Tablets
I think I'll get one sometime in the near future, but I have absolutely no idea about which is best. Any advice on what to get? Taking into account price, power and availability of apps.

Tablets are not really worth it.

Doesn't it depend on the situation though?

RE: Tablets
I have a Kindle Fire.
It stores a lot of data in my opinion. It does most of everything the IPad can do but costs less.

Most apps that you would want are cheap and they have little sales every day. The movies are quite pricey but if you get an Amazon Prime subscription, you will be able to rent for free and such (this goes for popular books too). The quality is great, youtube looks crystal clear even. Power lasts a long time and charges at a fast pace.

For me, the only problem I have is the internet connection, but that just might be my personal service. Apps that make their way on Apple products eventually make their way to the amazon store as well.

So yeah..I'm pro kindle fire.

It only depends if you want quick access or not

RE: Tablets
I find tablets to be kinda pointless as a smart phone does basically everything a tablet does and i'ts cheaper and more practical for portability the only reason I could see owning a tablet is if you read a lot of books then you could just get a Kindle.

RE: Tablets
Um, hey guys? I'm not after the pros and cons of tablets in general. I was after some opinions of which tablets are best...

Cheers Pika, but I don't think the Fire is available in the UK.
