The Best 10-inch Tablet Money Can Buy: The iPad


By far the best 10-inch tablet on the period.If you're looking for a 10-inch tablet the iPad is it,especially the 4th generation model with its retina display,even the 2nd generation tablet would still be a good buy.

Price Point: $499 to start

Honorable mention: Nexus 10


If it weren't for the retina display on the 4th generation iPad,the Nexus 10 would probably be on par with the iPad.Though the iPad has the slight advantage with a diversity of applications on its app store,the Google Play app store is rapidly catching up to Apple which makes the Nexus 10 a good buy.

The Best 7-inch Tablet Money Can Buy: The Nexus 7


The Nexus 7 is the perfect 7-inch tablet on the market in terms of design,the build and display ,a very bright display,try a 1920 x 1200 HD display. And getting all of this for a damn good reasonable price at $229,I might add though the Nexus 7 is a Wireless on version.Still and all,its a 7-inch tablet done right.If you want the LTE version,you'll have to wait until Sept when the Nexus 7 LTE should be released to market.

Price Point: $229 to start


Honorable Mention: iPad Mini


Its a nice 7-inch tablet made by Apple,but its not on the Nexus 7 level,at least not yet.We shall  see what Apple has in store for the masses on Sept 10 when Apple is suppose to  reveal the new iPad Mini with retina display. Still in all,its a pretty good alternative to the Nexus 7.
