If ever there were a piece of technology right out of Star Trek, it would have to be the tablet. Part personal assistant, part wonderful toy, tablets are fast replacing the laptop as the preferred couch and travel computing device. Apple’s iPad may have popularized the category, but it’s not the only company doing great work with these devices. We’ve rounded up the cream of the tablet crop for your perusing pleasure.
Asus made and Google injected, the Nexus 7 is a fully capable 7-inch tablet that’s easy to grip and priced to move. Starting at just $229 for a $16GB Wifi model, the flagship Android tablet is highly affordable when compared to the $400 iPad mini with Retina Display. While the Kindle Fire HDX is even cheaper, Android 4.4 makes the Nexus a more fully-featured tablet, not just a media consumption device. It also taps into to the Google Play Store, which may still be number two to iTunes for the latest games and apps, but you’ll still find plenty to play, and it’s absolutely completive on media pricing and selection. If you’re looking for a solid travel tablet, and still want to have money left to put gas in your tank, it’s Nexus 7 all the way. However, we recommend you opt for the 32GB model, since the available storage on a 16 is only 12GB. That’s not many games!
