CVS has tablets and tablets!

You may find it odd that a drug store would be the place you could finally afford to purchase a Tablet computer.  However, CVS has made quite a push with electronics since September 2010 when the Sylvania Netbook was introduced for $99.  They also introduced a low price Ereader at the same time. 

It’s baaaack!

The Sylvania Netbook was very hard to get due to overwhelming demand and very low supply.  Then the people who did purchase them began bringing them back in record numbers because they couldn’t get them to connect to Wi-Fi.  This may be been a product glitch, or it may have been lack of consumer understanding, which is what a CVS store manager told me.  I don’t know, but I am inclined to agree. 

Oddly, today the shelves were also stocked upon the little 7″ Sylvania Netbooks, too. which had been unavailable since well before the Holidays. The Ereaders were always in stock, so I don’t really think that they took off that well.  They were around $149.00 most of the time, and that is too close to Kindle prices on Amazon to warrant a purchase. 

“I” before “E”

Would an i-Pad be a better tablet computer?  Of course it would, if you can get one.  Of course, an Apple product would be better than a Craig brand, but not if you can’t afford it!  This touchscreen on this device is a little sluggish having a slightly older Android OS that did not use the newest touchscreen technology.  You can calibrate it to your touch, and this helps a lot. 

It is quite satisfactory for most regular daily requirements of a tablet.
