Hello! I'm here because I'm researching tablets and looking to upgrade my current smartphone and wanting to make the right choices in tandem - I haven't bought either yet. I'm not an Apple computer user. I've had PCs for over 20 years (Currently a Toshiba laptop and a Samsung netbook) and a Samsung smartphone for 3. But I do have a nanopod 4. My partner has an iphone 2. I'm in the UK.
The main attraction for me is to be able to paint digitally on an tablet like Hockney and to be able to surf in bed and stream Iplayer bbc content, and keep track of gmail. I've just realized that I will have to choose an ipad for my tablet because the only decent painting app available is the one Hockney uses - Brushes - only available through Apple (sigh). The android art apps are ghastly. So I'm currently considering the ipad 3 and wondering about the rumors of an ipad mini and worrying about reports of ipad 3 overheating problems.
And I have questions about storage and moving files between ipad and non-apple devices and how to use itunes with 2 devices. Will search your archives and current threads and post specific questions as appropriate.
Glad to find this forum and see what great support is offered here!
