|Dell Venue 11 Pro 7140 (7140-6150), 10.8", 770gm|
The Dell Venue 11 Pro is a 10.8" Windows 8.1 Tablet running on Intels Core-M 5Y10 SoC platform. The 10.8" display features a Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolution and offers good viewing angles due to the IPS screen. It has a 10 finger multitouch screen and comes with an additional digitizer. Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n and NFC make for some good wireless connectivity. In terms of ports it offers 1x USB 3.0, 1x microUSB 2.0, a microSDHC port and an miniHDMI port. We like the fact that the battery is user replaceable. A frontfacing 1.3MP as well as a backfacing 8MP camera should be enough for all your tablet needs. Note that there are multiple options like LTE available.

MicroHDMI, microSDHC card slot, audio jack and a microUSB host (OTG) port is all there is around the device. This device comes with a copy of Office Personal 365 preinstalled. Note that the 10.1" display features an IPS panel.

The HP Omni 10 offers full-HD resolution on a 10-inch tablet in just 650 grams - a big step forward for Windows tablets. The entry price of 399 Euro is a step forward too.

The Sony Vaio Tap 11 is, at launch, the lightest 4th-Gen Core-based tablet available although models start with a slightly cut-down Pentium version. Great screen, included keyboard, 3G/LTE options and a good entry-level price.

The Toshiba WT310 is an 11" Windows 8 Pro Tablet with optional HSPA+ / LTE support. No notes on the CPU yet and no info on SSD size. It is likely to be based on the Intel Ivy bridge Y models. The pen can be used for additional stylus-input.
|HP ElitePad 900, 10.1", 680gm|
The HP ElitePad 900 is a new Windows 8 Tablet based on Intel's Clovertrail Platform. With its 16:10 ratio display at a resolution of 1280x800 is protected with Gorilla Glass 2. Availability is targeted towards late January 2013. The front-facing camera is supposed to serve a 1080p Full HD Video to the sensor and the rear-facing camera comes with 8MP and an LED flash.
|Microsoft Surface Pro, 10.6", 907gm|
Microsoft's Surface Pro is likely to give the tablet category a good boost through the marketing and branding and this version of the Surface will be a true desktop-capable device. At 900gm it's one of the lightest Core-based tablets and the 10.1" screen also makes it highly portable. A digitiser layer, FULLHD resolution and keyboard accessories only make it more interesting. We'd have preferred to see a full size SD card slot although the SDXC slot will be useful in expanding storage space.
