I just wanted to say that I am very happy with my investment. I’m an android newbie so I cannot really say if it has the same features as an android phone. However, I can say with 100% certainty that you can download applications for it. I think it is great when you want to use the Internet while on-the-go. I’m not really used to the touch screen so it will take me a while to adjust.
I have one too, and I really like it, although mine is an older model with wi-fi only. Still, I can take it anywhere in the house, use it in the bedroom or outside on the patio (lovely in the summer). I haven’t had a chance to take it on an airplane since I got it (I’ve only had it a couple months) but I look forward to having more entertainment options there. Once I took it shopping with me when I was buying something that I knew I might want to look up online to compare, figuring I could stop at a coffee shop or something. I was surprised, the store I was in actually had (very slow) wi-fi for customer use.
