Printer-friendly version Email this CRN article

There's no shortage of manufacturers entering the tablet market these days. Even TV makers like Vizio are getting into the game.

And more devices are coming, as companies such as Amazon and Lenovo are preparing new tablets to compete in an already crowded market. Apple's iPad still reigns supreme, but challengers like Samsung's Galaxy Tab, Motorola's Xoom, and Viewsonic ViewPad series are mounting efforts around Google's Android operating system.

But what's the best tablet solution for the channel? And what's the determining factor for end users? Should VARs look more at a tablet's size, weight and feel? Does storage capacity and feeds mean more for enterprise users? Or are the OS and application ecosystem the biggest factors for choosing a tablet?
CRN's Rob Wright discusses those topics and more with Ed Moltzen, managing editor of CRN's Test Center.

Along with discussing what tablet is the best choice for VARs, Moltzen offers his input on a number of new tablets that have shown up in the Test Center lab, including Research In Motion's BlackBerry PlayBook.

Listen to the latest CRN Podcast on the ultra-hot tablet market and what these new devices mean for the channel.
