Best Alternate Tablets: Worthy Watchout

This feature is for all those users who are bored. Pretty abrupt for starters isn’t it. But that is how abrupt is the boredom people have right now of using the devices of similar styling and performance. For a feature let me talk about the tablet scenario in this edition of my alternate machines presentation. Heard of an iPad and you would say yes. Let me rephrase and say have you heard of a Samsung Galaxy Tab or a Galaxy Nexus Tab and you would probably say, are you dumb. I would take it really well because these are all we talk about when we talk about tablets. Even though the tablet market has lot of other options to speak about still because of the brand following Apple, Samsung and Google commands, the iPads and the Galaxy tabs are what people would talk about when discussing tablets.

However apart from these so called elites of the tablet industry there are a few others which perform just as good and even are priced below the iPads and Galaxy Tabs. In this edition I am listing out some other tablets that you would definitely love and will leave you machinehappy.

Best Others Speak:

In this exclusive roundup of the best alternative tablets that you can get I am covering the following based on their performance specifications, pricing specifications and the happiness factor associated to the machine. The list goes something like:

  • Toshiba Excite 10-32 GB
  • Archos 80 G9 Turbo 16 GB
  • Barnes & Noble Nook HD+
  • Nabi XD
These particular tablets make it to my list because they are symbolic of those other tablets which are still not followed much in the market but are actually quite as much worth a look as the iPads and the Samung Galaxy tabs.
The Toshiba Excite 10 32 GB is the next level tablet out of the Toshiba stables post its release of the lighest and slimmest tablet in the world the Toshiba 10 LE. The Toshiba Excite 10 is worth a look into because of the fact that it actually feature more of the tablet features then rather being just a slim machine. The Excite 10 is really handy for all the frequent travellers who move around a lot. Alongwith being light in weight it is also great to handle. For people on the look out for not much of a heavy package in terms of computing power while travelling around, this one’s a very good option. For a quick look check out the following specs.
  • Pros: The Toshiba Excite 10-32 GB features huge expandable memory feature upto 128 GB. It also has a Tegra 3 induced CPU performance which implies it is swift in processing speed. The designing and styling on the tablet is very conductive to comfortable usage.
  • Cons: The Toshiba Excite 10 is well endowed, and there’s no doubt about that. But inspite of all these capabilities the tablet is surely overpriced especially since the camera and other multi-media performances are not that impressive to be raved about.
  • Why Buy: The Toshiba Excite 10-32 GB delivers on as much of a performance as can be expected out of a tablet that is so good to carry on travels but the pricing is definitely steep considering its being priced as much as a iPad.
  • Price: $ 399.99
The Archos was one of the earlier tablets bringing in android operating system into the market. The Archos 80 G9 Turbo is a 8 inches display sporting tablet that is light and easy to use. However the easy to use part of the tablet is because of the simplistic and minimal design on it. This tablet is for the people who would prefer a cheap workable tablet to carry around. To know in specs check out.
  • Pros: The Archos 80 G9 carries a light body combined with a kickstand that adds to the comfort of using the tablet. The Archos 80 G9 carries a Android 4.0.3  which makes it a good performing tablet with a cheap price.
  • Cons: The Archos 80 G9 Turbo is definitely a low priced android experience tablet but the point it misses out on is the functionality ease because of its industrial design which doesn’t give it a better feel then most under $99 tablets in the market that emanate a cheap outlook.
  • Why Buy: The Archos 80 G9 isn’t a premium tablet that you would look out for, but if its a cheap well doable tablet you are on the look out for then this one is the one for you.
  • Price: $ 199.99
Barnes and Noble Nook is a brand that is identified as a reader specific tab with very limited media utility attached to it. Its definitely one of the lower priced good utility and averagely good looking tablets around. The Nook HD+ features very enhanced user interface which is simple and easy to use for all. Thats the reason the Nook HD+ has been termed as the family tablet. For more check out the pros and cons and the reason to get it.
  • Pros: The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ has a very low competitive price and sports extremely well endowed user interface and also a micro SD slot. The designing on it is simple and also comfortable in terms of utility. Furthermore its a good tablet to carry around because of its light weight
  • Cons: The only con that I can spot out in the Barnes & Noble Nook is the limitation it actuates in terms of media and application support. I don’t say that it doesn’t have them. It definitely does feature popular media features as well as its own collection of applications, however if you are looking at the highest end of apps, the Nook HD+ might not be the one to look at.
  • Why Buy: The Nook HD+ is a worthy buy if its a combination of competitive price, good performance and well endowed looks you are searching for in your tablet.
  • Price: $269.00
The Nabi isn’t a tablet that one hears about from day to day. Manufactured by Fuhu, this tablet however is a pretty consistent performer in the market.The 10.1-inch tablet ships with a Tegra 3 processor, runs Android 4.1, features an IPS screen, NFC capability. The Nabi XD is basically targeted at the younger generation of teenagers considering its styling and performance offerings.For an outlook on how the tablet behaves once you have bought it, do check out the speak attached.
  • Pros: The Nabi XD feature NFC based rules for apps which makes it possible for users to use smart application selection and deployment based on needs of time and location. Its competitively priced for a quality tablet for the teenager user genre.
  • Cons: The cons on the Nabi XD cannot be previewed in terms of its designing or features, however considering the user segment that its targeting it might be slightly over priced.
  • Why Buy: The Nabi XD is different. Its not your conventional tablet that looks like a smart device. It is colored well and makes quite a splash as a device worth having.
  • Price: $249
In this edition concluded I have made an attempt to cover a few tablets that don’t make it into your wishlist now but are worth a look if you are looking for a tablet desperately and are not in line to get that iPad or a Samsung Galaxy Tab. Watch out for more in this section in the coming weeks.
