Which tablet is right for me – How big will it be?

Who wants to buy a tablet PC, is facing a difficult decision to choose how much memory he need, and the importance of UMTS and LTE. This year there will be a tablet PC. This decision should have like many people already. Just a year or two, so that was also clear what a tablet to buy, in most cases it was an iPad.

Now there is plenty of choice. In addition to dozens of Android tablets, partly marketed by Google itself, now also Windows 8 computers are entering the market, which usually combine tablet and notebook in and come with rotating screens or attachable keyboards.
Here are the answers to some basic questions to make it easier to opt for a particular tablet:

How big will it be?

The most important decision you have to make before you buy is whether you want to have a device the 7-inch class, or prefer one of the 10-inch class. It dramatically affected the price and the uses. A good 7-inch tablet, such as Google’s Nexus 7, do you get for 200 euros, while the corresponding 10-inch model is twice as expensive. Apple’s iPad is the price difference is not less dramatic.

With 174 Euro Amazon’s Kindle Fire is particularly favourable, but has little memory (8 GB). The HD version of the Fire costs 40 euros more, it offers a much better screen and twice as much memory. The functionally crucial difference between the two size classes: 7-inch tablets are good because of their size in the first place to consume. Read, surf the web, read email, watching videos and playing doing great with it.

To edit text, the virtual keyboards, but they are usually too small for image editing on the displays and show too few details. Making music, for example, synthesizer apps annoy closely spaced keys virtual keyboards. For these things, the great Tablets are better suited.

What does a retina display?

Since the third-generation iPad Apple advertises called retina displays.index These are screens with very high resolution. While the iPad still displaying 1024 x 768 pixels on its screen, in light iPad 3 and 4 you can found four times as many, that is 2048 x 1536.

It comes to the sharper pictures and video, which show more details. In addition, you can watch movies, for example, in the same full-HD resolution, as it indicates a large TV. The difference compared to normal display is clearly visible, and anyone who has ever used such a display does it hard to pass up. However, Apple is not the only vendor in such high-resolution tablet computer.

Asus offers the Transformer Pad with Infinity at 1920 x 1200 pixels; Google’s Nexus 10 is 2560 x 1600 pixels with an even higher resolution than the iPad. Generally speaking, there is high-resolution screens are only for 10-inch Tablets.
