There’s a great selection of low priced 7-inch Android tablets on the market right now, so I put together a little table comparing what I consider to be the four best 7-inch tablets under $250. Below you’ll find a specification comparison of the Acer Iconia A100, the Amazon Kindle Fire, the Barnes & Noble Nook Color and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. Click on the price in the table below if you find the right one for you.
