Which Tablet Should I Get?
So my fiancée's birthday is coming up on the 22nd and I've been thinking about getting her a tablet. This came up when talking about reading some books. She's Chinese and still has problems reading in English with a somewhat limited vocabulary. I showed her the dictionary in Kindle and it got her interested. I bought her an iPhone 5 earlier this year and she likes Apple products. There are some good translation programs available and "her girls" (She's a gymnastic coach) are all Apple nuts. She isn't too technical. Personally, I'm not wild about Apple and think that they are overpriced. I'm also trying to stay within a reasonable budget for what will be mostly a book reader with some games and email. She will do almost everything else on her phone. She seems to like my old Motorola Xoom which still runs great.
Right now I'm looking at a Nexus 7 if I go cheap. I think it's the best bang for the buck out there for a small tablet. If I go upscale I was looking at a Nexus 10 or iPad mini. I'm definitely staying under $500 and would really rather be under $400.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
