The Consumer Electronics Show was awash with tablets this year. According to some reports there were as many as 80 on show at the event, in all shapes and sizes from vendors like Lenovo, Motorola, Dell, RIM, Asus and a host of lesser known companies, all jostling for slice of a market which exploded last year after the launch of Apple's iPad.

Opinion is divided over which of the many products (and there are others to come) have the best chance of being successful.
