New tablets 2012 - what's coming up?
This top 10 of tablets is by no means the be all and end all. There are plenty of new tablets to get excited about this year, which could challenge the new iPad for top spot.
If none of the tablets in our top 10 take your fancy then maybe you will be enticed by the ones we could see later this year.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
Now here's a real competitor to the 7.9-inch iPad mini. Samsung is unsurprisingly taking the fight to Apple on every front and the Galaxy Note 8.0, complete with S-Pen, will look to knock the mini off our top spot.
The trump card up the Note 8.0's sleeve is its ability to make and receive telephone calls and text messages - it is literally a supersized Galaxy Note 2 instead of a shrunken Galaxy Note 10.1. The price could be a stumbling block though, as it looks set to come in higher than the iPad mini.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z
It's the world's thinnest 4G tablet and with the Xperia Tablet Z also being dust- and waterproof it certainly is an appealing proposition.
A tablet which can be easily transported, powerful enough for serious work, but also rugged enough to palm off on the kids to keep them quite, the Tablet Z has it all - we can't get to get it in for a full review.

Asus Padfone Infinity
The Infinity is a thing of beauty. It's not for everyone but many of us do have a use-case for it. If you have a tablet yet find yourself using more things on your phone then Asus believes you'll be in its Padfone queue.
