    Do you own/use a tablet?

    Do you own/use a tablet. No matter if it is an iPad, android, windows tablet, or another brand/type.

    I have an iPad, and I usually use it to check this forum and browse other web sites Ever since I got my iPad, I can't be bothered to start my computer for easy stuff. Now my computer is for processing photos and make some documents/presentations for work.

    I have an iPad, I didn't think I would use it much and was worried it would be a waste of money but I have had it for around 6 weeks now and I love it. I do just about everything on my iPad and hardly boot up my laptop anymore..

    I use a 7" tablet but as a book reader rather than anything else. It has all sorts of books on it, plus all my photography and camera manuals and photographic articles.

    I use it when I'm waiting at the doctor's or any other sort of waiting, and also so that I can read on planes, trains etc. It's not on a plan so I can't use the 'net except wirelessly at home. It's just better than a kindle as I can read anything - PDFs, Docs - whatever, and as it's Android rather than Apple I'm not locked into their restrictive ecosystem!

    I don't own a tablet yet, but I'm waiting for an opportunity to justify the expense. That'll be when we head to the US in August...

    My laptop is a behemoth at around 7kg - needed it for work travel - but there's no way I'm carting that around when I don't need to! I'm planning on buying an Android tablet, as I'm philosophically opposed to Apple's business model, and would rather have access to tens of thousands of free applications anyway. I plan to use it primarily for internet access whilst travelling (email & web) but no doubt it'll come in handy as an e-Reader and mobile games platform as well. I doubt it'll ever replace my desktop (too many 'power' applications I need to use) but I can see myself surfing the net whilst sitting on front of the TV (and my wife complaining about it at the same time!).

    Tried them all.

    I have an iPad, have had an Android Phone, work gives me Blackberry's but my choice is Windows Phone. I have a Samsung Focus with 7.8 and I love it. If only the Nokia Lumia 920 had an SD slot I would upgrade in a heartbeat.

    Got a couple of tablets.

    Don't really use them much for surfing, especially forum browsing .. I need a real keyboard for forum browsing.

    Although, even for general browsing, where not much typing is required, I still prefer the faster operations available on the PC when I'm at home.

    I have an Ipad 2 and love it. Read the newspaper on it easier than reading a paper with my old eyes! So easy to use, again my main computer is for heavy photo processing work these days. Thought the Ipad was a touch big for travel so also got an Ipad Mini which we took overseas. Ideal size for travel, watching movies on the plane etc and just to slip in a carry around bag as you wander around overseas. Quickly hook onto free wifi were ever you are with it and straight away online.

    Tablet or the like? Well, no I have not got any such device, but I have seen 1000s using them almost everywhere. Instead, I have a Bex and a good lie down.

    I seriously couldn't be without my iPad. If I dropped it and broke it, I'd be out to buy one within an hour.

    I have Ipad 3. I use it for many different reasons. When I am out photographing I couple it with a eyefi card in my camera - great for previewing as I shoot.

    When i travel i use it both for reading books and as my general web surfer.

    Last but not least it is a great tourist camera when I could not be bothered carrying my DSLR.

    iPad 2 and iPhone 4S here. Love the iPad for reading, I've got reference books stored on it via iBooks, it's great that you can have your favourite reference books propped up and available whilst sewing, or taking photos Use to use it for web surfing, but found it too clunky for serious forum interaction, it's ability to handle uploading images to forums is horrible, as is it's ability to catalogue and store them. Went back to using a MacBook Air, cheers Deb

    I have an Ipad, I don't use it at all. Gave it to my wife so I could officially uninstall iTunes from my PC.

    William: - Use Chrome for Android, It's a far better browser then the stock Android Browser.

    For those with iPads do you have trouble displaying the full photos on this forum? When I use mine the right side is cut off on nearly every photo. Other forums just re-size but here it is just simply missing.
