Apple’s New iPad is Top Tablet

Consumer Reports came out with their tablet ratings today and named Apple’s iPad the top tablet. The top rating was based on the new iPad’s Retina display, its 5-megapixel camera, long-lasting battery and dependable connectivity to Verizon’s 4G network.

Other highly-rated tablets included the Toshiba Excite 10LE (light and thin), Pantech’s Element (waterproof and the longest-lasting battery for smaller tablets), Sony Tablet P (its dual screen is great for reading and viewing photos) and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 (the first OLED screen in a tablet).
