Yes, I'm a huge Mortal Kombat fan. This should be evident to anyone after watching the video above. However, I can't take credit for the whole tournament idea.

Anyway, last week was a fairly busy week for the CNET tablet reviews team. Donald Bell and I received three new tablets in the span of only a few days.
With all that glamorous reviewing we were doing, I didn't really have the bandwidth to conduct any official speed tests, until now.
As I alluded to before, we split the tests into two rounds. The first round, featuring the Acer Iconia Tab A500, T-Mobile G-Slate, and the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, would determine which tablet would take on the Xoom and iPad 2 in the final round.
So yeah, it's a two-round tournament. We thought about extending it, but decided that doing so would involve too much repetition in the video.
