A tablet is a mobile computer that is smaller than a laptop but larger than a Smartphone. While a tablet is not a replacement for an actual computer, it is perfect to take with you on the go. You can surf the internet, download books, games and music, watch movies and videos, share photos, create and give presentations, videos conference with clients, stay connected with email and much more!

What Exactly is a Tablet?

What Platforms are Tablets Available In?

Common Tablet Features

A tablet's platform is its operating system. Tablets use a variety of operating systems such as Windows (Microsoft), iOS (Apple), Android (Google),  and QNX (RIM/Blackberry).

Operating systems (OS) determine the structure of the tablet. This will characterize the experience you have while using your tablet. It is important to consider each operating system to guarantee that you are able to get the most out of your tablet as they each perform differently.

Here are a few key things to consider:

3G, 4G or Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi connectivity is a standard feature on most tablets. This allows you to maximize the performance of your tablet. It does, however, require you to be somewhere that has a Wi-Fi signal (ex. In your home, at work, etc.) to obtain internet connectivity.

3G and 4G connectivity are other available options that enable internet access anywhere there is a cellular telephone network. You will pay extra for this type of service through your wireless provider.
