    I need a tablet for reading in bed. My gf has a Nook but she won't share it. I'm interested in something that won't burn a hole in my pocket but has all the nice specs too. Anyone here has recommendations?

    Samsung Galaxy Note Tablet about $600
    Kindle Fire HD and HDX $150-250
    irulu $50-100

    Honestly, I'd love anything with Super AMOLED display technology. But those are pricier. I'm just worried that I'll buy something that's cheap but turns out to be garbage.

    Preferably, a tablet that runs on android as I am not familiar with Apple's products or their apps.

    But first, I have to make that trip to the video store I promised Hunnie Bear lol.

    I highly recommend mini iPad. There is not much to learn. Pretty simple.

    I know right, the price for a new tab pro is ridiculous, but seriously, I want nothing less than super amoled :D and willing to pay premium for it.

    You never made that trip to the video store Happy. :D

    Congratulation on your new tab. (y)
    I love the Ipad Air for graphic and their exclusive contents.
    I saw the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 the other day and it's as great.
    I will get that one later too, but I'm gonna get my laptop first. I'm probably gonna go with the Asus brand.

    Everyone just want to run by that best buy is doing a trade-in-value for your regular iPad 2 for $200.00 until 11-08. You can trade it in for iPad air 2 or any of mini iPad.

    For those of you who do extensive reading on your tablet, do your eyes hurt from staring at the screen? I'm contemplating getting a tablet too.
