Four tablets, one will be mine. Thoughts?

by JAROAM / September 21, 2012 1:13 AM PDT

Need a new toy, on the cheap, howsabout a tablet?

Will be my first. Want to buy something I can kick around without being married to it, hence going low cost.

So it comes down to the four contenders: Kindle Fire HD, Nexsus 7 8GB, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7in, and perhaps even the BB Playbook.

Depends on you?

Frankly my choice varies on what the user expects from such. If the user is just that and wants less to fiddle with, that is, doesn't want to deal with odd issues, you get the iPad or KF. The Google tablet set the bar high up so the technocrat would go with that and the person that feels OK with fiddling and the other limitations would go with Sam.

I know that's not an exact answer but it all depends on you.

If you want a tablet where book reading it the number one use I would get the Fire. Otherwise and If it was my decision I would select the Nexus 7 because i believe you will get the best Android support on that tablet. Samsung is good but slower upgrading Android. I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a Samsung Galaxy SIII phone. I downloaded Chrome Browser o my phone from the play store and It wasn't available for my Tab until Samsung did the ICS upgrade in August.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
