#1 iPad mini:

After the success of the 10” iPad model, Apple decided to throw up a revolutionary iPad mini with a 7.9” to get to more people who found the 10” model too big to handle, but does the iPad mini stand by itself?

Let’s talk about the first impression, from the first moment you will hold an iPad mini you will realize that this is the size a tablet meant to be, not as big as a laptop neither small as a smart phone, it weighs only (0.73 pound/ 331 grams).

The most important thing about a tablet is the high quality screen resolution specially seen with the iPad mini Retina display model, which makes a lot fun surfing the web, checking email, watching videos and reading E-books, and much simpler tasks Netbooks were originally designed to do.

To use the iPad mini for more productive purposes, such as editing office documents, go to the Apple app store, and download Apple's productivity iWork suite: Pages (word processing), Numbers (spreadsheets) and Keynote (slideshows) which is now available for free to download from the app store, can you actually imagine that each one of those apps was available for $9.99 dollars each? It is a big step for Apple to gain more costumers.

You will probably enjoy the iPad Mini, if you like to update later to new coming model later, just resell it down the road. Apple products always hold most of their value for a long time, because they're in such high demand.

In the box:

  • iPad mini.
  • Lightning to USB cable.
  • USB power adapter.
  • Quick start up guide.

Price Range:

  • $241, Retina display model is $299

#2 Kindle Fire HDX 7"

This is the 3rd generation Kindle Fire brand, which they name it, Kindle Fire HDX with an updated operating system and new features, and with noticeable improvements under the hood along Mayday function, which allows you at any time to get an instant personal live support.

This tablet has one of the best audio speakers you can find on a tablet device, and it does not matter if you put it on a flat surface you will still get sound, thanks to the edging position they managed to design, and now the screen is much sharper granting better view indoors and out, playing video games is another story of power along with energetic processor to support it.

Kindle Fire HDX improvements lead to an overall more pleasant experience delivers inconceivable value for its price, especially for Amazon Prime members, that allows users to get an instant video option and watch movies and shows at no charge until the Free Trial expires automatically.

In the box:

  • Kindle Fire HDX 7".
  • Getting to know your kindle guide.
  • Micro USB charging cable.
  • USB power adapter.

Price Range:

  • Starting at $149

#3 Nexus 7

Nexus 7

I'm in love with the way the new Nexus 7 feels in hands compared to the old one. The difference in the width makes holding the new nexus in your hand much more comfortable. It is slightly longer due to the enlarged bezels, still it gives a comfortable hold especially in landscape mode.

Nexus 7 has a new absolute stunning screen, comparing it to a previous generation, or any tablet on the market as of now. Some people argue that the resolution of 323 pixels per inch is unnecessary, but you can really see the difference when you use it in person. Text is significantly sharper and a little easier on the eye to read.

Comparing the camera to other flagships, it may not win the battle, still it takes a descent photos, also it delivers a remarkable an enhanced audio quality siding it with other flagships or previous generation.

In general it runs smoothly, due to the empowered CPU, which is 4 times faster than the previous generation it owns Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, 1.5GHz, along with 2 GB of ram.

One key difference I'd like to point out over the old Tablet is the improved battery life, which lasts slightly longer than the old Nexus 7, but the fact you can use the tablet while it is plugged into the charger and it will slowly charge, while the old tablet would slowly drain.

In the Box:

  • NEXUS 7 FHD by ASUS Tablet
  • AC Adapter & Power Plug
  • Manual Card
  • Warranty Card

Price Range:

  • Starting at $194

      @peachpurple It got to be, because Apple has became the brand that is in every country, the country where you can't find a an Apple store, you will find at least a couple of certified dealers of it.

      @serbonero the price always drops when new models are out or about to be released, and with the wide range of competitors coming everyday, that's always good for consumers like us.

      thanks

      I am looking to buy some inexpensive tablet up to 8'', and I thought that iPad mini costs more than $300 so I haven't even considered buying it. Now it's back in the game
