Top 5 Reasons To Buy A Tablet

ThatNaija Blog - Mobile users will overtake traditional PC users in 2015. This is a prediction by NPD but we are only in 2013 and the transition is happening faster than anticipated. (Gadgets, Tablets)

I recently purchased a Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite and I agree completely. I know it's not anywhere near the top tier of tablets, but it has it's strengths against both my SGS2 and my laptop and I plan to get a better one in a year or two.

I was glad to notice how the author gave credit to both console gaming (including Vita) and tablets, instead of going full retard with the "tablets are the future of gaming"-mantra.

I don't think the tablets can replace the traditional handheld games. I mean, they are made specifically for gaming and have physical buttons.

Maybe that would be another debate. To game or Not to game with physical buttons :D

I don't think tablet/smartphone gaming can or will replace gaming on a dedicated device, but there ARE compelling experiences on tablets, and in many circumstances one would be far more likely to have their tablet on them than their PSP/Vita/3DS. I think there's more than enough room in the market for all.

Nexus 10. Stock Android and you can download a player for any file types you need on Android. As far as i know you can't play those files on an iPad.

IDK, I'm really inconsistent when it comes to posting on techspy. I'm hard pressed to go a day without posting on N4G, though.

If you go to class, like I do, then tablets are basically only good for taking notes and surfing the web, checking e-mail.
But, for me, I've always gone with the laptop and I've never experienced any sort of class issues or personal ones.

I bought a Kindle Fire not too long ago, it's great for walking around the house when doing chores but as far as gaming goes. No buttons, no real games.
