Android Buyers Guide

It’s not hard to find a Google Android tablet. Samsung, LG, Asus, Toshiba, Dell, Acer, HP, Amazon and others too numerous to name rely on Google’s mobile operating system to power their tablets. The devices range in size from seven inches to larger than a foot, and cover the spectrum of processor speeds and capability. Many Android tablets are Google-sanctioned devices, which feature Google’s proprietary apps like Gmail and Google Maps, and have access to the Google Play Store for licensed apps. Others, like the Kindle Fire series, run a heavily-modified version of Android, and are restricted from the Google Play Store, but have access to third-party channels like the Amazon Appstore.
