70% or above, namely the Asus eee Pad and the HTC Flyer. Both would be helped up significantly by a competitive price, while the HTC Flyer is lean on battery life and the eee Pad on effective controls. The Flyer is by far the best performing 7‚ tablet, and a competitive price would also make it a major contender.

The Ten Question Tablet Test has been an experiment in gaining a full grasp on each tablet by asking the right questions. In the next phase of our tablet coverage, we’ll amend the questions, combining some, removing some, and adding some. We are open to suggestions of appropriate questions.
