If you were skeptical about the existence of the “tablet wars” before, there is no denying they are in full swing now. It’s widely agreed that Apple’s iPad trumps its competition but don’t count out Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7. The Nexus 7 just became available and it’s rumored that a redesigned Kindle Fire will be available soon. They may just be making headway due to their smaller size and cheaper price. And let’s not forget about Microsoft, who announced its Surface tablet a few weeks ago. The device will run the yet to be released Windows 8 operating system and if you live in a Windows world, it may be the tablet for you. Though the iPad is still king, Apple is acting like it feels the heat – rumors are swirling that it has a tablet with a 7.85-inch screen in the works that is as thin as an iPod and will be sold for significantly less than $500
