Kindle Fire HDX 8.9"
OH NO!! I know what you are thinking, "He didn't pick the iPad Air 2 as the best tablet?! It's Apple's newest and most awesome tablet!" Correct. It is APPLE's newest and best tablet. But it is more of the same from Apple. While the iPad Air 2 is certainly Apple's best tablet ever, Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" is still the King of tablets in Value. With a powerful Quad Core processor, and one of the highest resolution screens of any tablet, it is one of the best values available. The Kindle Fire HDX is undoubtedly the lightest tablet you can buy at just 375 grams. By comparison, the Nexus 9 weighs 425 grams, the iPad Air 2 weighs 469 grams, and Sony’s Xperia Z2 tablet weighs 439 grams. And the HDX comes with Amazon's simply amazing Mayday feature. Mayday is a 24/7, 365 day a year live Tech Advisor that comes on screen to guide you through any feature on your Kindle Fire by drawing on your screen, walking you through how to do something for yourself, or doing it for you—whatever works best. That's the kind of service most people would pay good money for, and it comes free. Considering the 16GB HDX is 27% ($120) cheaper than the iPad Air 2, you can't beat the price to performance ratio in the HDX.
