So wise friends: Time to replace my Motorola Xoom (with LTE) tablet. The battery is now finally wearing out. I got it so that I can tether when traveling and it has served me well. I have decided on the Galaxy Note 10.1 (I like the SPen).
So here’s my decision:
1. Get the tablet, with LTE, for $600 (and 16 GB of ram) or…
2. Get the WIFI only tablet for $499 and 32 GB of ram, and get a mobile hotspot (the “Jetpack”) for $50.
Now–I like option 2. It’s cheaper, and perhaps more flexible. But.. I almost always travel with my tablet, and it means there is one more thing to keep charged, AND that I can either forget at home, or forget on the road.
