Now that you know what size you want, my answer to what OS tablet you should buy is simple. Buy whichever one you have spent the most money in their app store. Do you have an iPhone or old iPad and manage your music through iTunes? Get an iPad. Do you currently have an Android phone and have spent money on apps and media content in the google play store? Get a Nexus 7 or Nexus 10. Do you rock a Windows phone and use Windows on your computer? Get a Microsoft RT device. Do you have an Android phone but get most of your media from Amazon? Get a Kindle fire tablet.
The point I'm trying to make is that all manufacturers are making great devices in the both the 7" and 10" form factors. First you should pick what size suits you best then pick which app store you've already spent the most money. Or the other way around if you choose. Pick your app store then the size. Either way, these are the two questions you need to ask yourself when buying a tablet.
Quality 7" tablets will run you anywhere from $150 for a Kindle Fire to $329 for an iPad Mini. You can get anything from 16gb of storage up to 32gb in this price range. If you prefer the 10" form factor, you can expect to pay around $500 and up for anything from a Microsoft Surface to Nexus 10 or an 4th gen iPad. Amazon, Google and Apple all offer both 7" and 10" form factor tablets. Microsoft only offers 10" and bigger but its a quality 10" tablet that can compare neck and neck with the iPad.
BLUF: Pick your OS and size form factor or pick your form factor and then OS. You can't go wrong either way. You'll always get a tablet which you probably already know how to use and already love.

This Chinese company used leaked photos of the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 to bring to market an iPhone clone and had the nerve to patent the design. So now if Apple brings the iPhone 5 to the Chinese market, they will have to pay licensing fees to this company or be sued for their own design. Genius! Samsung, you can learn a thing or two here.

Recently, I purchased a Lenovo Ideapad A1 because I could get a 7" tablet which I love for only $200 and it has cameras on the front and back. It's not a top of the line tablet but for $200 what can you really ask for? I just got it today and I will do a review this weekend when I doing nothing as usual. I also purchased a Wibro (Wimax for you US folks) 4G wifi hotspot to use with my tablets. I will also do a quick review detailing data speeds more than anything. I am happy to be back blogging and talking about tech. Honestly, its what makes me most happy besides my kick ass son who just turned 5. I love that lil dude.
Anyway, stay tuned and you might actually get a review of a $200 this weekend. LOL, thanks for bearing with me for those of you who have.
