We've finally reached an abundance of riches when it comes to tablets. They're fantastic devices, but you may still be puzzled about which one is right for you. Here's some comparisons to help you make up your mind. I'm not going to compare the definite losers, the BlackBerry and WebOS tablets, both of which where market duds. The Windows 8 tablets have not arrived yet, and chances are that they'll be way too late to the party when they do. Currently they're expected in late 2012.
There's a wide variety of Android tablets on the market now, and there are several sizes and shapes to choose from. The Android Market has a large variety of apps, even if it's not as large as Apple, and they've been actively recruiting developers to make more. They also have no problem with users installing apps outside the Android Market.The interface on Android Honeycomb is similar to Apples, yet offering better customization features through widgets. It's missing the easy parental controls of Apple, however.Android tablets have more innovation in hardware configurations, such as tablets that transform into netbooks, tablets that take 3D pictures, and tablets with 4G signals. They've also got more flexibility with price, and you can now get an Android tablet for around $100 cheaper than you can an iPad.
The Kindle Fire is also a seven inch tablet compared to the mostly ten inch iPad and Android tablets. There's no camera on it, and the battery only lasts for eight hours, compared to the mostly ten hour life for other tablets.
