Best tablets(Updated February 20, 2014 10:00 AM PST)
It's the iPad Air in a smaller more affordable package. And with an A7 chip in tow, access to Apple's still unbeatable App Store, and a razor-sharp screen, the Mini with Retina is the best small tablet yet.
As long as Google supports it, the Nexus 7 will always provide you with the latest version of pure Android. Its gorgeously bright screen and affordable $229 price only increase its already near-irresistible appeal.
Barnes & Noble's decision to open its Nook HD tablets to the Google Play store was almost as smart as the recent price cuts. At $149, the Nook HD+ is probably the best tablet deal currently available.
