Forums - Mobile Discussion - I need a tablet for my mom

As the title says, my mother wants a tablet and asked me what she should get. I don't own a tablet as of yet and haven't really payed much attention to them so I don't know much about them. Her use of it would be very basic, web browsing mostly with maybe some picture and music usage. She is 74 yrs. old and cheap. First thing that comes to mind is the Kindle but I dunno. What would you guys get and why? Thanks.

I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

Kindle = Price wise

iPad = If she wants it as a fad item.

get her a kindle fire. does the basics well at a cheap price, reliable brand/company.

This should get interesting.
I say ipad as it has by far the best apps BUT cheaper would be the Kimdle Fire and for her would probably be the best choice :)

well my advice is that if she has a smartphone get her a tablet with the same OS. sorry i couldnt help more

Bet With Zero: He says WiiU and XB1 gap will be higher than 1.9M by end of 2014, i say it will grow smaller or vanish. 

Bet with Pezus: i win if Watch dogs sells more on PS3+360  than on next gen PS4 + Xbox One. winner gets 1 month sig control

Bet With JoeTheBro: He says WiiU in Jan 2013 > XB1 Jan 2014, i say the opposite.

Kindle Fire is probably the way to go. The original should go for around 150 and it will do everything she needs.

Don't go cheap, get a Ipad. Well worth it.

Bored? Try:

Book - Malazan book of the fallen 

Game - Fallout New Vegas (Best WRPG of the entire last generation )

TV - Boardwalk Empire (Holy shit Season 4 has been gooood.)

Music - Forest Swords

Kindle Fire would be the good/cheap choice.

The iPad would be the great/somewhat expensive choice.
I have an iPad and I really enjoy it.
