The iPad or new iPad or third iPad or whatever you want call it is the top selling single tablet model, by a lot. But you might be surprised to know that Apple could be down to less than 70% of the tablet market this year. So, who�s got the other 30%? I�m B.C. here to show you: The Top 5 tablets that you should consider instead of the iPad. New iPad. iPad 3. Oh, whatever, let�s go. #5 The Asus Eee Pad MeMo -- you know, the $250 7� tablet that won our Best of CES award for the tablet category a few months back. Not out just yet so we can�t slot it by review score, but it makes the list on price and the fact that it is at least a cousin on the Transformer Prime which we�ll meet later. Tegra 3 CPU, 12MP rear cam and ICS make us wonder is the price is a typo. #4 is the Amazon Kindle Fire. Yeah, #4 because it is missing a lot, like cameras, GPS and a mic. Not going to call it bad, because that $200 price and it being the only tablet that is wired into Amazon�s DNA keeps it interesting. But I can�t wait for Fire 2.0. #3 is the -Sony Tablet S. Yep, Sony actually makes something noteworthy aside from the PS3. Great design on this guy -- a little goofy at first, but just get one in your hand -- has Sony�s burgeoning content ecosystem baked in an integrated IR remote, which is useful considering how many of us use tablets while wathcing TV. $399 for 16GB. #2 -This was a tough fight against the Sony, but we give the runner-up nod to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Family 10.1, 8.9, 7.7, one for every pocket & purse. Great screens across the board, excel at being thin and light and Samsung is steadily building real market share against Apple, so you can feel like you�re buying into something that will have more than just collectible value tomorrow. Prices vary a lot by size and whether you buy on contract or not. #1 goes to the tablet that geeks ask me about the most: The Asus Transformer Prime TF700T -- you now, the one that just came out barely a month after the original Transformer Prime! Arrgghhh. Well gitcher� ass on eBay and sell the one you have because the TF700T has much improved 1900x1200 screen res on its 10� display, an HD front cam for high def video chat and a new back panel that Asus says will improve Wi-Fi, BT and GPS performance. Rolls out Q2 of 2012 with ICS for $600 for 32GB. It goes without saying that the tablet market is cuckoo. We�ve probably just reviewed 3 more models since I have been standing here. So you got to go check out cnet.com, check out the tablets link on the left, to get the lates. I am Brian Cooley, thanks for watching.
