Default Best 7in tablet out right now?

Is there a top contender that stands out above the rest?

I'm guessing the Kindle Fire HD is the current king?

More or less, yes. With tax and shipping, the asus nexus approaches the kindle fire price.

I'd strongly encourage you to take a look at the Nexus 7 from Google/Asus.

Do you still get $25 in google play money? I love they included it with the Nexus. I would never have purchased anything if it wasn't for that because I am a cheap son of a bitch.

The lack of a rear camera is a big letdown, but I am planning on modding a rear camera.

Actually I think that promotional credit is set to expire... very soon.

Those who have been keeping a close eye on Google's 7-inch, Jelly Bean-loaded Nexus 7 would know that the company kindly includes 25 bucks worth of Play credit with any purchase of said tablet. Unfortunately, as the famed cliché would tell us, all good things must come to an end -- and, well, such is the case with this neat promotion, which will expire on Sunday, September 30th. Here's the good news, however: there's still a relatively good amount of time for folks interested to get it on the Google Play deal, so now would be the perfect moment to snag what some are calling the best $200 tablet -- and who knows, this might even lead to a post-order Gangnam Style celebration of your own.

If you activate it before it expires,

4. Redeemed balances that remain unused in your Google Play account will expire on September 30, 2013.


Bank run averted.

Worried me for a second Shrike. Do you own a Nexus 7? I love the little thing.

BB Playbook. Compare it's hardware features vs. the others.
May be lacking in app choices but still thousands to choose from.

I own a BB phone and like it but decided against a Playbook cause of its dead in the water future and expensive apps.

No but I wish I did, they're pretty amazing. Few people at work have them and it makes me jelly.
