    I'm buying a tablet soon with my Best Buy gift card. My limit is around $200 (+ tax).

    I've narrowed down my choices to:

    - Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (8 GB) [Best Buy only sells the 8 GB version]
    - Kindle Fire HD (16 GB)
    - Nook HD (16 GB)

    If I buy the Galaxy Tab, is 8 GB enough to hold a bunch of apps? I will be storing my music on a microSD card.

    What are the benefits of the Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD? Do they have a varied app selection? I know the Amazon Appstore has most of the same apps as Google Play (aside from the Google apps, of course).

    Probably for $200, Google Nexus 7 maybe a good option, only thing is it doesn't have an SD-card, but it's available with up to 32GB storage. That way you've got a known good device, and you have Android the way that Google intended.
