Tablets have enhanced our lives. They are ideal for online communication, are relatively cheap and, most importantly, they are perfect for carrying around with you. Even when I’m traveling to my next game, carrying my tablet means I’m still in touch with my friends and fans on Facebook or Twitter.
It’s not just a good thing for sportsmen – anyone who works remotely will appreciate the benefits of a tablet. It’s possible to work all day from anywhere, using cellular connections to be online. Recently a survey was held to find out how businessmen and small companies in India felt about tablets, and 70% of respondents said they intended to buy a tablet. With a tablet you can edit documents and send emails – it’s like a full mobile office.
However, there are one or two drawbacks to tablets. For instance, they are much easier to lose , or for someone to steal. Therefore, I highly recommend taking measures to protect your tablet as soon as you buy it. The latest Android tablets include password protection functions which make it almost impossible for anyone to use the device without permission. This may be a numeric code, a password, a graphic key or even your face. The latter is especially convenient – there’s no need to remember anything except your smile! Anti-theft protection is also required. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to completely eradicate this problem, but there are applications that allow you to find the tablet in case of loss or theft. You can also block it remotely and remove all the information from it so your personal details don’t fall into the wrong hands.
The vast majority of tablets in India use the Android system. There are plenty of useful programs and games for it, but there are also viruses to take into consideration. My friends at Kaspersky Lab say there are tens of thousands of these viruses, and 99% of all mobile malware is designed for Android. Tablets need antivirus protection, just like any conventional computer. Kaspersky Tablet Security combines both anti-theft and antivirus protection, saving you the trouble of installing a whole host of security programs.
Another common problem for tablets and other mobile devices is the risk of physical damage – especially if you drop it. To keep your tablet in full working order for as long as possible, remember to use a soft case, a waterproof bag or some other protective cover.
