Although its Android operating system owns the lion's share of the tablet market after iOS, Google's hardware response to the iPad is the Nexus series of tablets. Manufactured by Asus, the Nexus tablets come in 7-inch and 10-inch varieties. They access the Google Play store and come with Android Jelly Bean.
Meant for users on the go, the Nexus 7 can be added on T-Mobile or AT&T mobile data plans and runs for up to 10 hours before needing a recharge. A 1280x800 display shows videos, games, and eBooks with ease.
As more of a stationary or laptop replacement oriented tablet (just add Bluetooth keyboard), the Nexus 10 lets you customize your homescreen, apps, email, and more for multiple users. You can edit photos intuitively on-screen, and the screen's an absurd 2560x1600 pixel affair - essentially the answer to an iPad 3 or 4's Retina display. Google+ Hangouts and HD video content shine on this tablet, as does a version of Google Earth specially updated for the Nexus 10.
