It’s still three weeks until Black Friday 2012, but already the tablet wars are heating up. SolidlyStated is taking a break from the “tablet brands you never heard of” series to look at what the big brands have put at the $200 tablet price point. So what is the best $200 tablet for the 2012 holiday? After reviewing plenty of $70 or $80 tablets, these are a breath of fresh air. View the Triple Threat.

Continuing the series of “tablet brands you never heard of” for the 2012 winter season. Here is a comparison of Android 4.0 tablets by Coby.

While I don’t endorse any particular model of cheap tablets, you can count on these to run the same hardware as the rest (most are all assembled in the same plant). It will come down to what features you want or maybe what’s included (such as headphones or a leather case) View the Coby comparison

Having just compared the Visual Land Android 4.0 Prestige models 7 and 7L, it is only fitting to also compare the “Connect” model as well. I was unable to find proper comparisons of these 3 tablets on the internet, so I decided to create them myself! Connect vs Prestige

Like it or not, 2012 will be the “Year of the Tablet,” as far as the holiday season goes. Like digital picture frames a few years ago, cheap tablets from brands you never heard of will find their way into the hands of millions of gift givers this December. Get the real comparisons here
