Question
QUESTION: Hello there - how do I go about choosing which tablet to buy? Which is best: iPad, Andriod, Windows or BlackBerry? Also which screen size is suitable? I already have a iPad with Retina Display. I want to buy another tablet which will allow the kids to view movies, TV shows and cartoons. The kids will be using the tablet to watch movies downloaded from YouTube. Must take a memory card upto 32GB or more. Any suggestions please?

Thanks.

ANSWER: Dear Craig,
Currently you got the best tablet & in few months Asus will be releasing its new tablet to compete
iPad with retina display . Regarding tablet choice (ipad, Andriod, Windows or BlackBerry)etc it depends upon many factors & personal preference so if you want to buy tablet for yourself then do tell me your preferences in detail.

For your kids I recommend new google nexus 7 because its features & value is good,visit link below.

QUESTION: Thank you very much Salman for the email reply. I'm currently using iPad with retina display for myself. I'm on the look out for a tablet for the kids to use whilst I drive. The tablet must have a external memory card holder so that I can download videos from PC onto memory card to use with the tablet.

I personally don't mind which tablet as long as memory card. Will google nexus 7 be able to offer this? Is there an alternative tablet than this?

One more thing. Do you know any program's that I can use to downloads YouTube movies and convert them to be used on tablets?

Please advise.

Thank you,
Craig.

Answer
I would recommend Acer Iconia A1, if you want to opt for expensive tablets then you can choose from Samsung Galaxy Tab or Asus Transformer Series.

As you know there are plenty of Microsoft windows based tablets but I won't recommend you any because windows app store significantly lacks in software as compared to (Apple or Android apps store).

You didn't specify that you want to convert video on computer/notebook or on Tablet so I will enlist video converter for all as under,

---For Computer/Notebook---
You can use free video conversion software (Free make video converter)

or paid software (Xilisoft video converter)

On Andriod Tablet you can visit this link or search Android application store (Google Play)
