Welcome to the January 2009 Most Popular Tablet PCs list. This report is made using the total page-views each product page receives in one month; so each time someone clicks one of the product links, they are submitting a vote in our monthly rankings. This list doesn’t always show which models are the best selling, but instead the models that readers want to research the most.

HP continues to hold the number one position with the tz2500z having a strong lead and the tx2z slipping from #2 to #5. The Lenovo X200 jumped up back into the #2 spot for this month and we saw quite a few older models make there way into the list again. We guess this is from models being clearance off as manufacturers make way for the newest models.
