A couple of years ago, Amazon changed the tablet market when it released the Kindle Fire, with its small screen and even smaller price tag. A few months later, Apple took our eyes to a luxurious spa when it launched the high-resolution iPad with Retina Display.

If you're looking for a small tablet and you're working on a budget, then you can do much worse than the Nexus 7.

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and Nexus 7

Samsung was the first Android phone maker to take a stab at tablets. Released in 2010, the Galaxy Tab was a 7-inch slate that cost more than the bigger and better iPad. But Samsung kept chipping away, making tablets in all shapes and sizes, and is now gaining on Apple’s shrinking lead. How does Samsung’s latest – the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 – compare to the Google/Asus Nexus 7?  Read More

Google and Asus are reportedly prepping the Nexus 7's sequel for a July release

Two years ago, the iPad was untouchable at the top of the tablet market. Apple still sells the most tablets, but several rival slates have made serious inroads. One of those is the Google and Asus lovechild that we know as the Nexus 7. Though a sequel to the budget tablet is unconfirmed, it's inevitable. And today we have some new details on the second-generation Nexus 7.  Read More

Read on, as we compare the specs – and other features – of these two mini tablets.  Read More

The second Nexus 7 is rumored to have thinner side bezels, and a sharper display

If you're shopping for a budget tablet, you can do much worse than the Nexus 7. It's a quad-core workhorse, you can easily hold it in one hand, and its US$200 price is right. But there's always room for improvement. Though the Nexus 7's display is sharper than those of rival tablets, it isn't quite "Retina." That may soon change, with reports that Google and Asus are working on a 1080p follow-up.  Read More
