The war is on for the most sought-after tablet on the market, and the differentiation between the front-runners appears now, more than ever, to be strikingly high. What we've got from Apple is the iPad Air
, a new far-smaller iteration of the same Retina display as the 4th generation unit. From Google there's the Nexus 7 (2013)
, a low-priced high-powered Android tablet manufactured by ASUS. Microsoft's competitor in the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2
works with Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT, making this battle a three-way fight between operating systems right off the bat.
