Android 7-Inch Tablets

Small Android tablets went big in 2012. The Barnes and Noble Nook and Amazon Kindle Fire media tablets kicked it off early in the year. Then, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Asus' Google Nexus 7 came in to take Android tablets to the goal. Model variety means feature choices. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, for example, has a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera not found in other small tablets. It also has a microSD card slot that lets you inexpensively add up to 32 GB more media storage. The Nexus 7 gives you faster processing, models with more internal memory, and a clean Google Android user interface. The best news is that they all have new lower prices for the 2012 holiday season. Figure on spending about $200 for any of these Android tablets.
