While at the Infusioncon 2012 conference this week, I saw a lot of Web tablets in use. From attendees taking pics of presenters and their slides, to sharing presentations with others in the hallways and for catching up on email and social media, tablets and their users were in full force during the week.
I didn't stare at all the device brands - though I'd guess that 80% of them were iPads from looks alone. And maybe it's just me, or do the iPads look a bit big for carrying and working with? Is anyone else in favor of the smaller 7" screens? If so, then you might be interested in saving space and money by looking at the new ZTE Optik tablet, now being offered by Sprint.
MobileTech Review looked at the ZTE Optik tablet recently, and gave it some nice marks for its affordability and specs. Chief honcho Lisa wrote:
"Honestly, it's a solid tablet for the money. The Optik sells for $99 with a 2 year contract and $349 without contract. That doesn't mean the specs are bargain basement: it has a sharp 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen with good viewing angles that's great for eBook reading, and a 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of storage."
Here's their video overview of the ZTE Optik tablet:
What about other small 7" tablets? Are you using any? Which do you like? Or is the iPad really the only way to go? Leave a note in the comments, and help me find one for the kids!
