Are you thinking of getting someone (or yourself!) a new tablet for the holidays? Did you pick one up during the holiday sales this season? If you or your lucky gift recipient has never had a tablet before there are a few things to keep in mind when you first start using it. There are a lot of tablets out today and some are geared for specific uses, such as an e-reader like the Kindle Fire or NOOK Tablet that we reviewed last month. Others tablets such as the Apple iPad or Acer Iconia are more multi-use, covering everything from videos and movies to games and business apps and an e-reader.
Getting a new tablet opens up a world of portable entertainment and technology. You’ll be able to receive email, read periodicals, play games, browse the web, stream and watch videos. There are also tons of specialty uses that the latest tablets are capable of so it’s really up to you and what you want to do with your new gadget.
New apps are being created and released daily and they continue to expand the capabilities of your device. For instance, did you know that you can accept credit card payments to your bank account with an iPad or Android tablet using the Square app and Square card reader? Love Scrabble? There’s a similar app, Words With Friends, that allows you to play friends, family and even strangers worldwide. Manage your blog, your bank account, your recipes, your social networks and more!
