If you’re among the people who have a limited budget and still want to buy quality tablets, then this post is just for you. We’re on the verge of seeing new and updated models of famous tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire lineup and Google Nexus 7. While everyone would be looking at the new tablets but won’t be buying because of high prices, you can buy an older version of the tablet with a good performance in a price range you can afford.

Although there are some new and inexpensive tablets in the market too, like the Acer Iconia A1-810 and the Hisense Sero 7 Pro, but the most popular ones from 2012 are still better and available in the same amount.

There has already occurred some price reduction in the tablets mentioned below in expectation of their upgrades and this is a good sign for those who were looking for tablets with good performance.

Amazon Kindle Fire (2012)

Amazon has been giving a tough time to other competitors in the tablet market with its Kindle Fire line. At an affordable price of $159, the 2012 Kindle Fire provides a very good experience to its users, despite the fact that it lacks some basic features like volume buttons, a camera and HD video support.

It is expected that the 2013 model of the Kindle Fire would arrive this fall with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution (and we’re all hoping it has volume buttons this time!).

Amazon Kindle Fire HD

Good news! Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD is now available at a new low price of $169! The restriction with its app store and interface is ignored when you look at its beautiful screen and the countless other things you are able to do, from videos to browsing and gaming!
The new version of Kindle Fire HD is also expected to be released this fall with an even better resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels).

Barnes & Noble Nook HD

Just because the Nook HD has the lowest price in the tablets discussed, doesn’t mean it also has the least to offer. Its starting price is only $129 for 8GB! It gives a 1440 x 900 pixel-resolution

screen, access to the Google Play store and a microSD expansion slot. It has a light and elegant design, although it lacks some features like a GPS, a camera, a Micro-USB port and a gyroscope.

If you like the Nook HD then you better get it now as you might not get this chance again. Why? Read ahead.

Barnes & Noble Nook HD+

Barnes & Noble have had enough of the tablet race and have decided to gracefully leave. Now where this is a bit sad for Nook HD lovers, it’s also a very good chance for them to get a simple tablet at cheap rates. The value of Nook HD+ increased with the price drop following the announcement. It has all the basic features a new tablet user would want, from a high 1920 x 1280 pixel resolution screen to very good performance.

Barnes & Noble currently has no plans of manufacturing any more Nook HD+ tablets and expects to sell their stock through the summer vacations.

Google Nexus 7

Best things kept for last! The Nexus 7 is the best tablet available around a price range of $200. It has pure Android functionality and an elegant design. As it is a Google-branded tablet, you don’t have to worry about its updates. You’ll receive Android updates and your OS will stay updated even when your hardware gets outdated by the emergence of the new model in the market. Cool right?

There are rumors that the next Nexus 7 would come by the end of this year. But are these only rumors or the actual truth, only time can tell.

Till then, enjoy your tablet!
