Acer Tablet ... can someone explain a few things? (Details follow)
My brother went on and on about his Acer Iconia A500 (I had to look it up) and told me that I needed to get one. I probably sound like I’m Paleolithic or Wilma Flintstone but what is Android and how exactly would a tablet be of benefit over a laptop?
Is it the apps that are attractive? And how does this work against phone apps? Do we just have to many different options in techno- stuff that are duplicating the same things? Can you transfer the stuff you work on from your regular computer to a tablet for portability? Or is it mostly for emails/apps and basic surfing? Is it just a giant phone screen?
I finally got a new laptop (for those of you that followed the saga) and ended up with an Asus. It’s fabulous. But it has mega-memory and is heavy. Does it work like a laptop? What doesn’t it have that a laptop does? (Maybe that’s a better question.)
And if Android is connected to Google, does that mean that this tablet will be able to watch you from its secret built-in eye and track how much water you use and flourescent mercury bulbs you are not using and who you dated in 1984 with that “Flock of Seagulls” hair bob? just a thought :)
