iPad Vs Samsung Galaxy Note Vs Google Nexus 7: Top 5 Tablets of 2012

Yes, tablets have been around for a couple of years now. But 2012 will go down in history for giving tablets the mass appeal. Prices got dropped, and even the elite Apple got into the fight with its own iPad Mini. It sure was an eventful year, tablet-wise too. Today, we’re giving you our take on the best 5 tablets we came across during 2012:

Apple iPad (4th Generation): We know, we can’t help it – the iPad features at the top of the list, despite all the competition it has faced this year. iOS works so smooth, it’s built to near perfection, and with such an extensive array of apps, the fourth generation iPad definitely is one of the most versatile tablets out in the market.

Google Nexus 7: When the makers of Android set out to make an Android-based tablet, you know can’t go wrong with it. And the Google Nexus tablet does everything we’d hoped it would do, and more. With an amazing price-tag of $199, the Nexus 7 became one of the best-selling gadgets of 2012.

Apple iPad Mini: The competition in the 7-inch tablet space was already huge. So when Apple decided to step into the rink, everyone waited with bated breath to see what they had to offer. Sure, it’s pricier than many decent 7-inch tabs, but if all you wanted to do was own an Apple product, you’d look at the iPad Mini as an investment of sorts and feel just as happy.

Kindle Fire HD: Amazon brought out the upgraded Kindle Fire tablet with an HD screen and took our hearts away. Priced similar to the Nexus, it brought its own appstore for users to pick a number of apps and made reading books and magazines on a tablet so much more fun. We also love its big brother, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9, for its unique mix of portability and performance.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1: Our list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t mention a Samsung product, and for this year, we’ve picked the Galaxy Note 10.1 among its range of tablets to feature in the top 5. With its breathtaking AMOLED display and its S-Pen, it really lived up to its name and made taking notes and sketches a breeze!… Read the rest
