What is a Tablet or Ipad?
The iPad or Tablet looks to bridge the gap between the

smart phone, laptop and PC and at the same time give

MP3 players and ebook readers a run for their money.

Their slick design, speedy processor, good connectivity and

incredible features may make them a living-room staple

across the land -- if people can justify buying one!

They are a touch screen computer usually without a

keyboard or dvd/cd drive, however software keyboards can 

be shown onscreen and using the touch screen it allows one

to type.

Pictures/Video and other content can be quickly

manipulated around the screen using just touch on

the screen itself!, using a pinching type gesture

with your fingers onscreen enables sizing of pictures and text,

objects onscreen can be enlarged or decreased quickly with

other cool tricks not available on common Laptops




What is Android?
Android for the people who dont know is the operating
system which runs a device.
It is different to windows, XP, Vista, Apple, Unix and
many more operating systems which you may have heard
of that run on a host of different devices.
An Operating system allows other "Programs" or "App's" to
run on top of the Operating system and talk to the actual
mechanics of the device like to it's storage area or what is
shown on the screen or what comes out of the speakers or
making the camera take a piture etc.These "Programs"
and "App's" are becoming very popular and versatile tools
that run on PC's and Pocket devices such as Smartphones,
now ipad's and Tablets seem to be the next revolution in
digital gadgets.

My Advice before you Buy any iPad or PC Tablet!


 Most iPad's and other PC Tablet's will need an internet

connection to download Ap's and other media (and in the

case of Android Ipad tablet devices, a constant internet

connection for some ap's to work!).


Check if you are going to use wifi (normally

available at home if you have Broadband and a

wireless router) or via the mobile phone network where

you will need to have a Sim card (in a capable ipad

tablet device) and some form of contract with a Cell

phone network with a minimum 2/3G or HSPDA DATA

connection and usage allowance (using Data on the

"Pay as you go"Phone networks can be very expensive!).



Check that the ipad or Tablet device you are

buying has the facility to connect to the internet

with at least one of the above methods. 







Other considerations before buying

an Ipad or PC Tablet are:-


Check List


Memory, can you upgrade your iPad or Tablet?

Processor Speed, what is the speed of your

iPad or Tablet .

Ports (Sockets),What Data/Input and Outputs

does your iPad or Tablet have? HDMI? USB?

Android Latest News



The Latest Version of

Android is 9.0, Pie

The initial version of Android Pie (9.0) was released

on August 6,

2018 on Pixel devices.

A Brief Android Version History

We thought it fitting to give a brief rundown of each Android

version on the

accompanying code name and release date. You know, for completeness.

  • Android 1.5, Cupcake: April 27, 2009
  • Android 1.6, Donut: September 15, 2009
  • Android 2.0-2.1, Eclair: October 26, 2009 (initial release)
  • Android 2.2-2.2.3, Froyo: May 20, 2010 (initial release)
  • Android 2.3-2.3.7, Gingerbread: December 6, 2010 (initial release)
  • Android 3.0-3.2.6, Honeycomb: February 22, 2011 (initial release)
  • Android 4.0-4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich: October 18, 2011 (initial release)
  • Android 4.1-4.3.1, Jelly Bean: July 9, 2012 (initial release)
  • Android 4.4-4.4.4, KitKat: October 31, 2013 (initial release)
  • Android 5.0-5.1.1, Lollipop: November 12, 2014 (initial release)
  • Android 6.0-6.0.1, Marshmallow: October 5, 2015 (initial release)
  • Android 7.0-7.1.2, Nougat: August 22, 2016 (initial release)
  • Android 8.0-8.1, Oreo: August 21, 2017 (initial release)
  • Android 9.0, Pie: August 6, 2018

As you can see, the update system was without any sort of regularity early on

, but the Ice Cream Sandwich era started the yearly OS version update schedule.

A few other fun notes:

  • Honeycomb was the only tablet-specific version of Android, and it ran
  • alongside the Gingerbread build for phones. The separate phone and
  • tablet OSes were then combined starting with Ice Cream Sandwich.
  • Ice Cream Sandwich was arguably the most dramatic update to
  • Android to date. It not only combined the tablet and phone versions
  • of the OS, but completely overhauled the look and feel of the system.
  • Google initially released developer-focused Nexus devices to
  • highlight each Android version’s power. This eventually evolved
  • into the consumer-focused Pixel device line we have today.
  • Android KitKat marked the first time Google teamed up with a commercial
  • manufacturer for an Android release. They did it again for Android Oreo.

Android v3.0 Honeycomb operating system

is now making it's way onto Tablet devices

available from May 30th, see Amazon Acer Ad

above for example


We are told although version 2.2 (Froyo)

of Android (used on Smartphones) is being

used on many early ipad tablets, it is an operating

system which is stretching its limits to work on

ipad Tablet's not so bad on 7 inch ipad

Tablets but not very good on 10 inch Tablets.

 The next version 3.0 of Software we here is code

named "Honeycomb" or "Gingerbread" and is

more specific for use with ipad Tablets both 7 inch

and 10 inch Tab's.







Operating Systems


Android operated iPad devices (which work well with

Google maps and other Google services) have different

Aps (Applications) available to them compared to an

Apple iPad. The market place or Website Aps are

downloaded from are different on both platforms,

although popular Aps are usually available on

both types of iPad Tablets,...Android tend to have

more useful free Aps available and is a fast growing

market as anyone can create an ap forAndroid iPad

devices as the code is open source.


Its worth mentioning that Windows Operating

System is expected to be available on some iPad

devices with other makers offering their own

operating systems for their own iPad Tablet

devices to confuse matters.

Personal Note:-I believe Android is the

Future for iPads!
