Welcome to the monthly listing of the "Top 10 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.

For the second month in a row the HP tx1000 and Lenovo X61 are still holding strong at the number one and two spots. While, the not even released, Dell Latitude XT still holds on to third. As predicted though we have two new contenders on our list, the Fujitsu LifeBook T2010 and LifeBook U810. These two new tablets from Fujitsu have made quite a splash for the upcoming Holiday season, which I am sure the Dell Latitude XT will do as well, once it’s released. Since the Holiday season is right around the corner, I would expect to see more new tablet releases from the likes of HP and Toshiba that will shake things up for next months list. Someone has to compete with Fujitsu, and the tx1000, no matter how popular, is in need of a refresh.

 

1. HP Pavilion tx1000 (Still #1) – The HP Pavilion tx1000 is a Tablet PC notebook convertible.
