Despite not seeing a boost in resolution, the iPad 2's display is still the best we've seen on a tablet with bright and vivid colours, impressive black levels (making videos look that much better), and of course all important superb viewing angles.

It's no secret that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 is being marketed as a media device, and the screen is suitably sharp, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution that means you can sit back and enjoy some 1080p visuals on the move.

The new spec uses a dual-core A5 processor that promises to be twice as fast with nine times the graphics performance.

In all fairness, it’s really tough to gauge, but the end result is the same with this Retina Display – it’s crisp, bright, and quite accurate with its color reproduction.

It's also good for gaming - you can play turn-based games like office favourite Strategery with ease, since they don't require a particularly quick Internet connection.
