the top Alternatives to the Ipad include:
Blackberry Playbook(not out yet)

The Blackberry Playbook will be a definite Ipad competitor. Coming from such a quality company as Research in Motion, it will not dissipoint many. It has a 7 inch screen which is smaller than the Ipad. Its computing runs on a Blackberry OS 6 and it will have a 1Ghz dual core processor. It will thus easily handle mutlitasking and single tasks will be done quickly. It has a mini HDMI port, 2 quality cameras, and will run flash,html5, and java. The one downside is that it will not have the old blackberry apps. Development of new apps is needed.Blackberry Playbook not yet for sale, coming Q1 2011
