10 Hot Tablets That Will Top the Charts in 2013
If just about every analyst firm in the world is to be believed, tablets are going to be one of the leading drivers of the technology industry's growth in the coming year. Tablets will be adopted quite heavily by enterprise customers, while consumers will continue to choose them to the detriment of the laptops and smaller notebooks they had been using years before. As a result, tablets are going to top the charts this year in a big, big way. But not all tablets are created equal. In fact, there's a real chance that customers will hardly cast a glance at the vast majority of tablets available this year. Precious few vendors will dominate the tablet market—at least for now. Apple, Samsung and Google will continue to top the market, while Amazon will also have success. This slide show will analyze the tablets, in no particular order, that will likely top the charts in 2013, looking at what these products have that should make them popular with customers around the world.
Apple's iPad, the product that defined the modern tablet market, is an obvious choice for this list. It's been the most sought-after tablet on the market since its debut, and Apple's marketing and branding behind the device is stellar. Is the iPad still the best tablet available? That's up for debate. But if anything, it will remain a top-notch contender for that spot.
