A high-definition tablet -- consider the Google Nexus 10 with its stunning 2560- by 1600-pixel display -- is a great platform for digital magazines with full-color pages and beautiful photography. Digital mags often include interactive features not possible in print too. Zinio is a free magazine app that provides access to thousands of global titles, most of which aren't free but still reasonably priced. (For instance, an annual subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek costs $16.) Zinio for Android tablets has some nice perks, including an Explore section with hundreds of free articles. An honorable mention goes to Google Currents, another free magazine app worth checking out.

The optimized Android tablet apps have improved over the past year, but there's still a lot of room for improvement, and we need a lot more of them.

Maybe I recognize some icons, like Google Earth, but, really, can't we have some text on these slide shows?

re: 10 Great Android Apps For Tablets
Many of these apps are just as good on smart phones, and translate well to tablets. I would swap out my favorite weather app, WeatherBug Elite, for The Weather Channel's app, but otherwise I largely agree with many of the selections.
