If you’re interested in tablet apps, there’s still only one game in town. From GPS-enabled maps to translators, TV viewers, games, and (yes) magazines, more stellar apps (over 65,000) are available for the iPad than for any other competitor. And now, the lighter, thinner iPad 2’s new dual-camera setup means you can make video calls to iPhone 4 users back home via FaceTime. $499–$829; apple.com.
