Tablets forum



by chucker111 / November 15, 2012 3:10 AM PST

I would like to purchase a tablet.I've read many reviews,screen quality,more apps,better this,and that.Couple of questions,if I may.I would like something I can use with wi-fi from the next room,so I don't have to go into the "computer room",to read something,or look something up,etc...I rarely read much in reviews about the quality of web browsing.I know it's not like using a pc,but how useful is the web browser on a tablet.Read emails from your email provider,or go to a site,and pay a bill,OR just look around,w/o being able to log into any site.Just curious.Thanks for reading.

I have a few (too many) tablets.

The office is developing apps so my favorites are the iPad, Samsung Android Tablets and the Kindle Fire HD.

For our apps the iPad and KF HD don't work but they do web pages very well. The downsides of all tablets is FLASH CONTENT. You're never sure if pages that use FLASH will work on the usual tablets.

Now if we find a Windows 7 tablet that works just like our PC but then there's the cost.

I'm hoping it will fare better than the KF HD.
