Tablet Comparisons

Here are some of the most popular brands of tablets and a short description of each to help you decide which one is right for you.

  • Amazon Kindle Fire – The Amazon Kindle is no longer just for reading e-books: Amazon has broken into the tablet market with its Kindle Fire series. These devices are very reasonably priced and syncs seamlessly with your Amazon account. The Kindle also boasts the longest battery life in the tablet world. The MayDay feature makes the Kindle Fire the best in tech support: with one push of a button, you get immediate access to a live support agent.
  • Apple iPad – Apple’s tablets are the most expensive on the market, but for good reason. The retina display is something that once you view, makes it difficult to settle for less pixels per inch. Not only does the iPad boast the sleekest designs of the tablet market, but the Apple App Store offers more apps optimized for the tablet than any other competitor.
  • ASUSTek Tablets – ASUSTek, commonly referred to as ASUS, produces tablets in both Android and Windows operating systems, depending on the model. These tablets are some of the most affordable on the market. The ASUS Transformer Pad is excellent for gaming but less portable than its sister tablet, the ASUS Memo Pad.
  • Barnes & Noble Nook HD – The Barnes & Noble Nook was previously just an e-reader but, like its long-time competitor the Kindle, has entered the tablet market with its latest versions. Nook devices support multiple user profiles, allowing each person in your family to customize their tablet experience.
  • Google Nexus – Google paired with ASUS to create the company’s only tablet. The Google Nexus extends your internet experience, seamlessly integrating all the Google products – Chrome, Drive, Play – into one device. This tablet boasts a powerful Snapdragon processor 2GB of RAM.
  • Microsoft Surface – Your options from Microsoft are very limited – the only tablet they offer is the Microsoft Surface. Unlike most other tablets, the Microsoft Surface uses a Windows operating system which makes it more similar to a desktop computer. The ability to add on hardware and connect to Windows PCs puts the surface on the same level as many laptops.
  • Samsung Galaxy – Samsung offers tablets in a variety of sizes up to 12 inches. Samsung’s tablets cost about the same as Apple’s iPads and certainly keep their competitors on their toes. Some of the largest tablets, while being excellent for watching movies or videos, are very bulky and awkward to hold.
  • Sony Xperia – Sony’s only tablet is incredibly thin and light, rivaling Apple’s iPad in design. It is also very durable. Because it is made by Sony, the speaker quality is excellent and can simulate surround sound for videos.
Before you purchase a tablet, determine what you want and how much you are willing to spend. Then make sure to do your research and find the one that best fits your needs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
