7. HTC Flyer
Coming in at number 7 is a new tablet from the makers of the highly acclaimed HTC desire HD.
"Fly through the web wherever you go"
Conveniently compact and light for travel, yet amazingly powerful, the HTC Flyer tablet with a 7" display and a superfast 1.5 GHz processor is perfect for web browsing at home, in the car or on a busines trip. To make it even better, it features Adobe Flash support, multi-window browsing with pinch to zoom, and a clever quick look-up that lets you tap into Wikipedia, Youtube and other web resources.
6. Samsung Galaxy Tablet
Measuring 120 by 191 by 12mm, Samsung's 7-inch tablet is significantly smaller than Apple's 9.7-inch device. There's only a couple of inches between the screen sizes of the two machines, but it actually makes a huge difference -- the Tab is about half the size of the iPad.
Beyond the lock screen, you'll find five customisable home screens, which you can fill to the brim with widgets and app shortcuts. Along the bottom of the screen are dedicated shortcuts to the Web browser, email and the full application menu.
How quickly you're able to navigate to the item you want will be largely down to you. If you make a habit of pinning your favourite apps to a home screen, you'll never be too far from the application your heart desires. If you decide not to customise the Tab, you could end up spending a few extra seconds clicking around menus, hunting for what you want.
Switching from portrait to landscape orientation automatically, via the built-in accelerometer, is also less elegant than it is in iOS. Switching often takes a while, with the screen disappearing before reappearing a moment later in a different position. There's also no hardware button to lock the display in one particular orientation, as there is on the iPad. That's a feature you'll quickly miss if you want to read something on the Tab while lying on your side.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a great device that packs neat hardware and well-integrated software into an appealing little bundle. The Galaxy isn't better than the iPad... But it isn't any worse either -- just different.
The iPad is slicker and simpler. If you're looking for a tablet to keep on your coffee table, and let you browse the Web on the sofa, the iPad is king. But, if you want something nimble but more feature-packed, the Galaxy is a decent choice.
5. Blackberry Playbook
The new Blackberry Playbook With goregous looks and smaller size make it a perfect candidate for gadget of the year 2011. We are confident the Blackberry will still be going strong into 2012 as one of the 'must have' gadgets.
Apple represents one of the most successful brands of recent years. Responsible for dominating the market for tablet computers, the company took the industry by storm with the launch of the iPad in 2010 – one of the most astonishing technological phenomena of the past decade. Now the company is about to face some stiff competition with the arrival of a brand new product which could serve to threaten Apple’s supremacy. This April 2011 promises to witness the arrival of the Blackberry Playbook – an exciting device which is already stirring up excitement amongst potential buyers.
The imminent Playbook has also generated great optimism amongst gaming enthusiasts who can look forward to enjoying mobile gaming services with increased comfort. Larger than the smart phone but smaller than the iPad, the new tablet offers gamers the chance to access their favourite titles whilst on the move and at their convenience. Unlike the iPhone which does not support Flash software, the Blackberry Playbook will allow users to access no download casinos giving them the chance to enjoy numerous arcade and social games wherever and whenever they choose. Many feel that this increased capability will give the new product the edge over the much loved but limited iPad.
Compact, attractive and easy to transport, it’s no wonder everybody’s counting down the weeks to the arrival of the Blackberry Playbook. Fans of online casinos will certainly be hoping to check out the new device for themselves with less than a month to go before the hotly anticipated launch. Industry members will be looking on with keen interest
4. Dell Peju Windows 8 tablet
In the number 4 spot is the Dell Peju Windows 8 tablet.

3. iPhone 5

Many of the iPhone 4 contracts taken out in 2010 and 2011 will be 2 year contracts, so anyone lucky enough to get their hands on this must have gadget before 2012 will certainly stand out in the crowd. With new design and functions this has to be an essential to anyone interested in gadgets.
Apple likes to keep its releases regular – iPhones have been released every year since 2007. Every year the same event: Apple hires out the Yerba Buena Centre in San Francisco – around June or July – and confirms the next iPhone 5!
