Welcome to the monthly listing of the “Most Popular Tablet PCs”. This report is compiled based on the number of views each product page receives, so every time someone clicks on a product they’re giving it a vote in that months rankings.

These rankings don’t necessarily indicate which models are the best selling, just which ones TabletPCReview readers are most interested in learning about.

HP still holds the number one spot with the tx2500, which comes as no surprise, many users love this tablet due to the price and features offered.  As I mentioned last month, we would have some new comers this month and I was right. The Lenovo ThinkPad X200 claims second and is new to the list along with HP’s updated 2730p, which comes in at number four. A few shifting of spots this month and the newly released Fujitsu T5010 falls to number three, but Fujitsu has many more tablet releases up their sleeves, so expect more updates to come from them. So stay tuned for the newest releases because we will have all the latest news for this upcoming holiday season.
