Intelligent tech finds your perfect Tablet PC

Thursday 9 January, 2014
2014 is projected to be a huge year for Tablet PCs. SlickSearch.com has just been launched to help everyone - from child to granddad - navigate their way through the tablet jungle. Tablets ideally suited for students can be instantly filtered just by choosing the 'Perfect for Students' option. Anyone looking for a decent and powerful Windows 8 tablet need to just hit 'Best Windows 8 Tabs'. Simiarly, 'Best For Kids', 'Perfect for the Family' and several others. So, much more than a blast of complicated specs, SlickSearch intelligently and continually updates all it's pre-defined categories as and when tablets are released. There's another category worth a special mention called 'Uniquely Designed', which shows some of the weird & wonderful deviations now in vogue in the tablet world. However, if these categories aren't enough, there's over a dozen filters to wade through the 150+ tablets and rapidly hone in on the best tablet. It's quite interesting to see tablets now that have both Windows 8 and Android (Ativ Q), a screen on the outside as well as the inside (Asus Taichi) and even 27" displays (Lenovo Horizon)! But best of all are the nify animations SlickSearch uses, making the whole thing so easy even a child could use it.

The engine that powers this site has already proven to be immensely useful to tablet-seekers as it's also used in another site (GetTechSpecs.com), which Google UK ranks #1 for the term 'tablet specs'. Although created by the same founder, SlickSearch now builds on those foundations and is bigger, better and slicker.

Unique to SlickSearch is the in-depth research gone into each tablet's specs, organising this data in a semi-structured way and giving the best user experience to all age groups. For example, as well as the categories mentioned, it's uniquely positioned to answer questions like :-

> Which tablets come in Pink, making it that perfect gift for a daughter?
> Which Windows tablets come with a detachable keyboard and stylus/digitizer - perfect for students?
> What's the best price of specifically the 32GB-Black-3G iPad Air across hundreds of UK retailers?
> What are people saying about this tablet at this moment?

To help tablet-seekers get started, attached is an infographic* showing a subset of ~50 tablets and some key dimensions for each. This is less than a third of the tablets on the site so it's definitely worth giving SlickSearch.com a visit before deciding on exactly which one is best.

One thing's for sure though - it's becoming apparent ever more that today there are some compelling alternatives to the iPad.
