what are some of the best deals on tablets, and what is better O.s. android, windows, ice cream sandwich or Mac. Any ideas? This would be for general home use As I am perm. disabled and spend a lot of time in bed. Movie watching, games etc Being on disability cannot afford much. And being out work for 11 years now T.V.is getting pretty boring same shows,different channels. Thanks for any help at all ---Jeff
Microsoft Surface is my choice because of the port extensions and extra mem . Seems a bit Pricey so far. http://surface.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/Content/pbPage.Surface_Category?ESICaching=off?WT.mc_id=cpc_US-en_bing_mshh
Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) is Android 4.0. I had a Vizio Vtab1008 for the last year with which I was quite pleased. Unfortunately, it took a fatal swan dive out of my briefcase onto a concrete driveway. :( I've replaced it with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1-Inch, Wi-Fi). So far, so good.
I recently bought an Android tablet on Amazon and greatly enjoy it.
Amazon supports Android with it excellent selection of Android Apps, including their Free App of the Day. For FREE, I have gotten dozens of games, as well as utilities and 3 different Microsoft Office compatible editors.
I run the Kindle Reader app and prefer to buy all my books and magazines (when available) in Kindle format. I can search and buy them right from my tablet.
My home page is Amazon.com so Android tablet is a natural. I do not own any Apple computer and the iPad is too expensive. Windows tablets are nice but very few apps to choose from.
I highly recommend getting an accidental damage warranty from Square Trade. I have them on my 3D TV, Kindle, Camera and Android tablet. They are quite inexpensive compared to store warranties like Staples or Best Buy, which often only cover manufacture defects, not accidental damage like dropping or spilling things on them. I noticed that Costco now sells SquareTrade extended warranties as an add on for their TVs. I have never needed to use one but I am happy to have the added piece of mind. They even cover cracked/non-working screens and contacts. You can add it to your order on Amazon and SquareTrade handles the warranty set up.
