I bought a new tablet on the weekend. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and that’s a rather long model name.
I previously used another 10 inch Android tablet extensively, the Nexus 10, before it’s battery died out. It was awesome to use in bed, to stream movies when I was washing the dishes, look up recipes as I cooked, while I was on the toilet, and while traveling on the plane and in hotels. Once the battery gave out, it became pretty much useless.
Since then, I’ve been using my phone as a replacement for those situations but I often missed having a large screen. It makes reading easier and movies and TV shows just look better. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get a replacement but most Android tablets aren’t that great. A lot of them have really poor screen resolutions and I wanted one that at least had 1080. The decent ones, for the most part, are really expensive too.
This weekend, I randomly did some research and found the Tab A 10.1 was now less than $275 on Amazon. On the Samsung site and other retailers, the list price is still at $399, so this was a great deal. I ordered it Sunday afternoon and it’s supposedly going to be delivered Monday!
Well, I look forward again to pooping and watching big screen entertainment at the same time!
