· Tablets that have a good battery life are important if you plan to use your tablet in meetings or during travels. You should also be able to charge your tablet quickly and easily from a wall adapter or USB adapter.
· Tablets used for work should support decent applications. Android tablets for instance give you access to the Google Play store, while iPads will allow you to look for free and paid office applications on the iTunes store.
· Durable, tough tablets are best if you plan to let your kids use your tablet, although the majority of tablets are child-friendly. With many educational games, both Android and iPad provide a range of applications for children.
· If you simply want a basic tablet that allows you to check email, do a bit of browsing and play the odd game, then you can choose something more affordable rather than going with the added features of more advanced tablets.
· Always make sure however that your tablet has a full warranty and that it has received positive reviews. Do a bit of research to see which have good feedback, and don’t be shy to ask friends what they would suggest.
