As with every purchase you make, the most important question to ask yourself when choosing the best tablet
is how you plan to use it. An eReader is really just an electronic reading device, while a tablet is more like a portable computer. Whether you're looking to buy a gadget the entire family can enjoy, or you just want one for nighttime reading, you'll want to consider these eReader and tablet features.
eReader/Tablet Screen Size
Tablet screen sizes range from about 5 to 10 inches. If you plan to use yours to entertain the kids with movies and video games on long car trips, or to conduct business presentations, a larger screen might be the right choice. However, if you're looking for an on-the-go option just for you, one with a smaller screen that fits in your purse, travel bag or even in your pocket might be ideal.
eReader/Tablet Keyboard Type
Keyboard design is crucial to many tablet users. Some prefer a virtual on-screen keyboard, which is always included, while others choose tablet models that can convert into something resembling a laptop.
eReader/Tablet Memory Storage and Battery Life
Tablet and eReaders memory starts at 2GB and goes up from there, with battery life lasting as long as 10 hours in some tablets. Many eReaders have a longer battery life, some lasting up to two months on a single charge, based on usage. Some tablets have an SD card slot for expanded storage.
