It's pretty safe to assume that most people either have, or want, a tablet. For those who are in the market though, trying to find the perfect slate can be a daunting task. With all of the options, even the savviest consumers can easily get overwhelmed. Not to mention how much research is involved in making an educated purchase decision – I will personally sometimes spend weeks researching and comparing products before making a major purchase. Fortunately, there's a recently-launched resource available for tablet shoppers that can not only drastically cut research time, but makes it easy to find key information about most of the relevant devices in the category.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

I'm talking about TabletRocket.com, a new site that makes comparing tablets to one another a simple and informative process. TabletRocket uses the most relevant and comparable criteria to throw tablets in a head-to-head deathmatch where the best is then crowned the victor. It's not just about winning and losing, either – you'll find full specs for both devices, along with quick summaries and performance profiles. It's pretty in-depth.

If spec-for-spec or benchmark comparisons aren't your thing, don't fret – TabletRocket also highlights what reviews from popular sites are saying, as well as how each particular device is faring in Amazon reviews. This way you get a quick look at not only what the pros are saying, but also how everyday users feel about the devices. Hard to beat that.

If you're looking for very specific features from a device, TabletRocket can help you out there too. For example, let's say you're trying to get the most bang for your buck. TabletRocket can help you there. Or maybe you're in search of the best browsing experience. TabletRocket has you covered there too. And those are just a few examples of the info you'll find.

If you're not in the market for a new tablet, however, there are a few other sites worth checking out in the "Rocket" family: CameraRocket, PhoneRocket, and ReaderRocket.

Giveaway

To commemorate the launch of TabletRocket, the guys have hooked us up with two 32GB Nexus 7s (2013). US winners will get the LTE version, while the Wi-Fi version will be available to international winners.

    What I value most is the capabiltiy of being able to carry it with me everywhere and not have it cost me an arm and a leg.

  • Kevin Faaborg

    Honestly, i find durability the most important. Let it survive daily life without needing a Otterbox Defender.

  • Jody Newton

    What I value most in a tablet is portability. I'd love to be able to whip my laptop out in the middle class and take notes, but it is simply too large and bulky for this task to be done simply. With the tablet, however, I could take notes with ease without having to drag around an extra fifteen pounds everyday.

  • richelle bowers

    afforadability

  • beelzebuub

  • Kevin Kintner

    Portability!

  • Nick D

    All of the above. I can't agree with Cameron more, I think the 8 inch size is the perfect balance of being as big as possible to get stuff done, but still being very portable and easy to handle, so it's a bit disappointing to me that the industry seems to have pretty much settled on 7. Then, of course, it needs to work well and not hit the wallet too hard.

  • dash_ok

    performance of course

  • HDC

    I value portability as well as cost

    I would use a Tablet primarily for the University, so it should be portable an have an battery that bringth me through the day.

  • Akash Kothawale

    Simplicity. A Tab is something I'd use when I come home back after work and want relief. If using it is pain in the *body* then I'd rather to use it. Hence Simplicity

  • gervai5

    My kids borked my PlayBook so I need a new one and this one (N7) is pure bang for buck in terms perf and sets the minimum bar for android tablets!

  • dapbmonkey4u

    I would use the tablet to interact with my children to help with reading and math...of course some movies too. Battery life and simplicity would be my highest priorities.

  • Aman Halani

    Most important in a tablet is performance and affordability!

  • MyNameIsLOS

    I played with the new nexus 7 for the first time the other day, man it feels so right in my hand. So that would be the thing I value the most, how good it holds. I work at a store that sells all kinds of random tablets, and they feel awkward. For holding a 7in or bigger device, I think premium build is a must. I would love to win one! Good luck everybody!

  • Yiannis Xenophontos

    The screen

    Best performance for the size would be the main factor for me. Ease of use comes in a close second though....

    The most important thing for a tablet is the portability and ease of handling. If it is too big it just isn't very useful for me.
