Best Android tablets you can buy in Q1 2023


When we think of tablets, iPad is the first name that pops up for good reasons but that does not mean iPad is your only option. There are plenty of good Android tablets to choose from. It makes even more sense for you to invest in an Android tablet if you have all things tied to a Google account and you are already a part of the Android ecosystem.
