Tips When Choosing A Tablet

Getting a new tablet is always a fun experience. Sometimes the smart phones just don’t cut it, especially due to screen size. When you are in the market for a new tablet, it’s important to pick the one that is right for you. To help you in the process, here are some basic tips to choosing the one appropriate to your needs.






Operating System:

There are, more or less, three basic operating systems for tablets: Apple (with iOS), Google (with Android), and Microsoft (with Windows). Generally, the rule of thumb is to pick the one that you’re already using for your smartphone. If you do, they can run together seamlessly.

Sticking to a budget:

Generally, tablet prices can range anywhere from $200-800. Lower end devices will come with such drawbacks as less storage capacity and less display quality.

Finding out app selection:

A tablet is only as good as the apps that it runs. Check out the apps available for each tablet on your web browser. While not all apps are tablet-friendly, the recent trend is moving that way.

Check out the tablets:

  • Try tablets in the store first, even if you’re ordering on line.
  • Check out the specs of each tablet.
  • Choose the size appropriate for you. They’ll usually come in 10 or 7 inch options. If you want the bigger screen, go for the 10. If you want more portability, go for the 7.
