Tablet?

Hey guys, I was thinking about getting a tablet (because I lost my iPod at a tennis court) but I want to know your opinions and which one you think is the best... I don't know if I want to get a Samsung with all this stuff going on with Apple. Lemme know what you think!

Im also looking for a tablet and for me, the Toshiba Thrive 10.1 32g is what Im planning on getting. It runs android and has a full size SD card slot, HDMI port, full size USB and mini USB. I've seen it for right around 300$ (including shipping and a few accessories). I know a lot of people that love their Ipads but don't like how they have to use itunes and that they can't really customize anything.

The Thrive offers almost everything a laptop offers, except for a disc drive. I'd much rather have access to a full size USB and an SD card slot than pay twice as much for a single button and a headphone jack.

Hope this helps

I looked at the Thrive and I really liked the look and the USB and SD ports! But where have you found it for $300? The one I saw was for $400. I would really prefer this over a iPod.

One more question... is there any way to get iTunes on an Android device? All of my music is on iTunes because we've only had Apple devices except for phones..

I strongly recommend the kindle fire, I use it everyday, cant live with out it, I'm using it right now. It has awesome apps there is a different free game everyday and I have amazon prime so I get a free book every month and free shows and movies and my kindle. It aslo has Internet so u can do everything an I pad can do and it is less expensive. I once again strongly recommend it!!! Haha

I have the Barnes and Noble Nooks and also an iPad. Personally, the Nook is a little slow for me. Now, it could just be mine (I do tend to drop it a lot ), but everything just seems delayed. I originally intended to use it for games, browser, books, email, etc. But I got so frustrated with it that I just went to reading books on it. SO it is kind of uni-functional. Which for me, anyways, is a big no-no. I personally love the iPad, but it is big and an Apple product. SO if you have doubts about Apple, I say stay away from it. It is JUST like an iPod touch though, just enlarged...and I personally think it is a faster and a little more user friendly. But, if you did not like your iPod, I would say do not get the iPad. But, I have and love both of them. Now granted, the iPad is a LOT more expensive than the nook, Kindle Fire, Sony, Toshiba, etc. But, I think it is worth the price.

Hope this helps!!

I strongly recommend you to go for Amazon's Kindle Fire. The device—which includes access to the Amazon Appstore, streaming movies and TV shows, and Kindle's e-books etc. This is the best thing I think.
