The best of the rest
Weighing up the competition in the tablet market
Panasonic UT-MB5 Web www.panasonic.co.uk Price £4,000
The 20-inch behemoth is powered by Windows 8 and is aimed at professionals. Its 4K display is sure to wow everyone who lays eyes on it. It also boasts a stylus with pressure sensitivity, and it’s built to Panasonic’s rugged Toughpad standards.
Sony Xperia Z2 Web www.sony.co.uk Price £399
For those who don’t want to remortgage for Panasonic’s monstrosity, consider the waterproof and dust and scratch resistant Z2. Although it lacks a stylus, a cool feature enables you to use a traditional graphite pencil to draw on the screen.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Web www.samsung.com Price £349
The 12.2’s little brother is easier to slip into a large pocket or small bag, for half the price. It still includes cool features like the same 2,560x1,600 resolution, a colour depth of 16 million and an 8-megapixel camera, and is far more affordable, too.
Nvidia Tegra Note 7 Web www.nvidia.co.uk Price £140
This is Nvidia’s first venture into tablets. As you’d expect, it packs a super-fast mobile processor, but the boon for artists is the Nvidia DirectStylus, which is responsive and includes advanced features such as finger and palm rejection.
