The International CES is the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow.CES 2011 is the most exciting consumer electronics show of the year.One of the standout trends of CES 2011 was the tablet. No fewer than 80 tablets were on display from manufacturers from across the globe,here are list from engadget.com :Best tablet of CES2011.
Moto’s pretty much cleaning up house. Amongst the 40 something tablets at CES, the Xoom was the one to really capture our hearts. Besides its 1280 x 800-resolution 10.1-inch display, 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, and 5 megapixel camera, the Xoom was the only tablet at the show to actually show off Google’s Honeycomb (aka Android 3.0). We like what we see, even if the 4G version won’t arrive until Q2.

Motorola Xoom review
RIM has been teasing the PlayBook for months, but it wasn’t until CES 2011 that we finally got to play with it. Headed to Sprint this summer, we dig the 7-inch display and QNX OS, we’re just not sure about that whole bridge thing.BlackBerry PlayBook review
Notion Ink Adam
After a year of delays and suspicions, we finally got to see a working Notion Ink Adam. Packed with a 10.1-inch Pixel Qi display, Tegra 2 processor, and its own Eden UI, this hardware start-up can actually compete with the big boys… that is if it can work out its supply and order issues.
So, the CES tablet craze can be summed up this way:
• There may be 75 or more tablets at CES 2011, but most of them are quite similar and not running operating systems intended for tablets—meaning they are almost exclusively running Android 2.2.
• The Motorola Xoom is promising, but with no true demos available to the press, it doesn’t feel like a fully fleshed-out device yet.
• RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook is the real deal: a beautiful, working 4G tablet—and the best bet to contend with Apple’s iPad in 2011.
Apple has probably been viewing Google’s Android OS as the prime enemy for the past year now—but it looks like RIM just changed the game. BlackBerry devotees will likely drool over the PlayBook.
