Former ios junkie making the switch

My budget is anything under $400 but would LOVE to spend $300-$350

My criteria in order and I know a few things will not happen but a brother can wish can't he!

1. Read my ginormous .cbr comic books collection without issues
2. Expandable memory of at least 64 GB
3. 10" screen, give or take a few inches
4. Rootable
4. HDMI port

In the Android ecosystem, there are fairly few tablets that truly compete head-on with the iPad; most new tablets are mid-size tablets at the 7" to 8.9" range. The 10.1" tablets that do exist are often sub-par, as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, sporting a dual-core Intel Atom and a weak 1280x800 display. Others, like the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF701, and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, are bulky messes that attempt to jam in additional features to please everyone, but end up being cumbersome. The flagship full-size Android tablet, the Google Nexus 10, is nearly two years old, and has been the subject of a litany of sketchy product revision rumors since the introduction of the Nexus 7 2013.
