Time to leave my Nook Color behind. But, where to go now?
I called myself being very diligent in doing my research, before I bought my first tablet, about a year-and-a-half ago. Despite the upgrading my Nook Color with a N2A card, I'm still very disappointed with it. Admittedly, some of it's problem isn't its' own fault: my work's wi-fi signal is notoriously glitchy on any portable device; and apparently none of the University of Phoenix's eBooks are available to read on any portable device yet. I think I'll just hand my Nook Color over to my 15yo daughter, for reading novels for school, etc. Having made those qualifications, this is what I need in a new tablet:
- wi-fi and 3G (4G) capability
- ability to read textbooks (when UOPX allows this; by the way--what is the deal as to why this isn't already available?)
- Google Chrome browser
- Apps I want to be able to use: USA Today, University of Phoenix eCampus, Words With Friends, Dropbox, Facebook, Cozi, IMDb, Beer Universe (or equivalent), Bejeweled Blitz, YouVersion Holy Bible, eBay (& PayPal), Amazon, Evernote, TuneIn Radio, WhatsApp, Adobe Reader, Passbook, Amazon Cloud Player, and Skype.
- I'm traveling to the Holy Land in Feb., 2013. (What connectivity issues might I encounter?)
