I don't know if it's "the best", but I like Samsung's Galaxy Tab:

WOW! thanks for the link.

I watched several of the videos.

So basically, if you have an iPhone and use iTunes - get an iPad. If you have an Android phone and you use the Android Market - get a Galaxy Tab.

I really liked that Galaxy Tab. I am going to see who sells them around here and try one out ;) Nothing like that 30 day return policy :bouncing:

Musky, do you have one of these? How well does iSilo work on it?

No, I don't have one, but I have played around with one and I really like the feel of it.

I have helped several friends install isilo and the WT Library through meekspace and they have all said it works great, as do the "Witness" apps, like "JW Reader and JW Player", etc.

Ooh ooh! I know, I know! animated_student.gif

I just got the Dell Inspirion Duo. Because I found out that not all tablets are actually PCs! :ohmy:

Ipads and most Androids run on apps only but don't actually compute on their own. Maybe Android 3 does. Not sure. :eek:

If you want a tablet that is also a PC make sure you get one that really is a tablet PC.>:D< It will say tablet pc on it. Otherwise it will just say tablet.

I like both j w reader, and jw player . did you notice that j w reader has been taken off the market?

Yes, but they seem to pull it just before they release an updated version, that happened the last time too.

Too many of us have the apk file for it ever to go away! LOL

What does 'troglodite' mean, btw?

:wave: Its like Bohemian, but not as cutesy :drink:

It is amazing how quickly the tech industry has advanced.

Big Floppy (5 1/4"), -> 2 1/2" -> CD -> DVD -> thumb drive -> cards (SD, SDHC, mini, micro - now 32 gigs) WOW! in just a few decades.

Does India's budget tablet computer work?

India's recently launched Aakash is the world's cheapest touch-screen tablet computer - with an off-the-shelf price of about $60. Should we all run out to buy one?

In this tablet-crazy age, you'd think a $60 hand-held Android tablet might trigger midnight queues and riots. Or at least get tech columnists really excited.

But India's super cheap tablet was launched to a less-than-rousing reception, thanks to a history of false starts and hype.

When first announced, the Aakash prototype turned out to be not much more than an oversized memory box. Its ancestor, the functional hand-held Simputer, had flopped over and died.

This tablet started its life as Sakshat, with a $35 subsidised price tag for students. In its shipping form, it's called Aakash, and it will cost 2,999 rupees ($62).

I wasn't expecting much when I took it out of the box, but I was pleasantly surprised...

Sian, can you post a review? I am interested.

This thread makes me buy one tablet but i still prefer the Windows OS because of portability.

Vietnamese.

I am still working on it. It is taking me a while.

I am having to redo a big chunk as we now have the NWT of the Greek scriptures.

I have kinda of dropped out of trying to doing the 2011 magazines :(

Let me know when you have the WT Library in Vietnamese finished, I get a lot of requests for it!
