A fierce battle is about to begin and new battle lines are being drawn - as the world's biggest tech superpowers fight for dominance in the mobile/tablet arena this autumn. Let us guide you through the key players in this battle of attrition:
Google not only have their own Nexus 7 tablet but the Android ecosystem continues to grow, and with huge support from the likes of Samsung and Amazon they are a formidable foe.
Microsoft look set to enter the crowded tablet market with their own Surface device - and with both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 on the verge of availability the Seattle giants could scatter its competitors playing pieces far and wide.
Apple too is set to unleash the newest addition in their iPhone arsenal and look to fire a rocket up Google's trousers by launching their own mini tablet.
The question is: which side will come out on top, whose products will woo you?
