There are a lot of different Android tablets, but sometimes it can be a time-consuming headache to find the best ones. ZDNet has a helpful roundup of the best Android tablets for this month, and there's even one from Nvidia that will appeal to Android gamers.

According to ZDNet:

That's a pretty good list, but before you run off to buy one of them I'd recommend poking around at Amazon first. You can see a general list of Android tablets at Amazon or peek through the best-selling tablets list.

Amazon will likely have most of the tablets listed in the roundup plus many others, and you will also be able to read customer reviews to see if what ZDNet says actually matches up with the experience of real-world customers.

Sometimes even the best roundups miss problems and headaches that pop up in devices, so it's always a good idea to seek out feedback by people who have actually purchased the product and used it before buying one yourself.

If I were going to buy a new Android tablet, I'd probably go with the Nexus 7. There's something about the smaller form factor that really appeals to me, but your mileage may vary. Some folks like the bigger screens and I can understand the appeal. But smaller works better for me.
