Tablets are hot property at the moment, as hardware manufacturers vie to produce a challenger to Apple's iPad, which has captured mindshare if not sold in quite the numbers analysts were expecting.

Quite a few more are expected early next year, including Acer's 10inch offering and more pictured below:
