We really like what Amazon is offering with its Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch slate, a competitor to the Nexus 7 and the iPad mini with Retina Display. Like the others, it packs some high-end features but it also comes with an affordable price tag and access to Amazon's vast array of content.

It's lightweight, it features a beautiful display, and it comes with Amazon's services baked in, services that ensure that users will never go without a great book, movie or song to listen to. It's an extremely well-balanced device and it's a device that would make a great first tablet.

    None of these are anywhere near the best tablets. Android and iOS tablets have very limited functionality. You can nost install true desktop programs like Cisco Packet Tracer for example on them. I believe that Windows 8/8.1 tablets are the best due to their functionality and what they can do.

    Apple should follow suit and make a hybrid tablet/laptop that runs OS X.

    You left out a great tablet: the Sony Xperia. Yo have to try it. Don’t just go by the reviews. I had it for a month and it has replaced my ipad air and Samsung 10.1

    I agree with Fulaman. Android tablets do have limited functionality and their aesthetics are ugly. The interface which looks horrible on tablets looks like a blowed up phone UI. On the other hand I believe the Surface 2 and Pro should be listed being the most productive tablets. Their UI has been optimized for use on tablets and I believe the iPad air is not far behind and it even might be equal to the Surface 2. Even though it is not as productive it is a refined, perfected tablet the same as the Microsoft Surface. Microsoft Surface Pro’s can run desktop programs and the Surface 2 has Microsoft Office built in. Microsoft has premium services such as OneDrive, Outlook,Bing,Skype,IE11, and Microsoft Office which are way better than Google’s services. Apple provides similar in quality. However, Microsoft has created a true synced environment with Windows 8.1 on your computer and your tablet and Windows Phone on your phone and Xbox on your TV all in sync and running similar UI which is a bonus point. If you think about it the closest company who has such ecosystem could be be Sony but they do not use it to their advantage.
