Best Tablet for Reading PDFs?
I need a tablet that can read PDFs and is relatively large. Here are my requirements:
-Handle PDFs well (adjust scaling, take notes, flip through pages quickly)
-Large touchscreen, preferably 7'' or more
-Memory not so important, only need a few GB
-Long battery life
-Lowest price possible
I was looking at Amazon's line of Kindles, but saw many people complained that they don't do well with PDF files. Anyone have a current generation Kindle (if so please tell me the model) that can affirm or deny this?
Go with an ipad not that nook/kindle BS or any kind of android
You can choose an iPad. It's reliable and has long battery life.
The problem isn't with the tablet, it's with the pdf files. Many pdf files are actually just images. In cases like this, it's totally static. You can't reflow it, enlarge the font or do anything with it because it's just an image. It doesn't matter what reader you have in a case like this.
The Kindle DX will probably be your best option, given the screen size you want. It's been discontinued but there are used and refurbished units available. You could also look into a cheap tablet.
Actually PDF is a rather lousy format when it comes to reading. People complain about it because it is PDF rather than it is Kindle.
As to a tablet, 7-inch Nexus 7 offers a higher resolution than 7-inch iPad mini, but 9.7-inch iPad is great (just a bit too large.)
On the other than, you need to choose a good reader app to read PDF. Mantano app for (Android) Nexus 7 is a good reader for pdf.
Kindle Fire HD 8.9" would be the best option its has:
- 8.9" HD screen with 1920*1280 pixels @254PPI
- 1.5Ghz Dual core HD processor for fast speed
- Amazon is pretty reliable
- You would be able to find it for the lowest price possible
- You can get over 10 hours for continuous use
- 16Gb Memory
