Now’s The Perfect Time To Purchase A Tablet

I often travel with my laptop, and it sucks.. It’s heavy, it takes up valuable space in my carry-on, and I have to take it out when going through security in the airport. Who needs it?!

When tablets first came out, I just didn’t understand the appeal. I thought iPads were going to fail miserably (too expensive and too limited in their functionality), and boy was I wrong!

But finally, I’ve come over to the “dark side”, and I’m now using a Verizon Motorola XOOM with 4G LTE. And honestly, I wonder how I ever lived without one!

For the average person, a tablet could probably replace their computer. Think about it – Most people use their computers for email, Facebook, watching videos on YouTube, surfing the web, etc. Tablets do all of that, and they’re completely portable.

Instead of going upstairs to check my e-mail or look something up on the web, I just grab my XOOM and do it. (Sure, I could use my smartphone to do the same thing, but it’s a lot easier to work with a large tablet vs a small phone)

Check out the XOOM’s specs:

  • 10.1-inch widescreen HD display
  • 32 GB built-in storage (actual formatted capacity is less), with microSD card slot supporting additional 32 GB
  • Android™ 3.2 Honeycomb – supports Google™ Mobile Services including Gmail™, YouTube™, Google Talk™, Google Search™, Google Maps™, Google Movies™, Google Books™ and Android Market™
  • Dual-core 1 GHz processor
  • Adobe® Flash® 10- enabling the delivery of rich Flash based web content including videos, casual games and applications
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats over 4G LTE, 3G and WiFi
  • 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash

It’s something to think about.. Vikings Gab looks great on the tablet, and now you can read it from the comfort of your bed. 🙂
