Tablet war 2011: Nook vs. Kindle vs. iPad
I just read an article on 3 tablets, it breaks down the difference between the different tablets with price points from 200 dollars to 500 dollars. The 3 tablets in this article do not subscribe to any cellular services. They all need WiFi to access the Internet for browsing, downloading books, applications and any streaming media.
I use the Motorola Xoom which is a LTE 4G tablet on Verizon Wireless. My tablet does what the Nook, Kindle Fire and iPad do and has its own built in service. I can use my tablet anywhere on the Verizon Wireless Network and it has its own built in hotspot that I can allow up to 5 other WiFi enabled devices connect to the Internet.
