"The very powerful Consumers Union tested the "10 most-promising tablet computers" and published an article in its magazine, Consumer Reports. Subscribers can read the full report on their website, consumerreports.org and a summary is available in this press release."
A somewhat muddled story that was (machine?) translated from French to English states that in head-to-head testing (17 tests) of 10 tablets by Consumer Reports, the iPad leads, followed closely by the Motorola Xoom. Their conclusions: price is directly linked to tablet quality, and that ease of use and the ability to upgrade and trump pure specifications. The big winner was the 32GB iPad 2 with WiFi and 3G.
