The long awaited update to the original iPad mini, the iPad mini with Retina display has the same size 7.9-inch display, but boasts a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, the same as it's larger sibling, the iPad Air.

Description

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.

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 Kindle Fire HDX is Amazon's latest refresh of the Kindle Fire lineup. Along with boosted specs over the previous generation Kindle Fire HD, including a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, it also features Amazon's Mayday, a guided screen sharing help process with a live customer representative built into the Fire OS.
