I am so thankful to my blog, because it has brought me amazing opportunities to review some really great products.
Today, I'm joining Staples and collaborating in their Digital Organization Campaign.....and I'm also going to be telling you all about my husband's favorite new toy. Yes, my husband's, because even though the tablet was sent to me, he quickly claimed it and it has been quite difficult prying it off his hands LOL
Google Nexus Tablet
World's sharpest 7" tablet screen (323 ppi)
Powerful battery, up to 9 hrs of active use
Quad-core speed and performance, 2GB RAM
Powered by Android 4.3, the latest version of world?s most popular mobile OS
If I had to ask my husband exactly what he likes about it, his answer is quick and simple "Everything". He is absolutely besotted with it and uses it not only for college classes, but for reading and even playing games.
I did manage to pry it off his hands for two days so I could enjoy it for myself. Let me show exactly what it does because the possibilities are endless, it really is like having a mini computer in your hands.
First and foremost, I can access my blogs just as easily as if I was on my laptop, which makes it so easy for me when I'm in the kitchen and trying to cook from a recipe on my food blog.
The images are sharp, the text is easy to read, and it's so light that I can carry it to any corner of the kitchen, much better than walking around with a bulky laptop taking up valuable counter space in this tiny kitchen.
I'm able to store recipes in the tablet, which I find very useful as I jot them down, save them, and then later I can upload them to my blog without having to go anywhere else.
It's got everything I could need, right there on the main screen, and at the touch of a button, I can access all the other apps available.
I use so many of these on a daily basis. I was able to enter in my email information and now I can access my email account through the tablet.
Netflix....brilliant quality and I haven't experienced any lagging or buffering issues whatsoever. I've been able to catch up on my favorite TV shows, watch movies and best part, take it anywhere I go that has wifi access.
Facebook.....it's like being on my laptop, same quality, easy to use and the pictures look amazing.
Crochet patterns....because you know I'm all about those. I LOVE having them on the tablet. It's so much easier to slide the tablet into my crochet bag and take it wherever I need it, knowing that with just the touch of one button, I can have the pattern right there at my fingertips.
Games.....I don't play them but my husband does and he LOVES it. He's all about the good graphics and the speed and whatnot, and he has really been enjoying the tablet.
College....he has been able to access his grades and read his text books.
Homeschooling....I was so excited that I could access the online website and even do some of the lessons. It's going to be soooo handy knowing that I can take the school lessons with no matter where we go.
I have yet to figure it all out and I know for a fact that I'm nowhere near finished unlocking all this tablet has to offer.
I'm thinking this would be the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list. Can't tell you how much we are loving this tablet.
