Just entered the modern world....

I finally broke down and bought a tablet yesterday. I got a Samsung Galaxy 3 Lite(newer version, smaller and lighter). I wanted something that I could use to preview game camera pictures with and not have to carry a full size laptop.

Initial impression is good. It will do a lot, including GPS, so it will act as a 2-in-1 device for me. It was on sale for $100, so I'm not out a lot of money if it doesn't work out. It also takes front-facing pictures but the MP is only 2 MP.

Nice! Even if it's not tricked out with amazing cameras and 4k resolution screen, that should do nicely! Samsung makes good products.

I presume it runs android?

Yes Sir, it is android. The amount of stuff they can cram into that little box is amazing!

You guys remember like 5 years ago when I was anti-cellphone for all the reasons I've become addicted to my cell phone, but now have on me all the time, and rarely ever even use a computer anymore. Well I foresee the same thing happening with tablets...been anti-tablets since the ipad came out...still think they're the dumbest thing on earth...have my phone and my laptop, why do I need anything else. A couple years from now, I'll probably turn in to a tablet. So give a good review.

Hello Doug, congratulations and welcome to Y2016 and I must say, that was a great price on that tablet!

Ben, this post has been locked into my memory banks for future "I told you so" reference!

Thank you, both. I will also be getting a company issued laptop in July for electronic sensory overload.

Cool Doug. Your going to like it.
I got my second tablet about 2 months ago. The first one sucked big time. the second one,
It isn't bad does most of the stuff a pc can do. Some websites don't play well with a tablet no matter what browser you install on it.

I just got a slate last night it runs windows 10 it's actually pretty sweet. You can use it as a tablet or a laptop. Best of both both worlds and it works great.

I've been waiting for the Android tablets to fall in price...sounds like it might be time to check prices again...

Don't need one, but it might be nice sometimes.
