Seniors are often taken as a group that is not really into technology. In truth, many senior citizens have much more interest in tech as compared to today’s generation. However, every age and generation has certain expectations and ways of working. Senior citizens look for devices or products that are easy to use, yet powerful. They know exactly what they want out of a device and can afford exactly what they want.
Not every tablet out there can truly satisfy the taste of senior citizens. They need a tablet that works well, can give them access to books and videos as well as let me communicate with their family. Can a tablet be simplistic yet powerful? Yes!
Check out these top 3 tablets for senior citizens that are completely suited for the mature and smart seniors of today.
Apple iPad mini is one of the most obvious choice when it comes to a good quality and smart tablet. The iOS has the reputation for being simple, reliable and the app collection lets you do just about everything under the sun.
iPad mini is a smart choice due to its weight and size, making it easier to handle. Seniors who have health issues or joint problems will love the thinner and lighter iPad mini. The size makes it also great as an e-reader where the weight does not bother you.
Another great advantage of Apple iPad mini is the price, starting at just $329. The processor is a bit slow as compared to the regular iPad, but you wouldn’t feel the hitch, if you are not gaming or doing other heavy stuff.
This is one tablet that is very well suited for senior citizens. Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has a fast processor, 1920×1200 display, and a dual-band Wi-Fi antenna, all at the steal price of $269. What makes Amazon Kindle stand apart is the unlimited access to Amazon’s world. The Kindle has direct access to e-books and movies available at Amazon’s digital storefront.
So, a senior who is looking for a tablet for entertainment purpose will absolutely love the easy access to everything purchased through Amazon. Also, one can sign up for Amazon Prime and get direct access to a complete library of streaming video and also borrow an e-book every month.
This is a very basic no frills type of tablet for seniors. The Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ tablets start from $149 with a 9-inch 1920×1280 display, a dual-core processor and strong battery life. Barnes & Noble has a great selection of e-books and one can enjoy many hours of happy reading on this e-reader cum tablet. The tablet is also good for watching movies through Google Play. However, one major drawback is the lack of camera. So video chatting or taking snaps is just not going to happen.
