How to set up your tablet

Just got a tablet? Here are a few tips for dressing up and getting the most out of your new purchase.

A few weeks ago at CNET Gotham, I gave a quick live presentation called Tech Boot Camp: Tablet setup.

It consisted of a look at some of my favorite bits of advice for new tablet owners.


My focus was mainly on the iPad, but much of what I discussed could apply to Android owners, too.

So, here's a video we shot at CNET that recaps what I said then. Topics covered:

  • Picking a case that makes sense
  • Understanding the cloud, and using it
  • Get your "free" content! (Or, how to find things you've already paid for and get them on your tablet.)

Good luck, and happy holiday tableting!
