Amazon has a list of Android tablets, and also a list of the overall best selling tablets on its site. I highly recommend that you check Amazon's user reviews before making a final decision on a purchase. I've often found important and useful tidbits posted by owners of the product I'm interesting in buying, and it can sometimes help you avoid getting stuck with a lemon.

As I noted last month, my choice would probably be the Google Nexus 7. I'm a big fan of the smaller form factor because it's easier to carry, and far more comfortable for me to hold for longer periods of time. Your mileage may vary, of course, and some folks really do need or want the larger screen tablets. But smaller is better for my needs and the Nexus 7 is a great option for people like me.

Android Wear 2.0 may be released on October 15

Android Police is reporting that Android Wear 2.0 may arrive on October 15.

According to Android Police:

According to an unnamed source, we're going to see OTA updates for some Wear devices on or around October 15th. We don't know what's in Wear 2.0 (but GPS and Bluetooth headphone support are good bets), which devices are getting it and exactly when, but it is happening.

We're keeping this one short and simple, and the information is, we feel, very credible. Unfortunately, we can't publish the direct evidence for this rumor for a number of reasons, but we're very confident in the reliability of our source here.
