I originally was set on getting the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" but now I'm torn between that, the Samsung Tab 2 7", Asus TF300, and Nexus 7. There are features I like about each one.
HDMI: Asus and Kindle fire have this, but will I miss it if I don't have it? I thought it would be nice while traveling to easily plug into a hotel TV with hdmi.
Android: I like that Nexus 7 runs jelly bean. Will the Samsung and Asus upgrade to that? But with the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, do I need that in a tablet?
Amazon content: Yes, I'm primarily an amazon consumer for entertainment but I'd like the option of google's store since my music library is already in google play.
Apps: I'd like to use dropbox, netflix, amazon prime instant video (whether through a workaround or organically), and kindle app. Will the non kindle tablets read aloud through the kindle app? I don't play any games, but like apps like radio.com, iheartradio, pandora, etc. Is HBO Go available on all? I'd love to use swype beta's keyboard and I haven't been able to put that on my original kindle fire. The cloud print app would be amazing as well.
I'm really torn. I also looked at the ipad mini which was nice, but I'm not really tied to apple products in any way and don't really have a desire to start, especially for the price tag.
The Asus is on sale now at HHG, does anyone have an opinion on that one? As long as I can somehow get amazon prime video and other amazon content as well as amazon apps, I'm leaning towards that for the features and price tag. Is there something I'm overlooking?
