Keen to road-test your favorite apps on the big screen? Here's six of the best Android tablets currently - or soon to be - available
The world's first Android 3.0 device, this dual-core Tegra 2-powered beauty features a front-facing camera and a buttonless bezel for beauty. It's devoid of any Motorola customisation too, so if you like to taste Android untainted by the manufacturer's hand and love 3D menus, as well as an efficient processor and a light chassis, check out the first Android 3.0 tablet.
Although a sequel is coming in the near future, the Galaxy Tab was the first Android tablet to market, scaling up the OS with a 1024 x 600-pixel display. With its 7 inch screen size, it's ultra-portable and the presence of Flash web browsing helps increase multimedia options on the go.
Google is putting a lot of effort into its 'proper' Android 3.0 tablet experience, but most apps still run on this unit. The light design and inevitable price drop will still entice a fair few users.
HTC’s first tablet is the Flyer, a 7in model with a 1,024x600 screen. It only has a single core processor, but still nips along at 1.4GHz to maintain a sprightly browsing speed. HTC's excellent user interface customisation is partnered by a dedicated 'smart' stylus that can tell how hard you're pressing.
It's pocket friendly (or a tablet and easy to hold in one hand. A promise to upgrade it to the Android 3.0 OS imminently will keep it at the cutting edge.
The Vega offers plenty of power from a 10in, high resolution display, for under £250. With a dual-core processor on board as well, you're getting the best of the tech world and a microSD card slot.
While the Android OS is only 2.2, there's hope for an upgrade in the near future, which should bring a snazzy new Flash player to the device as well.
The Dell Streak range includes a variety of sizes, but only the two largest feature a dual core processor. With a sleek design and a compact chassis, as well as the latest Flash player and super-strong Gorilla Glass, the range is one of the few to offer such choice. It has a rich feature set and is perfect for a bag or coat pocket. The Tegra2 Processor should also keep it motoring on for longer.
Android isn't just about playing Angry Birds; sometimes you want a dash of audio prowess. While only running the 2.1 OS, this 'pure Android audio' device offers high quality sound via both wired headphones and wirelessly, thanks to A2DP Bluetooth audio.
However, chances are you're unlikely to sit around listening to music on the tablet - and some might find the longtime it takes to move from the torpid sleep mode to a ready-to-use device something of an annoyance.
