Announced at Google's 2012 I/O conference, the Nexus 7 is the first tablet to be part of the Google-produced Nexus line of Android devices and is built by Asus. It was designed to compete against other budget tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet but differentiates itself with an unmodified version of Android 4.1.

Description

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is an Android 4.0 tablet with a 7-inch display. Similar in design to the original Galaxy Tab, the 10.5mm thin tablet has a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage.

The HP Slate 7 is a seven-inch tablet which runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Under the soft-touch rubber exterior, you'll find a dual-core 1.6GHz ARM Cortex-A9 chip of an undisclosed variety powering a 1024 x 600 resolution FFS+ LCD touchscreen display.

The smaller version of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD has a 1280 x 800 7-inch IPS screen. Other than the different display size, the Android-based tablet features the same dual-anntena 5GHz Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, OMAP 4470 processor from Texas Instruments, HDMI, and Bluetooth connectivity as the 8.9-inch Fire HD.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is a 7-inch tablet running Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, and has front and rear cameras, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor.

The 3G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is a 7-inch tablet with HSPA+ connectivity and runs Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, has 8GB or 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, front and rear cameras, and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor.
