Tablet for Round the World Trip - advice needed
by rtworld - 3/5/13 12:07 AM
Beginning of next year we will be on the road again for 12 months. This time we are considering to bring a tablet instead of our small notebook.
We are a bit overwhelmed with all this different tablet models which are currently on the market. Maybe someone could give us advice for what kind of functions etc. we should look in a tablet.
We would like to use the tablet for the following:
In the offline modus (if we don't have Wi-Fi or not strong enough connection):
- Transferring pictures from our camera's to external hard drive/USB stick (Camera's have SD card, might change if I buy a new camera)
- Connecting external hard drive to tablet to watch movie's etc.
- using a bit word/xls, for budget, lists and so on
In the online modus:
- Upload pictures to blog
Tablet size: 7'' or preferable larger
Weight: max 17.5 ounces/500g
Camera: for Skype
good Battery life
Price: up to $500
