Tom's Tablet Chart

Tom's Tablet Chart
By

Not a day goes by without tablet PC news, and with so many devices on the horizon, Tom's Guide wants to be your destination for tablet facts.

Ever since January's Consumer Electronics Show, tablet and slate PCs have been the focal point for many techies around the world. While some devices--like Apple's iPad and the JooJoo from Fusion Garage--are out and available for purchase, many tablets are on the docket for later this year or are still in the concept/vaporware phase. With so many devices in various stages of development, keeping track of all this hardware can get a little messy for the would-be tablet consumer. So, starting today, Tom's Guide is going to keep an up-to-date Tablet/Slate computer chart in order to bring a little order to all this madness.

The chart will keep track of nearly every aspect of tablet hardware, including manufacturer, OS, storage, memory, I/O ports, screen size, screen type, and status (released, canceled, etc.). Our chart is not for tablets with physical keyboards, although some exceptions can made, like the Lenovo Hybrid laptop/tablet. Also, some information on the chart is still based on speculation and rumor (like the HP Slate's CPU), but we will correct any rumor-related errors as soon as information is verified.

The best part about this chart is that YOU can help us maintain its accuracy. If there's a tablet that we didn't include, or if a feature on any given device has changed recently, please let us know about in the comments. Our goal is to keep this chart as up-to-date as possible, so the more feedback from the Tom's Guide community, the better!

Because of size restrictions on our site, we had to break the chart into two sections. So far, we have 12 tablets that are either available for purchase or slated or be released by years' end.

UPDATE - October 18th, 2010 - We have another round of updates for you! We added six new tablets to the chart, including three from Augentech, and one each from Cherrypal, Tegatech and Advent. We also tweaked some release dates and pricing on other models, specifically the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which will definitely be on Sprint and T-Mobile for $399 (with two year plan). If we missed anything or made any spec errors, be sure to let us know in the comments.

    You can also add the Augen78 tablet, theoretically available at K-mart for $170. Android 2.1, 600MHz (or 800) processor, USB, 7" screen, 512Mb RAM, 2Gb storage. It has issues, but it is 1/3 the price of anything else on your list.

    Can you guys also place a battery life in these tables. That is one of the most important feature for the tablets.

    It could have been great to be able to compare the weight in the chart too (I think it's a very important aspect of any mobile electronics, like laptop and mobile phone)

    Light dawns on Marblehead! Now I see why apple had to use a bastardized version of it's phone OS, the damn things practically a calculator.

    The Exopc price is 599$ (same price as the iPad with 32gb) available in september.
    Also the battery is indicated on the site to 5h, and 10 for the iPad, but I prefer to see real comparative tests (video playback on iPad = 5h...)

    Finally i found the ExoPC as a better device than the iPad (connections & IO, size, webcam, real OS)
    I can use Skype on it! well... the webcam is certainly not the best on the market... but I can certainly connect another one on the USB port.

    and becoming from a startup company, I'll encourage it for sure!

    Agreed. However, manufacturers usually overly exaggerate the battery life.

    On another note, that Archos 9 looks like a steal.. A full OS :)

    I am not an Apple fan but I have to say iPad is so far the most balanced one. Atom CPU is so painfully slow. It makes me want to step on those netbooks. Windows 7 or Linux is just not a good OS for tablet. iPad is balanced which I hate to admit. Maybe WebOs will be a good option.

    Archos is a Ah NO. It is so slow.

    HP Touchsmart Tm2t is definitely one one of the best tablet PCs. i5 CPU with a dedicated ATI GPU and 8 GB of RAM. It's battery life is around 5-6 hours, and the Wacom, capacitive screen is both touch and stylus input.
