People recycling mobile phones in order to invest in a tablet device are likely to find there is nothing on the market that can live with the Apple iPad.

Will Findlater, editor of Stuff magazine, said that the US manufacturer has a “stranglehold” on the tablet market.

This is the result of having both the best hardware and the finest software currently available to any firm.

He went on to say it is the huge range of apps available to iPad users that is the most significant advantage Apple holds.

“Until Android and the other platforms can rival the iPad’s roster of apps I don’t think they are going to make a dent,” Mr Findlater stated.

As such, anybody thinking of selling or recycling their mobile phones in order to switch to a tablet might be wise to ensure it is an Apple product.

The company released the iPad 2 earlier this year after a lavish launch ceremony in California.
