In Pictures: 7 solid 7-inch tablets that rival the iPad mini (and cost less)

The best 7-inch tablets available today, including tablets from ASUS, Samsung, Lenovo and HTC. And all 7 of these 7-inchers cost less than Apple's brand new iPad mini tablet.

Google Nexus 7 by ASUS

Description: Google's 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet, made by ASUS, is the only tablet that runs the latest Android OS, v4.1 "Jelly Bean." That means the Nexus 7 is the only tablet with Google Now functionality, which "learns" your usage patterns and provides driving direction to frequently visited destinations, local weather reports, sports scores for your favorite teams and more—all before you search for them.

Notable Specs: 1280 x 800 display; NFC; 10 hours of battery life during Web browsing; quad-core processor; no cellular networks support.

Price: The 8GB, Wi-Fi only Nexus 7 cost $199.99, and the 16GB version costs $249.99 via Google. (Rumors suggest a 32GB cellular Nexus 7 is in the works.)

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
