|Bottom line|| |
The Microsoft Surface 2 is great for getting work done, but those looking for extensive app support (beyond Office) will find top Apple, Android, and Amazon tablets to be better options.
The Nexus 10's superior design and swift performance make it one of the best Android tablets to date.
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.
