Hi everyone, I'm planning to get my Mum a 7" tablet for christmas this year and until now was planning on the iPad mini. It looks like it might be a little more expensive than I had hoped (although obviously no one knows for sure). Anyway the potential high price got me thinking "Why haven't I even considered an android tablet?" So I was just wondering what the Android tablet experience is like? Here are the main things she'll be using it for (in descending order of importance): - Reading eBooks - Playing sudoku - Browsing the internet - Might be able to convince her to use it to listen to music/the radio! Anyway I'd just like a few opinions on what android is like for these tasks, specifically eBooks. Also, what is the whole android experience like? My only android device has been a low end phone running 2.2 so I have no experience of android now! A big issue is ease of use/intuitiveness. I feel like mum would pick up all she needed to know about iOS fairly easily, and fixes for most problems will just be a trip to the apple store away at worst! With android is there much technical stuff that needs to be done, how is the UI/usability? easy to pick up for let's say not a very technically minded person? What about getting content? I believe apple would be easy as she'd only need one account for apps/books/music. What would android be like for this? Finally, if you do recommend android, which would be better, nexus 7 or kindle fire HD? Thanks and sorry for the essay!
