Top picks for Android tablets

C. Schmidt
The list author says: "These are my top picks for Android based tablets, covering all price ranges and subject to editing as new tablets hit the market. Models are in my order of preference.

If you're wondering why the Kindle Fire is not on this list, there is a simple explanation. The Kindle Fire is a next gen Kindle, Amazon's version of the Nook Color, a device for Amazon media consumption with some tablet features rather than a mobile computing device."
