My son has decided he wants a new tablet for Christmas.  He's been rocking a Kindle Fire for a couple of years but has decided he wants a new tablet.  I know the one I would look at, but wanted to get other opinions here.

 

For me, I'll probably look at the new Nexus 7 or 10.  He uses my 2012 N7 all the time so he's already used to the size and the OS.  I really think he may not like the 10", but I also may be wrong.  Yes, I'm wrong sometimes.  :-)

 

Thoughts/ideas/recommendations?

If you're buying a tablet for a child, and they can be responsible enough with something nice (which it sounds like is the case with rocking a Fire previously), I would either go with a Fire HDX if Amazon content is the primary use, or the N7 2013 otherwise.

 

If you plan on spending a good chunk of change and he / you want to explore the 10" form factor, go for the Note 10.1 2014 edition.

Yeah, leaning toward the N7. Thanks for the input.
