      I see you even have the newest iPad air on this list. We have tried the Samsung galaxy, Google Nexus and a motorola tablet. We are now the proud owners of 2 iPads (not the latest, the air) and I have to say that I am partial to Apple. I know other friends who have had a different experience, though, so this list is very helpful for those in the market for a tablet. Thank you!
