Android Tablets

This is a quick note about Android Tablets. After trying a couple of them over the past six years, all I can say is that they’re pretty bogus, have short lives, never get updated after a year or so, etc. My Google Nexus 7 failed after four years, where its flash memory went bonkers. I still have my LG V700, but it’s slow and vulnerable to hacks because its operating system stopped getting updates a long time ago.

Beware of “free” tablets given away along with cell phone plans. The companies give them away because they want you to rack up extra monthly charges, especially for data.

Kindle tablets are ok if you just use them as readers, but other than that, they’re fairly limited and filled with ads to make up for their low prices.

Instead of Android tablets, I use Apple iPads.  They’re the proverbial Eveready bunny of tablet computers. I recommend them highly.
