Verge score: 9.0 Verge score: 8.9

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

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 Jelly Bean. The + Mobile version adds 3G wireless to the tablet and comes alongside an upgrade to 32 GBs of storage.

Adding some minor updates to the tablet that started it all, the 4th generation iPad drops the classic 30-pin dock connector for a Lightning port and upgrades to an A6X processor that offers double the graphics performance of the A5X. The tablet remains the same beyond that, with the same form factor and display as the 3rd generation model.

The MediaPad 7 Lite by Huawei is an Android 4.0-based tablet with a metal unibody shell and 3G connectivity. It has a 7-inch IPS display, a 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of internal storage, a .3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3.2-megapixel rear camera.
