According to Gartner, while traditional PC shipments are forecast to continue to decline in 2014, the worldwide tablet market is forecast to grow 47 percent. Tablets have without a doubt invaded every aspect of our lives. Whether it is tablets for kids in the Los Angeles Unified School District or growth in Malaysia and Latin America, tablets are rapidly superseding PCs, smartphones and other forms of electronic communications. And while Apple's iPad remains a perennial favorite, the many flavors of Android-based and now Windows 8.1 tablets have taken a big bite out of the market.

While many tablets are still oriented toward consumer use, such as reading, movies, gaming and social networking, many vendors have made a concerted effort to make their devices attractive to the business audience. With amped-up processors, multi-app capability, larger storage capacity, and integrated cloud access, the latest generation of tablets is beginning to meet the challenges and demands of today's business user.

In this slideshow, we've pulled together some of the newest tablet offerings hitting the market from companies such as Samsung, Lenovo, Microsoft, Toshiba, LG, Acer and even Amazon.
