Buy: From Amazon
Tablets are the it gift when it comes to Father’s Day, with nearly every shopping poll putting them in the top five of what dads want this year. But tablets, like smartphones, are not one-size fits all. Joe, the dad friend who wants a tablet over all else this year, is a no-nonsense late adopter who really wants a tablet so that he can feed his reading addiction. He reads at least one book a week, and he likes the idea of buying ebooks online, having instant access to them, and carrying his entire library with him wherever he goes. For him, the Amazon Kindle Fire is a perfect fit. It’s an easy-to-use e-reader with the accessibility of a tablet, all for less than $200.
Which tablet is the best fit for your dad? Use Tecca’s tablet guide to help you figure it out. A decision might come down to your own budget and what you can afford. Remember to shop for last year’s or refurbished models if you want to save big. Other top tablets include the Asus Transformer, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and of course, the iPad.
