|at 680gm (1.5lbs) the iPad comes in at a larger-than-expected weight which could limit its use as a mobile device but the entry-level, no-contract price of $499 is groundbreaking for Apple. Ebooks, Maps, Video, Music and a high-quality web experience through a fun and friendly user interface will qualify it for many. Limitations and 'showstoppers' exist (no SD slot, no Flash support, no multi-tasking.) One of the first 'good value' products from Apple.|

|HP Touchpad, 9.7", 700gm|
The TouchPad's 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel IPS display and 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor make it a fairly powerful tablet. But while the innovative webOS software looks nice and has a few neat tricks up its sleeve, the software doesn't feel like it's been optimized for the tablet. The TouchPad suffers from random freezes and applications sometimes launch or run slower than they should. Hackers have given the discontinued tablet a second life though, by porting Google Android to run on the TouchPad.
