The 5 Best Android Tablets You Can Buy Today
Thinking of buying a new tablet anytime soon? Well, this list ought to make that shopping anxiety fret away.
1. Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700
Ever since the beautiful Transformer Prime launched last year, Asus have been attempting to catch on with the iPad. Well, with their new Transformer infinity they might be catching on. The tablet runs on Android 4.9 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and boasts a whopping 64 GB of internal storage ( if that’s too much for you,it also comes in 32 GB). Its width is 263 mm, depth 8.5 mm, height 180.8 mm and weighs 586g. Its display type is 10.1 in LCD TFT active matrix and the resolution is 1920 × 1200. The processor is Krait and the clock speed comes at 1.5 GHz. Moving on to the camera, the front camera’s pixel effectiveness is 2 megapixels and the rear camera ranks in at 8 with a Single LED Flash as well as an Autofocus. As for the most important part; the battery life, it is not removable, the estimated capacity is 25 Wh and the quoted use time comes in at 10 hrs.
The Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Android tablet will be launched in U.S. retail store shelves approximately on July 16th.
2. Toshiba Excite 7.7
Toshiba, the well renowned PC manufacturer, ironically does not seem to have a clear grasp on the tablet market. First, with their huge and bulky “Thrive” that came looking more of a laptop. Then, with their “Excite 10 LE”, which was the absolute opposite wanting everything to be super thin.
Taking a more mainstream take now with their newest editions; the Excite 7.7 and Excite 10. The new versions are NVIDA Tegra 3 powered with Android 4.9 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Moving on to the hardware; it is 0.3 inches thick, 381 grams with Stereo speakers. You have the option to choose between a 16 GB internal memory or a 32 GB with a microSD external storage support. The rear camera is 5 megapixels and the front is 2. You can choose between the Excite 7.7, Excite 10 and Excite 13.
3. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Samsung, the tech giant, are changing up their approach towards the tablets realm. It seems they would rather settle for a mediocre position in the race between the iPad and the Transformer Prime. Here is a quick overview of their latest Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Similarly to the 7.0, it has solid but unspectacular specs (a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 1280 x 800 TFT display, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, dual cameras), plus Android 4.0, all for a very reasonable $399.99. Of course, even at that price there’s competition from the still-on-sale iPad 2, the Transformer Pad TF300, and plenty others. Does the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2 find the same balance its 7-inch predecessor did, or is your $400 better spent elsewhere?
4. Sony Tablet S
The Tablet S shows that the consumer electronics giant has not lost its design mojo over the years, as this model brings Sony’s authenticity and flair to the tablet market. What makes the Tablet S unique you ask? Well, for starters, the tablet’s tapered design. Sony says the design was influenced by the curve of a folded-around magazine. The Tablet S has 1GB of RAM onboard and 16GB or 32GB of storage hardwired.
The display itself is fairly standard; 1280 x 800, and there are two cameras on the device: a 3-megapixel shooter on the front, and a 5-megapixel model on the backside. The device boasts a 9.4-inch screen and weighs in at 603 grams. As for its battery life, it can hold up to an estimated 6.2 hrs.
5. Acer Iconia Tab A510
Looking a lot like its predecessor, the Acer Iconia Tab A500, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 system is always a pleasure. The A510 has a wealth of connectivity: a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a micro-USB port just under the screen, a micro-HDMI port and a cover-protected microSD card slot (for up to 32 GB of additional storage). It also features a 5-Megapixel photo/video sensor on the back and a 2-Megapixel sensor on the front. The capacitive touchscreen uses PVA technology and has 1280 x 800 resolution. The A510 has a colossal battery under the hood which will give a reported 15 hours of life letting you surf, watch movies and game for that bit longer. It doesn’t weigh very much at 680 grams, but it is slightly heavier than competing tablets. Its width is 10.2 in, depth 0.43 in, height 6.9 inches.
