Tablets come with a variety of data storage sizes that are expressed in GB
(gigabytes). Currently, these range between 1GB and 64GB. This storage is the
amount of room available to you for data and software, so the model you choose
and how much of this capacity you will need depends upon how you use your
Your tablet will quickly become central to your everyday life and work. And like most people you’ll start collecting movies, photos, apps, games and other data. Over time, this material will start to eat into your storage capacity.

you to store and access all of your data safely and securely.

Tablets are larger than smartphones, with screens of between 7″ and 11″, yet smaller and more compact than most laptops, with some weighing under a pound. They are designed to be ultra-portable, super functional computers that are compact enough to slip into a small bag or purse. But it’s not only their web connectivity and slim design that make tablets so popular – it’s also their slick new interactive screen technology
With the flick of a finger, you can surf, email and use social networking sites. You can organize your life, share files, manage photographs, play games and watch movies – all on a usefully-sized screen with razor-sharp resolution. And you can do it all without the awkwardness of a heavier laptop with its flip-up screen, or the frustration of trying to read material on a smartphone screen the size of a business card.
With their larger screens, high-end specs and conventional keyboards, the latest laptops do what they do well – heavy-duty information creation, data processing and industry-level productivity. It’s likely you don’t need this kind of capability day-to-day, but still want fast online interactivity and high performance communication and organization tools. If so, an ultra–slim tablet is an excellent alternative, plus it’s a fraction of the weight.
Throw in an intuitive operating system, touch-sensitive screen and a use-anywhere format, and you’ll find that in most environments a tablet will give you a much more convenient experience than any laptop.
Tablets are also better for viewing and sharing information with others around you – the high definition glass screen is viewable from all angles plus, thanks to smart new technology, displayed content instantly orientates itself, regardless of which way you hold your device.
There will always be a place for compact, pocket-sized phones that make use of wireless, cellular networks. But, in the Internet age, our ability to talk wherever we are is only part of the story. We also want all our personal and business information to be easily accessible, easily consumed and easily shared. And it’s here that tablets really score over smart phones. Touch–sensitive tablet screens allow information to be viewed much more clearly than it is on a smartphone – anyone who has struggled to read faxes, spreadsheets, PDFs, web pages or reports on a 3″ phone screen will be familiar with its limitations.
Compare this with a typical tablet screen size of between 7″ and 11″ and you’ll see how much easier document-viewing becomes. Add in simple touch screen interactivity that allows pages to be moved, magnified, reduced and ordered with the flick of a finger and you’ll get a better idea of why these devices are really taking off.
It’s true that smartphones are great for receiving emails when traveling around, but tablets make it much easier to review and respond to individual messages – thanks to their larger screen size and virtual, touch-sensitive keyboard. In fact the whole tablet environment, including font size, can be adjusted to suit your preference.
Don’t forget that you can also make voice, video or conference calls using VoIP systems such as Skype and Google more easily than ever before. These networks also enable file sharing and instant messaging, too. So wherever you are – in a train, a plane or a car, or waiting in an airport, a bar or a shopping mall – with a headset and an Internet connection, you can be on message whenever you need to be.
Tablets are by far the easiest, most portable computer solution when it comes to consuming and sharing information on the go. All our tablets are Wi-Fi enabled right out of the box, so you can be up and running in no time.
One of the best ways to take advantage of your tablet’s portability is to use it with a Wi-Fi router. This will generally give you a solid, wireless online connection wherever you are in your home or office. If you already have a wireless router, then your signal should be detectable straight away and you’re all set to surf. If you don’t yet have a wireless router you can purchase one online or at your local wholesale or retail consumer electronics store or provider.If you want to adapt and personalize your tablet experience, there’s are a whole range of high quality accessories available online. From protective cases that double as viewing stands to full-sized keyboards and docking cradles that charge your tablet’s batteries while you work.

For many users, laptops have become their preferred computing device because it allows them to complete all the tasks they would need on a desktop but with the convenience of mobility and flexibility.Tablets, on the other hand, are currently the pinnacle of mobile technology. They are compact, very lightweight and extremely easy to carry. Tablets can be ideal for those who browse the Web casually, such as read the news or popular websites, and those who play “lightweight” games, or want to watch TV or films while traveling. Additionally, tablets can be used in a variety of specialized careers like design and music.
