To Buy A Tablet, Or Not To Buy A Tablet

Carol here,

Just thought I would write and include some tablet reviews since tablets are really the rage on the market right now.

I am personally planning to wait for another Blackberry tablet as you may have guessed from last week in my Blackberry post.

I recommend tablets because they are very portable, and good for communicating.  They are not really able to replace a desktop or a laptop though.

Things worth thinking about before buying a tablet?

Are you using it indoors or outdoors?  Some are not functional in the sunlight because the screen is unreadable with the glare of the sun.

Do you need a long battery life?  How long are you intending to use it for because electrical outlets are not very accessible these days.

Are you reading with it?  The screen resolution needs to be better and a long battery life is needed, you might be better off with an e-reader and people like the Kindle Fire.  Kindle's can actually email using wifi also.

Are you wanting to write with a keyboard?  If you need a standard keyboard for optimizing your writing, some of them have special keyboards you can buy, or you can attach a standard keyboard using the usb port, but some are unable to attach a keyboard at all.

Do you need alot of security for confidential information?  Probably best not to do banking or keep important information on it because tablets have less security than an average desktop or laptop.

Are you bringing the tablet along when travelling?  Choose something light with a long battery life and sturdy for moving around and going through customs.

Blackberry says they are releasing a new tablet, but they may be sold before that happens.

If you want a less expensive tablet, this video might tell you something.

If you are thinking of buying a top of the line tablet...I would suggest watching this video:

Bye for now....Carol
