Sony Tablet S
The Sony Tablet S runs on the Android operating system. This means that students automatically have access to thousands of applications that can help them with their coursework. The device has a 9.4-inch screen, support for memory cards, a dual core processor, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Tablet S tapers from 20.6 mm on one side to 10.1 mm on the other side, which gives it a unique design. This enables students to grip the device firmly, which is beneficial during long lectures. Additionally, students also have access to Sony's large entertainment and media library.
Amazon Kindle Fire
The Amazon Kindle is a great tablet for college students - mainly because of its affordability. Priced hundreds of dollars less than Apple's iPad (at under $200), the Kindle is a popular choice for those who care less about the brand and more about the tablet's function. Plus, this 7-inch tablet syncs beautifully with Amazon's collection of multimedia, books, and music. The Kindle is Android-powered, and has great Internet compatability.
Though not an imperative technology device for college students, tablets are a nice supplementary device for managing your schedule, using productivity apps, keeping you entertained during those long study sessions, and logging on to the Internet to conduct research or view your University's online student portal.
