The First Gentleman had it right
I do reviews for a big company online. After testing dozens of tablets it easy to see where people are misled by people pushing tablets. This wasn't a bad article. It didn't really push anything. The best kind. I really think Apple and Android are the same at this point. It really has to do with the echo system. This is where some people don't understand. There are Rolls Royces and there are Pintos. For the young people those are cars. From the very Rich to the very poor. Apple only come in one flavor. Size is the only difference. With Android Some tablets are Bad to Bone some are not. Some have big screens some have small screens. Top Android tablet should be compared to Apple not the other way. It isn't hard to beat a pinto if your driving a Rolls. Windows who..... Thats just made me think..They are not even in the game.... If they do anything with the product it will be two years before they can even reach the same level. The first guy had it right all the way around. Oh I have Every tablet worth having. From Ipad to the Google. 18 tablet so far. I really love the devices.

Never Surface RT
I recently have a chance to compare Galaxy Notes 10.1 2014 and the new Windows Surface RT. Honestly there are not playing on the same ligue. The Samsung way outperformed the Surface RT on every aspect ( except Office). For people who really need Office, Polaris and particularly  QuickOffice are good enough alternative. Regarding MS compatibility aspect, QuickOffice is the best, then King Soft which is also free. In one hand, you have more than 1 million applications and other other hand, you have only 140.000. Not to mention that the new Surface RT is still very laggy  with Tegra 4.

some bargains
I would like to recommend to those constrain by a tight budget and still want to see what all the fuss is about the tablets, the $50-$100 price range ones.
You won't have the experience of an iPad, a Surface or (a high quality) Android, but for children, beginners; surf the web, emails, play games or watch some video are really good bargains.
Google Play is even available in some of them; which is a must have.
Some super store that I prefer not to mention has a couple of 7" for less than 70 bucks.
Not a bad deal if you ask me.

Tablet shopping surprises
The iPad retina display is the biggest example of "you must see it in person." I am using the original iPad mini (sans retina display) and loving it, but friends who have become accustomed to the retina can't go back. What else have people been suprised by in person while tablet shopping this weekend?
