Tablet shopping for the discerning eye
These days, many people are considering buying a tablet. Some have some extra money and want to buy the most popular device out there. Others may be more discerning. For this latter group, there are several factors to consider before making a tablet purchase.
The first step is deciding what purpose the tablet will serve. Will it be used primarily when working on the road? If so, the user may want to make battery life a priority. If the shopper is a film buff or a gamer, screen size and storage space will likely come into play.
Then there's connectivity. Many tablets only come with WiFi capabilities, which may be OK if the device is going to be used primarily at home or in the office. For frequent travelers, cellular service may be essential. Some tablets are now available with 3G connectivity, and others even include 4G.
It seems that a new tablet hits the market every other week. Many are strikingly similar to one another, while others have distinct features that set them apart. Determining what you're looking for before shopping for a tablet can make the decision much easier.
