Things to look for when buying a tablet
Last year, the talk of the town in the tablet world was Appleâ€™s iPad. Released in the middle of the year, it became one of the hotter Christmas gifts of 2010, as it had nearly 6 months to build up hype heading into the holidays. The rest of the tablet market were, save for one or two notable exceptions, a group of also-rans. While there was some promise shown at the end of the year, when more hardware manufacturers started to develop a tablet with the goal of knocking Apple off their tablet throne, most were still playing catch-up.
This year, after plenty of time for other manufacturers to do their homework, the tablet landscape presents more than just one or two options, making the choice of what to pick up a bit more difficult than it was this time last year.
Weâ€™re here to help you learn what you need to know if youâ€™re looking into purchasing a tablet this holiday season. This general guide will cover some specs and settings to keep in mind so you can make sure to find the right tablet to fit your budget and needs.
