iPad 2 replacement

My iPad 2 is getting a bit battered and tired. Question is, should I replace it with an iPad Air, or go for an Android device? If the latter, which should I choose, and why? I use it for websurfing, email, Evernote, occasional movie watching, Kindle reading, FB, LinkedIn, and a bunch of typical and undemanding apps.

Having recently purchased the ipad air i can highly recommend it.I went for the 64 gig model but for your needs the 16 gig model would be ample.Also try apple T.V which for 100 turns your HD T.V into a smart T.V and enables you to use all of your apple gadgets on the big screen.All brilliant gizmo`s and simple to install

Anyone else finding Lewes Forum extremely slow loading and refreshing lately ? Almost given up sometimes using my I Pad for it. There's no problem with other sites.

If you are used to iStuff it'd probably be simpler to stick with it. I prefer Android myself but only the pure variety as it comes on Google's own devices the Nexus range. Google is just about to bring out it's version of Apple TV called Chromecast. You can get US version now. It costs around 35.

I agree with Deelite: if you've already bought several apps then you'll probably want to stick with the iPad range. If most of the apps you use are free then your options are wider. Which did a test of tablets recently - I think the Samsung Galaxy won by the merest whisker over the iPad, with an honourable mention for the Nexus series. There are some amazing bargains creeping onto the market now - Tescos has launched one, for instance, which gets great reviews, but if you've been used to the quality of a retina iPad then you might find you notice the difference. You could also look at Amazon's Kindle range - the HD Fires look very nice and are quite a bit cheaper than a fully specced iPad.

Deelite 2, as a pedant, can I point out that 'it's' means 'it is', nothing else.

Thanks. It's easy to get sloppy when fiddling around on a tiny screen.

Real point of post: the Tesco tablets are cheap but read the reviews first. They don't seem as reliable as they might be.

You're being obtuse. We weren't talking about ALL households (and you probably knew that already). We were talking about how when... more
