Apple iPad Mini
You've undoubtedly seen the cute, "Heart and Soul"-themed commercials for this diminutive addition to the Apple family. But only when you grip the tablet's sculpted form in one hand and stare at its crisp 1024 x 728 resolution do you realize that the folks in Cupertino, CA have shoehorned nearly everything about it (ease of use! front and rear cameras! apps!) into a smaller form. Try one, and most other devices seem out of date. Starts at $329.
