    Kindle Fire HD review: A better Kindle, but not a better tablet

    Amazon's newest Kindle, the 7-in. Kindle Fire HD, is a great buy if you're an Amazon customer, but it falls short as a general-purpose tablet.

    Google Nexus 7 tablet review: solid, but not revolutionary

    Posted July 7, 2012 - 7:05 am

    The Google Nexus 7 tablet resets expectations of what an inexpensive tablet can and should be. Starting at $199, the Nexus 7 clearly guns for Amazon's same-priced but lesser quality Kindle Fire, which runs Amazon's limited flavor of Android. Make no mistake: Of today's 7-inch Android tablets, the Nexus 7 is the one to beat, and it is handily one of the best-executed Android tablets of any size you can buy. In some ways, that's not saying much; for as much as it does well--it has a tremendous 10-plus hour battery life, and it produces reasonably clear text and accurate colors--the Nexus 7 stumbles by leaving out an expansion slot. You need to step up to the 16GB $249 version for the Nexus 7 to make a sensible purchase, and even then you'll be settling short of the ideal tablet you really want.
