Top Tablets in 2012

The new iPad may be the most popular tablet choice, but it’s certainly not the only option. Digital media giants are scrambling to release their own version of the tablet, and some have proved pretty successful. Some are more affordable than the iPad, too. Here are four tablets that might give Apple a run for their money:

1)Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime – Heralded as the best full-featured Android tablet to date, thinner and even slightly lighter than the iPad. The Prime features a crystal clear 1080p display, and its 8-megapixel camera beats most other tablets in clarity and color. As close to the iPad as you can get – maybe better. (32 GB, $499-$570)

2) Sony Tablet S – Sony’s rebuttal to the iPad is especially sweet for you tech nerds out there. Featuring a sleek design, an exclusive app collection, PlayStation certification for mobile gaming, DLNA video and music streaming, it’s hard to beat this tablet in looks and usability. Its integrated IR universal remote lets you play from a distance, too. – (32 GB, $499)

3) Barnes & Noble Nook  – No, the Nook is not just an e-reader. It’s a full-fledged 7-inch tablet that’s much more affordable than its counterparts. With built-in Wi-Fi, 16GB of built-in storage, quick web browser and a microSD expansion slot, it fits a lot into its smaller package. Nook also boasts a vibrant selection of over 1000 apps, including Hulu Plus and Netflix capabilities. Perhaps the most shocking feature is its Flash Player support – surprise! (16 GB, $246 – $270)

4) Samsung Galaxy Tab 10 – This bad boy is thinner and lighter than the iPad. It also boasts front and back cameras and dual side speakers. You can’t get any closer to the iPad than this. (16 GB, $399 – $482)
