  • Ramos on Feb. 1st 2012 12:47:13 PM

    I like Huawei MediaPad

  • Seralo on Aug. 6th 2011 10:13:43 PM

    Done. I have also added the Lenovo Thinkpad tablet which will be released soon too.

  • Smitty on Aug. 6th 2011 12:00:47 AM

    Can you add the Lenova K1 to the list?

  • William on Jun. 16th 2011 6:40:34 PM

    With Android 3.1, any of these can use a standard bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and the ones with full-size USB ports can use standard USB keyboards and mice too. Acer and Motorola make Android-specific keyboards with function keys and such on them specifically for Android. I don't know if those function keys work with other Android tablets.

    Can you add 3g/4g connectivity?

  • OutaDa Dark on Apr. 21st 2011 6:33:08 AM

    Could you add USB connectivity information for these devices? Full size, mini, Host and charging ability via USB would be invaluable comparison information. Thanks.
