After a long wait I have finally decided to purchase one. My purpose is read stuff, like pdf content conveniently in a small environment, of course to take snaps shots, play music and read foreign languages like Sanskrit, where I keep forgetting the mantras. My original choice was the Rectiva because of the impressive screen display, its sharpness, etc, as I have poor eye sight, thus would need to read the print enlarged to about 14 to 16 point. But the market has so much evolved that there are no so many models with all sorts of gadgets and features that it is challenge to make the right choice. I saw a comparative of the different apple models at http://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Apple-iPad-3,Apple-iPad-2/phones/5715,5255
, but again I am at a loss of what to go for. I would prefer to buy American to keep Americans employed or at least to make them rich. Can the experts suggest some comparative studies or suggestions on which one to go for. Thank u.
