Need a new tablet? You're in luck, because the selection just got a little wider today, thanks to new offerings from ASUS and Samsung.

ASUS Transformer Pad 300


If you're in the market for a nice high-spec-low-price 10.1-inch tablet, then the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 is a hard one to beat. It's packing specs pretty close to the Transformer Prime, but thanks to a slightly lower-quality display and plastic body, comes in at around $150 less than the Prime. And since it packs the Transformer name, a keyboard dock will also be available, essentially turning this into an Android laptop.


  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS display
  • 1.2Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • Plastic chassis
  • Android 4.0

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7


If a 10.1-inch tablet just isn't your thing and you'd rather have something a bit more pocket-able (and affordable), then the new 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 is an excellent choice. While not as powerful or full-featured as the TF300, the Tab 2 is no slouch:

  • 7-inch 1024x600 TFT display
  • 1GHz dual-core TI processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 3.2MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
  • Android 4.0 with Touchwiz UX

The real story with this tablet isn't its specs though - it's the price. You can score this little guy for $250 right now, making it one of the most affordable full-featured Android tablets on the market.
