assorted tablets Tablets are portable, practical and user-friendly, multimedia devices with a wide assortment of features that allow you to accomplish many day to day activities. With a tablet, there is no keyboard and no mouse. Instead, you tap the screen to make choices and enter text. The built-in programs on a tablet are known as apps.
The OS (operating system) is the basic software on your tablet. For the tablets available on the market right now, there are three options:

iOS

:

all iPads from Apple

Android

:

the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Google Nexus (van Asus), as well as many other brands such as Sony or Acer.

Windows 8

:

diverse brands. At the moment there are not as many tablets available that run Windows.

 

Use a book from Visual Steps to get to know your tablet.

 

The Android OS is available in several different versions. The latest version is 4.4 (called Kitkat). There are still many tablets running an earlier version of Android, 4.3, 4.2 or 4.1 (called Jelly Bean) or 4.0 (called Ice Cream Sandwich). Each version has different functions and a different interface. Manufacturers can also implement their own branding (for example Samsung, Sony and Acer) on the tablets they offer. The start screen on a Samsung tablet can look very different from that of a Sony tablet. Usually however, basic functionality and the operations needed to use various apps are for the most part the same. Sending and receiving email, for instance, is done pretty much the same way on all Android tablets.

Visual Steps has published books for the iPad from Apple, the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Note, the Google Nexus and the Kindle Fire HDX. All of these books will enable you to discover the full potential of your tablet in an easy, step by step manner and at your own pace!

 

Suitable for the iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab or Note, Google Nexus and Kindle Fire HDX.

 

Help! Help! I have a tablet from another brand
If you have a tablet from a different brand, or wish to acquire one, and it does run the operating system Android 4.4, 4.3 or 4.2 is, you can probably use the book Google Nexus Tablet for SENIORS. The Google Nexus runs a 'basic' version of Android which is installed on various other tablets. There will most likely be similar screens on the tablet as shown in this book, making it possible for you to learn to work with your specific tablet. If desired, the book can be viewed in a bookstore or library to compare the screen shots in the book with the one you have or wish to acquire.
