Android tablets don't get much love these days. Team them with a good keyboard and they're useful for basic productivity tasks, as proven by our time with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet. And beyond that they're still great for playing games, reading books, watching TV shows and listening to music like any other Android device. But hey're just a little less cool than iPads. And a little less useful than laptops.

The Google Pixel C turns all that on its head. Or tries to, at least, and has a very good try indeed.

We've been hearing that Google will release a new version of the Nexus 7 in July for some time now and with Google hosting an event on July 24, that's probably when we'll officially see the new Nexus 7. But if you can't wait a week, here's what the upcoming Nexus 7 will probably look like.

The best Android tablet is the Android tablet that can run Android 3.0 'Honeycomb'. And I guess that means the Nook Color, which has just received a port of Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Which you can install. Right now. Well, if you have a Nook colour, that is.

Oh hello there, Samsung Galaxy Tab. Fancy seeing you here, being tested on a bus in Sydney! From the looks of it, you're going to a downright decent iPad alternative when you're released next month.

The iPad's the best tablet around right now because it's the only tablet around, but you can bet that a whole legion of Android tablets, like Velocity Micro's Cruz Reader, are on their way. For $US200, it looks pretty good.
