Picking The Right Tablet | BVA INC. emPowering Your IT –

Android, Apple, or Windows – which tablet is right for you? PC Mag tells you what to consider.

Operating System

Each system has benefits. Apple iPads are clean and intuitive with a wide app selection. The Android mobile OS offers hardware options, fast web browsing and support for multiple user logins. The Windows 8 tablet is compatible with Microsoft Office, and brings more connectivity options and hardware add-ons.

Apps

Apple’s iPad has the best collection. Android and Windows also offer thousands of apps, but not the quantity or quality of Apple.

Screen Size and Storage

You can opt for a small-screen (seven-inch) or large-screen (10-inch) tablet. Look for a sharp screen resolution; for instance, at least 1,280 by 800 in a 10-inch Android. Cloud storage is an option, but you want as much on-board storage as possible. iPad Air and iPad mini lines have the most with 128GB of flash-based memory.
