We've reviewed plenty of tablets over the years, from the original Apple iPad in 2010, to the numerous impersonators and innovators that have followed since. 

We know the frustration of spending hundreds of pounds on the latest bit of tech kit, only for it not to do what was promised in the ad.

This month, we've picked two Android choices to showcase some iPad alternatives. We've picked a budget model that does the basics very well indeed, and a more premium Android tablet that looks to take on and beat the iPad. Read our summaries below and click through to the full reviews if they take your fancy.
