|Bottom line|| |
The Nook HD+ is a low-price, quality entry point into the world of tablets, especially now that it has full Google Play support.
With everything that was great about the HDX 7 and more, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 isn't just a great value, it sets the standard for a media consumption tablet.
Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get.
Functionally, the iPad Air is nearly identical to last year’s model, offering only faster performance and better video chatting. But factor in design and aesthetics, and the iPad Air is on another planet. It’s the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.
