Viewsonic Viewpad 7 Review

It must be quite annoying being Viewsonic: the firm doesn’t have the cachet of Apple or Samsung, largely because its products tend to be me-too offerings rather than genuinely innovative devices.

Binatone Homesurf 7 Review

At £99.99, the only tablet cheaper than the Binatone Homesurf 7 is one that’s been crudely drawn in crayon on a bit of cardboard. It’s no iPad, but should you consider it for sofa-based surfing?

Archos 70 Review

Archos likes to do things differently from other firms, and its ultra-cheap Android tablet can also run a more traditional form of Linux if you prefer. So is this a tablet for Linux geeks, or is it useful for non-geeks too?

Apple iPad Review

The tablet that kick-started the tablet revolution is about to be replaced, but it’s still comfortably ahead of many rivals – and Apple’s ongoing software updates mean it’ll stay fresh for some considerable time to come.
