Help on 8 inch tablets
      #45741 - 12/06/13 03:15 AM

Sorry for another "WSIB" message but, I am an operations professional that does a lot of traveling. I am looking to buy a tablet that is easy to travel with and more for general use and entertainment on the road (movies, email, work notes, music, photos, internet, maps, etc). Not interested in gaming. I am thinking along the lines of an 8 inch (or there about) tablet and somewhat budget minded. Don't mind paying for good quality and one that will be usable for several years but, not interested in $600 tablets. My requirements, good processor, 2GB memory/16-64GB storage (prefer 32gb to start with but, can settle for 16gb if needed), expandable SD/SDHC slot to 64gb, excellent screen/pixel count, not interested in being locked into one platform and ability to work multiple screens, if needed.

I am looking at the following tablets but, feeling a bit over whelmed. Thus, would appreciate some expert guidance/recommendations on which would fit my needs (1st thru 3rd choice would be most appreciated):
Dell Venue 8 Pro
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9
Samsung Note 8
LG G Pad 8.3
Nook HD+

If there are recommendations for a 10" tablet I would appreciate any guidance if a 10" would be a better value and/or option. Thank you for your time.

Really, any of your top 3 choices would be great. If you use a lot of Amazon services and content, then the Kindle would be ideal. If you have a desire for a digital pen, then the Note 8.0 is the better choice. If you'd like to run Windows Programs and have full Windows compatibility, then the Dell is the right choice. I'm not sold on the Nook vs. the Kindle, honestly, given Amazon's much stronger content ecosystem.

I honestly haven't spent enough time with the LG G Pad 8.3 to offer a definitive opinion.
