Tablets and eReaders: Features to Consider

As with every purchase you make, the most important question to ask yourself when choosing the best tablet or eReader is how you plan to use it. An eReader is really just an electronic reading device, while a tablet is more like a portable computer. Whether you're looking to buy a gadget the entire family can enjoy, or you just want one for nighttime reading, you'll want to consider these eReader and tablet features.

Screen size

Tablet screen sizes range from about 5 to 10 inches. If you plan to use yours to entertain the kids with movies and video games on long car trips, or to conduct business presentations, a larger screen might be the right choice. However, if you're looking for an on-the-go option just for you, one with a smaller screen that fits in your purse, travel bag or even in your pocket might be ideal.

Keyboard type

Keyboard design is crucial to many tablet users. Some prefer a virtual on-screen keyboard, which is always included, while others choose tablet models that can convert into something resembling a laptop.
