Sorry if this is a stupid question but ........
I know they've been around for a while but I've just started looking at the tablets and I'm not sure exactly what they do. Are they like a laptop that I can use word or skype? I understand you can download apps like on my phone and also watch films etc. Do you have to sign up to a phone company to connect or do you use it like a laptop and use wifi? Basically I'm not sure if I should buy a laptop or tablet. I'm grateful for any advice however basic.
