There can be little doubt that when it comes to gadgets, 2012 was the year of the tablet. Scores of new models flooded onto the market with the hope of capitalizing on the phenomenon started by the iPad but now transcending apple’s fan base and making inroads into the traditional PC market as casual users swap their laptops for tablet PC’s. Google’s Android OS has driven down the cost of tablets and created a genuine alternative to Apple or Windows software.
