Acer Iconia Tab A500

Well-built with good screen and great battery life. The A500 offers full USB port and micro-HDMI out for flexibility, built-in DLNA media sharing and easy-to-access Micro SD card support. A well-rounded Honeycomb tablet that should get even better when 3.1 is available at the end of June [2 June 2011]

Dell Latitude ST, 10.1 inch, 816 grams (1.8 lbs)
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip.
