also to add to what JSWolf and jtdolphin has said Read multiple reviews from the mainstream such as Cnet, Engadget etc to some lesser known ones as well. My personal favorite reviewer of tech gadgets is actually a member here, Lisa from Mobiletechreview.com. The most unbiased reviews you'll find.
and after all that reading etc. head down to your local stores and play with them see how they feel, how you like how they handle etc. How do you like the user interface. And give them quality time.
and then go from there.
