I have been lent an ipad for the summer holidays and it goes back next week.
Mathsphobic DD uses it for some holiday school work and has downloaded lots of games, most of which I think are a waste of time but which keep her happy on car journeys, trains, etc.
I have the above phone, but have never managed to make it do anything other than text and take (v good) photos. Can it be used for games, educational stuff - I have some good maths apps on the ipad - and watching films, reading, etc?
Nanny, when you say 'running more than just a couple of apps', do you mean storing them on the Galaxy, or using them at the same time?
Next thing to think about, I suppose, is whether to get a Samsung tablet or an ipad for the family ... the prevalent view seems to be that the ipad is hugely overpriced, just due to its name, but can others do the same things????
