HP TouchPad

Our runner-up, the 26-ounce TouchPad runs on Palm’s webOS 3.0 platform. It has a 9.7-inch screen and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for Skype chats, but no rear-facing camera. During our test, we downloaded a file, sent an e-mail with an attachment, and played a game simultaneously. At other times, the tablet was a bit sluggish. It lacks extra ports but prints easily to HP printers. The battery lasted eight hours. Cost: $500

After this article went to press in the September 2011 issue of Inc. magazine, HP announced it was discontinuing the TouchPad, which is no longer available online or in stores.
