If you're looking to save dough and don't mind a smaller screen, the Nexus 7 is still the reigning king of small-sized tablets.

Throw in its superb viewing angles and mighty strong brightness output, the Nexus 10’s display is easily visible in outdoor conditions with the sun bearing down upon us.

It has a strong quad core CPU, a greater than full HD IPS display, good speakers, expandable storage, USB host support and multi-window multi-tasking.

With this LCD IPS display, LG has just nailed the balance between blue and red, resulting in a perfect color temperature of about 6588 K (kelvin), with the reference point being 6500 K. That's pretty much unprecedented for such a display so far.

I wasn't kidding about it being sharp; it has a wide viewing angle, it's easy to view outdoors in sunlight, and text and menu icons look smooth.
