Slates, Tablet and Portable Touch Devices

 

Whether you really need one or not, everyone wants a tablet. Blame Angry Birds, the touch screen game that we all fell in love with on our phone. The rumors are true; it is even more addictive on a tablet. Tablets also allow you to manage your email, read and create documents and have great battery life for things like watching movies on the road (hopefully not while driving).

Nicole, our resident tablet guru still really likes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and calls it, "The best 10 inch competitor to the iPad." The Galaxy Tab is available in several configurations, 16GB and 32GB, with and without 3G capabilities onboard.

Nicole's bang for the buck choice is the Acer Iconia A500. The A500 is another 10-inch class tablet, but sells for around 350 Dollars online with 16GB of memory. A larger 32GB model is also available.
