Apple iPad Mini [16 GB with Wi-Fi Variant]
This list would have been incomplete without Apple so I’ll just begin with it. Since Apple have stepped their foot in the mid-budget tablet section with Apple iPad Mini, their tablet rule in the world has strengthened.
Coming with an 7.9 inch LED-Backlit LCD capacitive screen and features like Bluetooth v4.0 and microUSB v2.0, iPad Mini is a cool looking tab. It has an 5 MP rear camera with HD video recording. It also has a 1.2 MP front facing camera. It has an Apple A5 chipset with 1 GHz dual-core processor. It comes with iOS 6 which will be most expectedly upgradable to iOS 7 soon.
So, for the Apple fanboys, iPad Mini is going to pretty much the only choice. But for the other guys out there, iPad Mini is a pretty good option unless you are too much addicted to Android.

Asus-Google Nexus 7 [32 GB with Wi-Fi]
The first device to come with the first version of Jelly Bean (Android v4.1) definitely got everybody attracted towards it. The device is Google’s favorite for now and it will be getting the latest updates until Google moves on to a new device. But that isn’t the only reason. The powerful under-the-hood features and the original Android experience are more reasons for the success of this tab.
It comes with a compact 7-inch LCD screen with features like Bluetooth v3.0, NFC and microUSB v2.0, Wi-Fi. Its 1.2 megapixels rear camera with 720p recording and the absence of a front facing camera may not sound good but wait before you get to the good part. A 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Cortex-A9 processor with Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset and ULP GeForce GPU, this tab steals the show.
Apple iPad Mini was for Apple fanboys and this one is for the Android fanboys. Even though it lacks some camera features, the tab steals the show with its under-the-hood specs. Price: Rs. 18,999 [Link]
