These days, I decide to buy my first tablet. However, it is very hard for me to choose because there are so many tablets released this year. Currently, Apple has three iPad tablets products, iPad mini, iPad 2 and iPad with retina. Google also released their first android tablet, Google Nexus 7. At the same time, Amazon updated their Kindle Fire to Kindle Fire HD in 7 inch screen and 8.9 inch screen. Another big tablets vendor, Samsung also release several tablets in different models.
I don’t like the 10 inch tablets, because I can only use them when I am on the seat. It is very inconvenient when I stand in the subway and read articles. 10 inch tablets are very hard to hold in one hand. It is also very hard to bring a 10 inch tablet on the trip, especially in busy hours. Currently, I am readying news and emails on my phone. But the screen is small and the battery can not last long, I think I will prefer the 7 inch tablets. There are some very good 7 inch tablets products in the market.
Before iPad Mini is released, I though iPad Mini might be one good choice. However, the fact is iPad is not the real 7 inch tablet. It is too expensive, according to its hardware configuration. Its screen resolution is lower than Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. Its processor is even much poorer than Google Nexus 7. Once I heard that iPad mini has 1024 x 768 resolution with dual-core A5 processor, I was so frustrated that how Apple could release so low class product.
Hence, Google Nexus 7 is my next choice. Compare with Kindle Fire HD 7″
, another android tablet from Amazon, Google Nexus 7 has a more powerful processor. Though it is thicker by 0.29mm than Kindle Fire HD, it is lighter than Kindle Fire HD by 54 grams. The best advantage of Google Nexus 7 is that it installs the latest original android 4.1 Jelly Bean system, while Kindle Fire HD doesn’t have. In the future, Google Nexus 7 will be the first android device which can get the benefit from Android upgrade. Furthermore, Google Nexus 7 is only $199.
