View Full Version : Who's Using Tablets?
11-12-2012, 12:02 AM
So due to the big shift in consumer products and what people use as far as productivity/entertainment goes, who actually made the plunge to buy one of the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 RT based tablets, the new Android Jelly Bean compatible tablets, or the new Apple iPad Mini?
Or do you have any other tablets that you really like? I'd like to hear more about this because I'm looking into getting a tablet in the near future, and I'd like to know why you guys like certain brands, or certain tablets. What do you guys look for in a tablet, or why haven't you gotten one yet?
I was looking at the Google Nexus 7, and also the Nexus 10. I've looked at some Microsoft Surface tablets too, but they seem to be way too overpriced. I really want a Nexus 10, but then again as of now, they do not offer ones that have 4G LTE support. Nexus 7 would be my next option, but the Nexus 10 seems to offer so much more as far as performance, capacity and features.

No don't have one, can't afford one.
Having one would be handy for work though..

Ipad3- low learning curve, solid design, great warranty and support, usable for work, home, ereader.
Ipad mini is just too small.

I use the Motorola Xoom. Great tablet, always works, and good battery life.

Sumerians and a few others for cuneiform.
Sorry, could not resist the “Who’s using tablets”.

My wife and 2 year old both use the iPad3.
At work we have been looking into getting tablets to use at customers houses

so iPads seem to be a popular choice for people at this forums. Hmm. Interesting. I like iPads, but kind of hate some limitations. I also like Android, but don't like some limitations, and I also like the new Windows RT, more specifically the actual real Windows 8 based tablets, but the lack of apps on that sucks. So each of them have their pros and cons.
The Nexus 10 just got released today, but I really want a 32GB model with 4GB LTE, even though I don't have a smart phone or data plan right now. I would be willing to get one just for the tablet in case I go traveling or going to events. :(

The only tablet that I have is a ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101, but I did have the opportunity of using a BlackBerry Playbook and an Apple Ipad 3. In all honesty, I have tablets a mere gadget for wow-factor, multimedia and the occasional Internet browsing. If you're looking for productivity, a tablet is a terrible idea because of the poor software (compared to Microsoft Office). The Windows Surface seems to be far superior to others since it has Office built into it. Personally though, if I could go back, I would have bought a laptop instead of tablet.

Im still using iPad2 till now, it works great, no need to spend more money to buy iPad3. Mostly they have same specs, just tiny fix on next model. If you need more exploration, Nexus7 will be great.
