The iPad 2 helps to maintain Apple’s position in the market. However, all iPad rivals have some outstanding advantages over the Apple's iron grip. If you do not want an iPad Apple, here are seven best competing tablets available on the market.

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the ultra-thin tablet from Samsung which can operate on Google's tablet-specific OS Android 3.0 or Honeycomb.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 10-inch wide-screen display and weighs less than a number of smaller tablets. The device has a dual-core 1GHz processor, dual speakers, a 3-megapixel back camera and a 2-megapixel front camera.
