Do you own a Tablet?

Hi at all,
About one week ago I got the Amazon Kindle Fire HD Tablet and I really love it!

So what about you? Do you already have a Tablet? Do you want to buy a Tablet?

I travel a lot and contrary to what people think, there are still a lot of places without WiFi access. I thus needed a way to stay "in touch" using cellular 3G or 4G service, and a Samsung tablet met my needs for this. It works great. It is like a huge screen variant of my Samsung cell phone. The home screen and apps even look/work the same, so no learning curve was needed. I have owned a WiFi Ipad and Asus Transformer tablet (nice keyboard), but having a real wireless tablet was the way to go for me. Verizon service has not failed me anywhere in the USA and so far, not overseas as well, although you need to keep an eye on overseas data rates.

My Dad got a Samsung Galaxy S3 last year, and last month he dropped it into his recliner and closed the chair on it. Me, being as cheap as I am, scavenged it. It's a bit beaten up, but still works.

Just saw a BigLot's ad for a $90 Proscan tablet, with full keyboard and case. It's an 8 inch Duel Core with 1 Ghz processor and 512 of RAM. I looked it up on Google, and it has "mixed" reviews, but for some people it might be a good choice. Just sharing the info. It sure seems like a pretty inexpensive starter choice.

I sort of want one. I know I don't need one and I probably won't buy one since there are plenty of other things I'd rather spend my money on.

I have the Nook HD+ and really enjoy it, although I don't use it as much anymore. If I didn't own a laptop, Chromebook, Samsung Galaxy S5, and a basic Nook, I would probably use it a lot more! I find it's most useful for downloading and reading erotic fanfiction off of places like AO3, since it connects to the internet. I can browse through them and either read them online or download them to read in the Nook reader, where I can highlight and bookmark things. The basic Nook is better for reading, but I can't surf the web with it, so the tablet spares me from having to connect the Simple Touch to a computer to get the story on there.

I did own a kindle fire hd but it collected dust since I didn't use it so my mom bought it from me. I will only get another tablet if it's an iPad mini or iPad.

I have a tablet but it's a cheaper version. But hey it goes online and does all the basics and it's good enough for me. Nothing like going online without having to get out of bed!

Yes, but, I had to get one that only had Google services installed on it. Bloatware drives me nuts, and not is a good way . I also required an SD Card slot, this way I can either sideload or add other content to my device. I'm a wifi only kinda person.

My mothers fiance got me an iPad mini to use for school. I love it because I'm able to take notes with it instead of having to carry around a bunch of notebooks.

I got a tablet for Christmas (Galaxy Tab S), and I absolutely love it. For the longest time I used to think they were stupid, but now I couldn't go back to not have one.

I use to think that as well Svenson, but now, it's one of the better inventions since sliced bread.

What is the difference between a WIFI Ipad and a tablet?

WIFI is the way a tablet connects to the internet and other wireless devices that support WIFI.

A tablet is a smaller all in one touch screen computer. Keyboards can be attached to them if you don't want to use the touch screen.

The Ipad is a tablet computer made by Apple Computer and runs only Apple software. All tablets can connect to the internet and other wireless products either using WIFI, 3G or 4G. Other manufactures make tablets as well. Microsoft, Samsung, Asus, LG, Sony and many others have a tablet on the market and run either Android or Windows software. A few run both Android and Windows software. In the very near future, Windows tablets might be able to run both Apple and Android software.

WIFI and 3G and 4G are not the same thing though. They both allow you to connect to the internet, however with 3G and 4G connections, one can connect to the internet anywhere one can make a cell phone call. With WIFI, you can only interact with the internet and other wireless devices as long as you are connected to that WIFI signal.

An example of this could be this, let's say you are at Jeff's place and connected to Jeff's WIFI signal but you want to go to Starbucks and grab a Venti Mochafrappachino. Once you leave Jeff's place, you will no longer be connected to the the internet. You would have to reconnect to the internet once you hit Starbucks by using their WIFI information.

Is this make any sense?

Sure, I should have made it clearer. I know what WIFI is. just what is the difference if any in Ipad and tablet. Yes. I can get on the computer without leaving bed too and was watching Steven Tyler on tv while on the internet...answering your message on the ipad....lol. I use mine all the time for everything.

My bad , I misunderstood.

How bout this, an Ipad is a tablet but not all tablets are Ipads. Ipads run only Apple software. Other tablets don't come from the factory running Apple software because they aren't made by Apple. Apple doesn't license it's software to other manufacturers.

Windows and Android tablets are made by everyone but Apple. One major difference Apple has over all other tablets is it's design. Another is the software. There are essentially only 2 desings. One is a larger tablet and the other is a smaller or mini tablet. They look identical only one is visibly larger than the other. As far as the software goes, they all do basically the same things. You can check your email, go online and play games on tablets from both only depending on who you talk to, either Apple makes it look better or Android has more tweak-able options. For the record, Apple has a larger media library than both the Android and Windows marketplaces do. This includes all content from their music, video, newspapers, magazines and other electronic sources.

Other manufacturers make tablets in several different sizes usually ranging from 7-10 inches.
