CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
The 10.1-incher fails to capture the imagination or excitement of its fellow Computex 2014 tablets.

Sure, it costs a bundle, but the Sony Xperia Z2 is everything you should expect from a top-end phone. Its impressive performance rivals the Samsung Galaxy S5 for smartphone top dog, but the Z2's slick glass and metal design trumps the S5's plastic body. If you're looking for both style and substance from a phone, you've come to the right place.
Despite its bulky design, the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T is one of the best 10-inch Android tablet values available, but it's worth your time to also look closely at its competition.
Although the Sony Xperia M2 looks pretty slick, it's let down by its low resolution display and its old version of Android, which makes even its affordable price way too high. For much less money, you could snap up the Moto G or spend a little more and pick up the older Xperia Z with its full HD display and waterproof design.
While the battery is a concern, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is still a good-looking slate that's loaded with more than enough power for anything you're likely to throw at it. It's a good choice if you're looking for a more affordable iPad alternative with 4G LTE -- particularly if you've ever lost a gadget through water damage.
For sheer typing responsiveness, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad Air is still a pro. But, even with its new tilt-angle design, it's no longer quite as unique as it used to be.
If you want a sturdy, easy-to-use keyboard accessory that looks nearly as good as the iPad itself, the Belkin Qode Thin Type is one of the best.
With its powerful processor, great camera, decent screen and gorgeous, waterproof design, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is the best small Android phone around.

The Xperia Z1S is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever sold on any carrier, but an inferior screen makes Samsung's Galaxy handsets better deals.
With Asus' slickest user interface yet, included keyboard, and a competitive starting price, the small but chunky Transformer Pad TF103 is an attractively affordable tablet hybrid.
