The culmination to a long string of rumors, the iPad mini has a 7.9-inch display, offering the iPad experience in a form factor smaller than the traditional iPad's 9.7-inch display. The 1024x768 resolution of that smaller display is the same as the iPad 2, so any apps made for the larger iPad will also run on the iPad mini.

Description

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.

The Barnes & Noble Nook HD is an Android 4.0-based tablet featuring a 7-inch IPS display with a 1440 x 900 resolution. It comes with 8GB or 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, supports 32GB of external memory, and is quoted with a 10.5-hour battery life.
