When choosing a tablet PC, there are plenty of different features to assess. One of the most important factors to take into consideration is the battery life of the device concerned. A simple hour rating doesn’t tend to help because tablets use up their battery power at different rates, depending on the amount of processing they are doing – as well as other factors. To make assessing the battery life as simple as possible, the table has a simple star rating which shows which of the devices we have reviewed has the best rating. That way, you won’t buy a device that you spend all of your time recharging.

The display of a tablet is another key area worth considering. The size of the screen is an important factor and one which tends to affect the price of the product. However, you should also check out the screen resolution of any tablet as this is a fundamental part of the quality of the display. Each of these features can be compared across all of the tablets reviewed, using the table.

Connecting to other devices is another important issue for tablets, especially if you want to store data on yours permanently elsewhere. Most tablets allow for a simple USB connection to another computer – but not all – so check this out. Likewise, you can use the table to see which of the tablets have WiFi connectivity and those that can also access the mobile telephone network using 3G.
