When Staples says "That was Easy" they mean THAT WAS EASY!!! I went shopping for a tablet on Staples.com. I knew sort of what I wanted. I wanted a light weight tablet for reading in bed. I opened up the Staples website and there are pages and pages and PAGES of tablets!! So many choices!! It would have been overwhelming except that Staples has all the tools you need to zone in on what's perfect for YOU!!
I was able to narrow down my list by size. 7 to 7.9 inches was the perfect size for me. Next I narrowed my list by cost. Then I narrowed my list by reviews. Then I used the option to compare up to 3 tablets. NOW we're talkin'! I was able to see how my top 3 tablets stacked up against each other. There is even a button to 'highlight the differences' Using all these tools helped me narrow down the tablets and pick the perfect one for me!
Staples.com website is super easy to use!! So what did I end out picking?! I chose the Nexus 7 16GB Tablet from Google. Staples had 321 reviews! With a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. That is impressive.
Shipping is unbelievably fast. (I'm not positive, but, the Staples fairy must have hand delivered this!! It was truly that fast!)
Inside the box, the Nexus was already half charged, which is really great, because I have the patience of a gnat!!
The Nexus set up was easy. Turn the Nexus on, a screen comes up with directions to connect to the Internet and BAMB BABY you are on your way!!
I've found I can get 3 nights of reading and or playing games before I need to charge the Nexus 7.
The write up says: Over 9 hours of HD video playback, 10 hours of web browsing, 10 hours of reading and up to 300 hours of stand-by time so you spend less time charging. That's holding very true for me.
I can read my Gmail, I can watch YouTube, I have all my iTunes music loaded, which was SUPER easy with the Synctunes Wireless that came with the Nexus 7. I wasn't expecting such great sound from such a small tablet, but what a great bonus.
The Nexus is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The latest version of the world's most popular mobile platform. (Seriously! Who doesn't love a Jelly Bean?)
I can watch movies, I can SKYPE!!! Nexus has a front facing 1.2MP camera.
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth!!
I've already loaded up all of my books from both Kindle and Kobo. I've got Bejeweled. Google Earth, I have navigation and I have traffic and weather!!
Video's play like watching a television.
I am a million times over thrilled with my Nexus 7 from Staples.
MAN!! THAT was EASY!!!!!!!
