Tablet shopping is a relatively new phenomenon. When the first iPad was launched in 2010, it created a whole new market for customers who were looking for something larger than their phones, but smaller than their laptops for watching movies and playing games on the go. 

While the iPad is still one of the best tablets you can buy, there are now scores of other devices from Amazon, Samsung, and others. Not only that, but tablets have gone from consumption-only to devices that let us get work done — not to mention models made specifically for kids. Now that you have more choices than ever, it’s important to ask the right questions.
