Apple's New iPad

This is an obvious one, isn't it? Apple's new iPad, which launched earlier this year, comes with a 9.7-inch screen, 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) support and iOS 5. Most reviewers agree that it offers a higher level of quality than the vast majority of products on store shelves. If that's not enough to help you make a choice, what is?
The technology industry is now dominated by mobile products. From iPhones to iPads, Ultrabooks to Chromebooks, just about every consumer and enterprise user is spending serious cash on mobile devices. Companies that had previously spent much of their time trying to target other, more-grounded markets are now realizing that in order to be successful in this generation, going mobile is the right move. As a result, vendors are sending out mobile products to store shelves at an astonishing rate. Nearly every day, a new smartphone, tablet or notebook is launching with hopes of becoming the hot product everyone wants. In some cases, vendors are having some success. In others, they're falling short. But for consumers and enterprise decision makers, the hardest part of the whole ordeal is trying to cut through the clutter to get to the good stuff. This slide show might help simplify that process. Rather than waste time searching through reviews or playing the guessing game, the following items will make it clear which products will be best for today's mobile users.
