LG Modestly Upgrades 10.1-Inch G Pad

August 28th, 2015 | Posted by zackduncan in Android | Tablet - (0 Comments)

The LG’s G Pad series, most known as a copy of the Google Nexus 7, has upgraded to the new G Pad II. The G Pad II, unfortunately, won’t be able to make it to the IFA 2015 in Berlin. It’s not quite clear on prices and usability just yet, but we may be looking at a pretty cheap tablet. The Snapdragon 800, which is the G Pad’s processor, is almost 2 years old, but they have it running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It also has a 10.1-inch screen that uses about 224 pixels-per-inch, which doesn’t even compare to the upcoming Samsung’s 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2.

LG G PadJust about the only thing that’s cool about this device is its decent battery life. It’s a 7,400 mAh battery with a more energy-efficient processor. The only color option you get to choose from is bronze, that’s it. The G Pad II will also be including an e-reading mode that reduces blue light output. They claim this will let your read for hours without getting a headache.

This tablet doesn’t seem like the most thrilling new device on the market. iPads and Android tablets are only getting bigger and better. If you don’t want to put all that money into a full-blown Android tablet and just want a cheap tablet that runs the latest Android with an “ok” battery life, then you’re best bet would be the G Pad II.

How iPads Increase Event Satisfaction

July 6th, 2015 | Posted by zackduncan in iPad | Rental | Tablet - (0 Comments)

Company events are widely considered one of the best ways to grow your brand and provide useful information to attendees directly. When a business is hosting an event or training course, the typical run-of-the-mill presentations and paper evaluations can get very dull very quickly. What can you do to fix that problem? Well thankfully, for all of us, we have technology. Take the iPad for example. The tablet that made tablets practical, essentially. So how are you going to use this tablet technology to further your brand and help with attendee engagement? Just know that whether it be on the event floor or during the presentation, an iPad can really help bolster your event.

Think about how much paper you may use during the entirety of your event. The copier would be on overload. Instead, why not go a bit greener by using an iPad to take care of things such as speaker and presentation evaluations. Paper signups and registration can get a bit hectic at times as well, depending on the type of event you may be hosting. By putting these types of forms directly onto the iPad your company has provided, you can save paper and keep everything much more organized in the long run.

When your company hosts an event, you want to be as engaged with your attendees as possible. Communication is key in these types of situations. Everyone in the event industry can tell you about live tweeting during a presentation, and that’s just one of the ways an iPad can help. Hashtags aren’t just limited to Twitter anymore. We are now able to use hashtags on all major social media formats, thus making for a much more accessible conversation outlet. Whether it be a forum for attendees to talk about the event on, or if you’re using a hashtag to compose a poll or live tweeting question and answer session, the iPad can help you greatly.

Most attendees will respond to something more visual rather than something they have to read. A picture is worth a thousand words after all. Your attendees will be able to talk to loved ones back home with Skype coming standard on almost all iPads now. With incredible camera quality and processing power, the iPad will be able to display crystal clear pictures and the cameras do their jobs very well. Not only will the attendees’ video chats go well (depending on the internet strength), but they will also be able to take gorgeous pictures that can more easily be posted directly to social media and other sites. Anyone who may be a bit more into photography than others will be able to transfer their pictures taken on a phone, and send them directly to the iPad.

The use of an iPad during the presentation can be beneficial to attendees as well. We all know that nosebleed seats can make it hard for us to see. By having the iPad out during the presentation, you’re able to have the slide show play directly on the iPad through a master iPad controlling it. This way, those sitting in the back won’t have to strain their eyes, nor will they have to try to follow along as it will already be done for them. Think of this as well. Many more attendees will respond to an interactive presentation rather than watch another guy fiddle around with the same hand motion for 2 hours while he speaks.

When you bring the iPad into the play during the speakers presentation, he may become more engaged with the audience and vice versa. Attendees will be more interested especially if the presentation is being played through their respective iPads as well.

There is a multitude of different ways to help make your brand and/or company grow. One of the best and easiest ways to make that happen is at an event. With iPads, or any tablet for that matter, at your next event helping to make it a success, you can be sure that your brand and your audience will grow. Try utilizing iPads at your next business event and see the difference for yourself!

Microsoft SurfaceMicrosoft recently announced that it has relaxed a Windows 8 certification requirement, allowing devices with lower resolutions. According to analysts, this move signals that Microsoft could be the next company in the industry to make the shift to smaller, less expensive tablets.

According to IDC Analyst Bob O’Donnell, “The sub-eight-inch part of the tablet market will be growing this year to about 55% of the entire market. Microsoft hasn’t even been playing in that segment, and they needed to do something.” Microsoft laid out all the details of the new relaxed rule in a newsletter released March 12 by its certification program. The program oversees use of the Windows logos that OEMs display on their hardware.

Microsoft made it clear in the newsletter that even though it will allow lower-resolution devices, it would still prefer that original equipment manufacturers continue to work with higher resolution screens. Microsoft also detailed that the exact specifications of the new resolution are 1,024 x 768 pixels.

According to the newsletter, “This doesn’t imply that we’re encouraging partners to regularly use a lower screen resolution. In fact, we see customers embracing the higher-resolution screens that make a great Windows experience. We understand that partners exploring designs for certain markets could find greater design flexibility helpful.”

The previous stipulations of the Windows 8 certification, which also applied to Windows RT, required screens with a minimum 1,366 x 768 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. This lower resolution rule would allow for tablets running Windows 8 and RT to be smaller in size, comparable to Apple’s new iPad Mini.

This move by Windows is obviously an attempt to stay competitive with the two other big names in the tablet industry, Apple and Samsung. Smaller Windows 8 tablets would be able to compete against Apple’s iPad Mini and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.

If you want to try out the Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 or the other tablets mentioned in this article, like the iPad Mini or the Galaxy Note 8, then RentOurTablets.com is where you need to look!

Tons of Different Benefits from Renting a Tablet

Microsoft SurfaceTablet PCs are very cool pieces of technology but a lot of people don’t really need one on a long term basis. Many people get them simply because they are trendy or they don’t need all the features that come with a laptop, but these devices do have a lot of productive uses and are perfect for college students or businessmen who are always on the road.

One thing that tablet PCs allow you to do is take them everywhere, including a classroom, business meeting or trade show. You can buy digital copies of books from online retailers and read them directly on your tablet or download different business apps that allow you to fully connect during a meeting or presentation.

However, even though tablet PCs are extremely convenient and cheaper than buying a fully-featured laptop, they are not always cheap. Sometimes tablet PCs can sell for as high as $600, which is a lot to throw down if you ask me. That is where RentOurTablets.com comes in with its full line of tablet PC rentals.

RentOurTablets.com allows you to rent a tablet PC for a period of time, like a school semester perhaps, so you can have all the conveniences of a tablet PC without the cost of buying one. In many cases, renting a tablet is far less expensive than buying one, especially if you are a student where money is always tight or you don’t have a long-term need for one.

RentOurTablets.com has many regular tablets in stock, like Apple’s iPad, and even some convertible tablets (devices that convert from a laptop to a tablet) like the Inspiron Duo Convertible Tablet from Dell. You can even rent Microsoft’s new Surface Tablet, which comes complete with Windows RT.

Tablets can be expensive and unless you are planning on using yours all the time, it doesn’t make sense to jump in and spend a lot of money on one. If you need one for a school semester to save on books or for a business meeting that you are taking out of town, then renting a tablet is your best bet and RentOurTablets.com can get you whatever you need.
