What's the best tablet of 2014? Today's latest tablets compared and rated - constantly updated.

Though Mobile World Congress 2014 was all about hot, new phones, a few tabs were found in the mix too - in fact, we have a hands on with the lovely Sony Xperia Z2; will the sequel take the current Xperia's number four spot?

We're also excited to see if the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ will make the list since it's cheaper than the iPad Air and could very well make "a great Android alternative to Microsoft's Surface."

The new year will probably see more updated versions of current tabs out there as well, giving you even more choices than before.

And with choice comes decisions - difficult decisions. Do you eschew Apple's high prices, join the Android brigade and find the best iPad alternative? Or do you give in to near-perfection and get the iPad Air or iPad mini 2 with Retina display?

Luckily, we've made it easy for you and pulled together the top 10 tablets of the moment available in the US. We'll be constantly updating this list as new players enter the market and the older ones fizzle out.

In general terms, today's tablet computers sport touch screens ranging in size from 7- up to 13-inches. These dimensions are by no means static, and boundaries can be blurred as smartphones get larger displays, a la the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Physical stock keyboards are also a rarity, but there are the exceptions such as the Asus Transformer Prime and newer Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, which come with a keyboard dock for the tablets. Microsoft tablets have their own keyboards as well with the Surface 2 and the Suface Pro 2.
