The Android tablet market has exploded in recent months with loads of technology brands clambering to produce a wide range of devices. From the very small to the very large, the outlandish to the more sensible- there are hundreds to choose from with their own individual pros and cons. So we’ve come up with a handy guide that should help you decide which Android tablet should be under your tree this Christmas.
Value: Google Nexus 7
If you’re not looking to break the bank with your Christmas Android tablet purchase then the Google Nexus 7 could be just what you’re after. Without compromising on quality, Google have produced a solid, simple tablet that does the basics but does them really well. For around two hundred pounds it’s a must-buy for any price-conscious consumer and still holds its own in terms of performance and style.
Gaming: Sony Tablet S
Sony have long been one of the most respected electronics brands in the world but have only just come into the tablet market. If you’re already a fan of Sony’s most successful gaming machine, the Sony Tablet S is perfect as it has access to the entire back catalogue of original PlayStation games that should keep you entertained well into 2013 and beyond. The Tablet S has the high build quality and excellent specs one would associate with a Sony product and looks great too.
Portability: Huawei MediaPad 7
Not all tablets are that easy to transport; some are bulky, heavy and require their own substantial space in your bag. But the Huawei MediaPad 7 is so small and light that you needn’t even carry a bag with you as it can fit straight into your pocket. Its size is matched in its pricing making it one of the cheaper tablets around. If you don’t mind a slight compromise in terms of power and performance, the MediaPad 7 is an excellent, portable tablet for the style-conscious buyer.
High-End: Asus Transformer Pad Infinity
For an Android tablet at the higher end of the market, the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity is a great choice. It not only boasts amazing screen resolution but offers maximum performance, power and versatility; making it well worth the hefty price tag. It comes with a keyboard dock so that you can get some serious work done as well as watch movies and play games on the move. This tablet has it all and then some; a must for the technology connoisseur with cash to spare.
