Tablet or not?
hmmmm, I’ve got the kindle Fire HD…mainly gets used as a book, but I do use it for browsing too…actually after being used as a book I think it’s pretty good for skype…just the right size for the kids to hold it whilst they do video chats with relatives…..but I do find it a bit restrictive…can only do what Amazon wants you to do and it’s a little buggy with certain web sites…..I like the fact if I want a book, I buy it there and then and can start to read, I like the skype….whether I’d buy one again…perhaps I’d spend a bit more and go for I-pad mini.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Nexus 7 for £200 – seems to be about for less (can’t see the UK prices from Oz)
However I’ve not gone with the tablet thing yet, Galaxy S3 as a phone works well for browsing for me and after that I value having a bigger screen and not loosing it to a keyboard for typing really. That and I have the laptop for heaps more stuff than a tablet would work well for.Posted 4 years agocu dubhSubscriber
Well, it looks like there seems to be a trend towards getting a tablet. That makes me feel better. The playbook is part of the reason for being interested in getting one but while it does work well with the blackberry in other ways it seems limited. I am not a huge fan of Apple so even at a lower price an ipad wouldn’t be greatly appealing. A Nexus 7 does look quite fun.Posted 4 years agocu dubhSubscriber
OK, I am typing this on the laptop, my wife has a blackberry playbook and we both have blackberry smartphones and I have a Kindle. I have a hankering after a tablet but suspect this is just a guy’s gadget thing. The smartphone is not brilliant for browsing but great for email. The playbook belongs to the Mrs so I don’t get to play with it much. The Kindle is brilliant for books but is really limited to that. A tablet would be just for browsing, mostly stuff like singletrack. The laptop is handy for work type stuff but a little bulky. I can afford £150 ish for a tablet. Should I bother or just spend it on bike related stuff that I don’t need?Posted 4 years ago
