Re: Mini
I find the Mini handy, but still feel like I overpaid for what for me is pretty much just a web browser, Netflix/Amazon player and occasional notetaking device. I bought a Mini because I had a lot of data in an iPad-only app (Penultimate) and was switching from an iPad 2. Mini's a fine device, but for those activities I probably should've considered lower priced Nexus and not caved in to the legacy data issue.

Re: How did the Nook HD not make it?!
I agree with GAProgrammer. The Nook HD+ is a good deal for a 9" tablet, Even the 32 GB model @ $179 seems to be a bargain.

How did the Nook HD not make it?!
The new Nook HD+ from Barnes and Noble is incredible and I don't see how it didn't make the list. You can now get all apps directly from the Goole PLay store and you get a 9" tablet for only $149! It's an incredible deal and if you are an average tablet user, it has all the bells and whistles with a great display and amazing price.

 

We have an iPad2, Nook Color, Kindle Fire 7" and for the price, you can't beat the Nook HD+ (in my opinion of course).

Re: Most wanted tablet
I think that one of the most useful tablet models is the Apple iPad Mini with LTE. It's not a huge device, which makes it good for on the run. Additionally, the LTE component makes it a great data device no matter where you are.

Well, depending on the wireless carrier.

Re: Mini
TeresaW, 

I see an upcoming problem with that i8. I would be surprised if Apple doesn't respond to this new i-series of products that are not Apple. 

As for previous similar cases, which ended up in court, this Ramos i-series will just confuse consumers. 

I wonder why some companies have the imagination of an amaeba.

Re: Mini

The world's thinnest 8" tablet... the Ramos i8 -- also launches next week, with a stylish and sleek design; along with the durability of an aluminum-nickel frame.

Ramos Technology has partnered with Intel to introduce the Ramos i-Series with 8", 9", 10" and 12" Android tablet models ($199-$299) and all feature Intel's Clovertrail processor and HD-displays.

The new Ramos i8 ($199) from Ramos technology offers the Intel processor and a 7.9-inch HD screen -- Intel's Cloverfield processor with Hyper-Threading technology, runs four threads simultaneously for strong performance and multitasking.

Compared to a 7-inch tablet,  the 8" size offers 40% more screen space, which makes quite a difference in viewing content; yet is still compact and easy to carry in one hand.

The site TabletSprint also offers the Ramos series of tablets.

"Out of all the tablets mentioned I think apple I pod is the best compared with all others."

But the iPod is not a tablet. :/

iPad Air
Apple's iPad Air is by far the best tablet in the market. Perfect working size, light weight, battery life, and a great selection of Apps makes it a great work companion when you are on the road. 

As for white tablets I would say they are Okay for enetertainment, basic Web surfing, and as the first device for kids.
