The Bottom Line The 8GB Archos 80 G9 delivers a complete Android experience at a low price, but its rough design, low-quality camera, and awkward button placement make it feel rushed to market. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. The Nook HD+ is a low-price, quality entry point into the world of tablets, especially now that it has full Google Play support. Despite its Android 4.0 update and slightly upgraded processor, the Archos 101 G9 Turbo's glacial lag and cumbersome build makes this tablet safe to skip over. If you're an early adopter willing to forget everything you know about navigating a computer, the Surface tablet could replace your laptop. Everyone else: wait for more apps.
