Sondra needs two tablets. One for browsing and email for her husband, and one for more advanced options. Leo says that you have the choice of Windows, Android, and Apple's iOS. Leo says all three work just fine, but very careful about "deals" for under $100. That's a false economy because they're woefully underpowered. You're going to want to spend at least $250-300. Leo says that a detachable bluetooth keyboard will add another $100 to the price as well. So if you need that, you're looking at $400. Android is going to be the best option for that budget. The Google Nexus 10 16GB is $400.

Tim is looking at tablets and wants to know when the next Nexus 10 tablet will come out. Leo says that the Samsung Galaxy Note is a great option, but the screen resolution is a bit disappointing. We're due for a Nexus 10 update. It should be out soon. The current Nexus 10 is still a great tablet, and the Nexus 7 isn't too bad either.
Anna heard that the Google Nexus 10 tablet will have an upgraded quad core processor this year, but is wondering when that would come out. Leo says it'll be available soon after they announce it at Mobile World Congress, but if she's planning to wait on that, there's really no need to wait. The dual core processor is plenty powerful. If she wants to wait though, it really will be a matter of days.
Nat recently bought a Toshiba Excite tablet because it had HDMI and offers expandable memory. After only a week, though, it's become very slow for surfing the web. Leo says that the Excite is an older model and isn't the fastest tablet out there, so it's possible Nat isn't getting the speeds she's used to. Leo says she'd probably be happier with the iPad.
