Tablets: DIVING IN presented by Cherie Lejeune and Ralph Sklarew
By now we’ve all been inundated by news and ads for the latest iPad, it’s Android competitors and buzz about the upcoming Windows 8 tablets. But for those who haven’t taken the plunge April’s meeting will include a brief review of tablets and apps:
What they are — and we’ll bring a few examples to demonstrate
How they differ from portable PCs (& smart phones) — you’ll just lean back and love this one
How to use them — all demonstrated on our tablets, shown handheld and overhead
Accessories like a stylus, screen protector, keyboard, case and headset
Why tablets are best for you — this will be touching!
The real action for tablets use is all about the apps so we’ll demonstrate some of our favorites for
Communications — text in email & text messages, social network, phone & voice, video
Entertainment — reading, games, music, podcasts, pictures, video, TV, movies
Information — Internet, articles, health & medical, mapping
Record keeping — calendar, personal, financial
Shopping — bar code, reviews, prices, purchase
“Productivity” — office-like, cloud
Please bring your tablets, if you have them, and your questions…lots and lots, for others will benefit from your inquisitiveness. And for those of you existing tablet users, prepare to share your favorite apps!
