Has your Nexus 7 fallen in love with the concrete? Are you looking to replace that old Galaxy Tab? Looking to get in on the wonderful world of Android tablets?

Making as big a decision as this can become confusing and if you want to make an educated decision on what tablet to buy, you’ll need to know what’s coming up in the next few months and decide whether they are worth waiting for. Otherwise you might just be caught out with the dreaded buyer’s remorse.

Here are a few Android tablets that’ll be coming out in the next few months that are sure to catch your eye, and perhaps your wallet as well.

  • The Nexus 7 2, the new Nexus 7, Nexus 7 HD, whatever you want to call it. The point is that a refresh of the Nexus 7 is coming, and if rumors are to be believed, we’ll be seeing the refreshed Nexus 7 before the end of July.
  • If Samsung’s yearly refresh strategy is to be believed, then a new Galaxy Note 10.1 should surely be upon us soon. Just when we might see that however, we just don’t know. The Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched in August 2012, for what it’s worth.
  • The new Asus Transformer Pad Infinity will be released in the UK on August 31.
  • The HP Slatebook x2 was given the tagline “100% tablet, 100% notebook, 100% Android”, and it was also given an August release date.
  • The Nexus 10 2 should be released later in the year and could be accompanied by Android 5.0 and the Nexus 5.
  • The Samsung Ativ Q is a hybrid dual OS booting monster of a laptop and tablet combination. Too bad the Android/Windows 8 running device hasn’t received a release date yet, although we’d bank on it being towards the end of the year.
  • The Asus Transformer Book Trio is a detachable dual OS hybrid and should be launched in Q3.

Looking for an affordable tablet?

The Nexus 7 was arguably the bargain of the year in 2012, and with a refresh looming you can expect another brilliant tablet. According to the latest rumors, the new Nexus 7 will again be made by Asus, and will feature a Full HD, 7-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Impressive specifications, but it would be even more impressive if it can hit the $200 price point of its predecessor. The Nexus 7 2 is expected to be unveiled before the end of the month of July.
