Google's 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 sheds 2mm and 50g compared to its older brother, but still manages to add in a rear camera and a high-res, 1920x1200 323 PPI 7-inch display. The tablet runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and comes in Wi-Fi only and LTE flavors, the latter of which is capable of running on Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile's LTE networks. Google is promising 10 hours of battery while web browsing over Wi-Fi.

Description

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.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a tablet from Samsung, designed to fit into the range between the smaller Galaxy Note II smartphone and larger Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Like the other members of the Galaxy Note line, it features support for an upgraded version of Samsung's S Pen, this time following hover support with 3rd party apps and control of hardware keys. It also has an 8-inch, 1280 x 800 screen, up to 32GB of internal storage, and a quad-core, 1.6Ghz Samsung Exynos processor.

The 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is a tablet running Android 4.2, Jelly Bean, and has front and rear cameras, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

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.
