Nvidia Shield Tablet

Yes, you can play games on your iPad, Galaxy, Fire, or whatever other tablet you're carrying around. But if you're worried about your tablet's gaming prowess above all else, perhaps you should be carrying the Nvidia Shield Tablet. With the ridiculously powerful Tegra K1 GPU at its heart, the Shield delivers outstanding graphics performance, whether it's on the 8-inch, 1080p screen, or on a 4K television connected via mini-HDMI. Other features include an optional dedicated controller, optional LTE, up to 32GB of on-board storage, and 5 megapixel cameras in the both the front and rear.

  • Nook GlowLight

    When you choose to compete with giants like Amazon, you've definitely got your work cut out for you — but Barnes & Noble's new Nook GlowLight ($120) may have just what it takes to make a go at it. While it may never be able to boast the kind of ecosystem available with Amazon, its feature set and competitive price point make it an option worth considering. They've stuck with e-ink, and made the reading experience better than ever, with 60 percent more pixels, no glare, and a higher 1024 by 768 resolution. They've also put it on a diet, reducing overall weight by nearly a fifth, while the four gigs of storage will hold up to 2,000 books, and the battery will last up to eight weeks on a single charge.

  • iPad Air

    Today, amid rampant consumer and media speculation (as well as some half-hearted industry competition) Apple announced their most powerful, lightest, and thinnest full-sized tablet to date, the iPad Air ($500 and up). At just one pound and 7.5 millimeters thick, it's 28 percent lighter and 20 percent thinner than the previous full-sized iPad — and it's still packed with massive performance improvements. It features an A7 chip built on 64-bit architecture, giving it two times better computing and graphics performance, on top of a battery that lasts up to ten hours. Couple all that with a front-facing HD camera, dual antennas for better wireless performance, a retina display, and an M7 motion coprocessor, and you get a tablet that will have the competition scrambling just to keep up. Available next month.
