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.
Is Google building an 8-inch Nexus tablet? All signs point to maybe -- let's see what we know.
Pricing not available
The HTC One M8 Google Play Edition will fulfill the dreams of Android fanatics seeking to pair top-notch hardware with a Nexus-style KitKat experience, so long as they’re willing to pay a premium.
Android purists will find Google's mid-sized LG G Pad 8.3 more compelling, but it's pricier than the model that's overlaid with LG's skin.
With its speedy and reliable performance, the LG G Pad 8.3 is a solid small-sized tablet, but for non-Verizon customers, the smoother and less expensive Google Nexus 7 is the better choice.
If you're looking for a pure media consumption experience, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 delivers better than any tablet before it. People looking for something more utilitarian, however, will want to look elsewhere.
It costs a bit more than we'd like, but the Galaxy Tab 3 is Samsung’s best non-Note tablet yet.
The smaller 8-inch Windows 8 tablet is a form worth exploring, and the Acer Iconia W3 can be fun to use, but it's also buggy and held back by shortcuts and lackluster features.
Yet another Windows 8 Core i5 tablet, the Acer Aspire P3 has only one thing in its favor: it costs a maximum of $899.
Sure, it's cheap, but what exactly are you getting for the $199 price? Let's start with a lack of storage place and a low-resolution screen.
