These days, it seems like every consumer electronic company is coming out with a tablet of its own. While the Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy tab still dominates much of the market share, other makers such as Asus (EEE Pad Transformer), Motorola (Xoom) is gaining popularity for providing desirable features such as USB ports and docking stations.
But tablet frenzy does not stop there. Today, even bookstores/E- retailers are coming out with their own brand of tablets to seize a piece of the pie. The latest new comers include the highly awaited Amazon’s Kindle Fire as well as Barnes and Noble’s Nook Tablet.[quote style=”boxed”]What’s great about these tablets is their ease of purchase and downloading ebooks from their respective stores. They also provide fast processing speeds, a huge library of apps, the ability to watch flash, and they are priced much cheaper than other tablets in the market right now.
Good and cheap, what’s more are you asking for really.[/quote]
