Of course, we are interested in exploring what mobile computing in general has to offer teaching enhancement so I am listing here tablets other than iPad2, which are said to offer other kinds of features and/or additional power and storage. Please see a very useful article on Appolicious at http://www.androidapps.com/tech/articles/10206-the-best-tablet-alternatives-to-the-ipad-2 .
