5 of the best future tablets
Amazon Kindle Fire – due 15 November (US only)
Ditching e-ink for a 7in colour LCD display, Amazon's recently-unveiled first tablet runs Android 2.1 (get over it) on a dual-core processor and for now it's Wi-Fi only. The Kindle Fire's Silk browser processes web pages in the cloud to speed everything up (and spy on your browsing habits, as some are complaining). In place of Android Market you've got Amazon Prime, Cloud Player and Cloud Drive.
