Tyke Tech: Android Tablets 2012 - What's Useful? (27) RE: Tech: Android Tablets 2012 - What's Useful? 07 Aug 12

Check out the ViewPad7 at Maplin £119 on Offer at the moment. Comes with voice input, Maps, Google Street View, Sat Nav, Wifi, Blue Tooth and if you insert a simcard it's a phone, it sends texts messages, Skype, Vidio and Still Camra Front and Back Shots (no flash) more free apps than a Morris Dancer Can Shake a stick at! Its a radio player on if you have a Wifi connection you can install the BBC Iplayer.It has YouTube installed I have downloaded a Free App that alows the use of MS Office Word,Power Point,Exell and PDF Files. MP3 player and vidio player. Books to download both to read or Talking Books

I have it tethered to my PC now (with a USB cable) and I am using it to connect to Broadband with my Tmobile Sim Card which is a monthly contract unlimited internet with a fair usage policy. I have just ordered a Giff Gaff Free sim Card to use with it 250mins free 0800 type numbers unlimited internet. Giff Gaff use O2 the coverage I don't expext to be a good as Tmoble who's linked to use Orange Coverage when it has the best reception. But the Giff Gaff deal is £10 a month and is not a fixed term contract.

The ViewPad is a bit different to my Nokia 5800 Music Express that I have been using for over Two Years. Things are in different places but the advantage of a 7inch 3 1/2inch Amoled Screen is a plus. But apart from Morris Dancing and not being able to light the gas ring in the Caravan or open bottles of and slice bread there is not a lot it won't do.
