I bought a new tablet. I've wanted one for a long time. They've become surprisingly affordable. I bought the Nextbook8 at Walmart. By the time I left, it was $85 for the tablet, and $10 for the screen protector. I think I'll make my own custom case for protection.
It's an Android tablet, easy to learn to use. It is WiFi only. You can tether it to your smartphone to take advantage of your smartphone's data connection.
I had on hand a 125gb microSD card. The tablet has a slot for microSD card and a HDMI connection. The tablet can be connected to laptop using standard USB data cable. This allows easy transfer of pictures, videos, or documents.
I highly recommend a tablet for those of us with a very mobile lifestyle.
