EPD 131: Fan Mail Friday’s (02/01/2013)

Dear Remy, Matt and Danny,

I had a quick question. I have been looking around for a good tablet. But, I have no idea what make to get and what size to get. “Do you guys have any ideas for me. Before I make a plunge ?”

Remy’s Reply: Well, for me that is easy I have a Nexus 7 32 gig Android Tablet. Now I have found out that a 7″ inches tablet is a little on the small side for me. But I also don’t like the mega 10.1″ inches. As it is way to big to be portable and is quite awkward when it comes to holding it your hand.

But thus far I have mixed feelings about it. I love the form factor for movies and general apps. But for gaming and reading (mainly comic books for me.) It is way to0 small. No matter how you position it. So I’m left with a 7″ inch Nexus 7 gaming tablet with about 50% of the features. That I find less then desirable due to its size and form factor. I could of easily upgraded to a slightly larger model. If there had been an 8″ inch perhaps even an 8.5″ inch models were available. I may have if I had foresight waited to buy a slightly larger tablet with the same tech specs as the Nexus 7.


Matt’s Reply: For me, choosing a tablet can be both a simple and complicated choice. First off you need to know how much money you’re going ot spend, and then you need to do your research online using as many different sources as possible. Next you need to decide what you’re going to use the said Tablet for! This will also help you in your research of the available Tablets that are on the market.

Now on to the available models on the market. There are multiple choices like the iPad from Apple, the Nexus from Google, and the Galaxy from Samsung, which make among the best Tablets on the market right now. Other factors you need to look for when browsing for a Tablet is to make sure that it includes a large enough screen (bigger than 7″ inches but no bigger than 10″ inches), so that it’s big enough for you to do what you need it to do, but small enough for it to still be a portable device, and it also need other key features like Wi-Fi, 3G, a HDMI Port and USB Ports.

I can’t actually recommend a single individual Tablet from either Apple, Google, Samsung or any of the other manufacturers because all of the specs for each Tablet from any of them are very similar to the others, so in the end it all comes down to which manufacturer you feel most comfortable with and the reasons you want a Tablet. Hope this all helps you.


Danny’s Reply: All I really need to say is do your research online. Also determine what you want your tablet for. As this will be one of the most important factors to making your final choice.  Price, Size, Wi-fi or 3G HDMI port or no port and of course mini or maxi USB port and or port(s).
