I'm basically looking into getting a Le Pan tablet for my grandmother, and am wondering whether to get the TC970 or the II. Here's some background and my dilemma... Since November, I have been the happy owner of a Le Pan TC-970. Recently I've been trying to get my grandmother "doing the e-mail" as she says, and I've been going over to her place and giving her lessons on my tablet, and have even left it with her a few days. She is, functionally, computer illiterate, and anything but the absolute most ridiculously basic activities are out of the question - I basically have to turn the device into a VCR for her to use it. Advanced functionality is not an issue - all she really does is go on, click on the hotmail app, and fumble (often with very great difficulty) through the menus and get to the e-mail section. At that point, the speech to text function is very important since she types very, very slowly and messes up doing it a lot. That being said, it's time to get her her own tablet. I'm sticking with Le Pan because I know the tablet reasonably well and feel I can help her with it more - the question is, do I get her the TC970 or the Le Pan II? Here are my deciding factors... 1) Which one has the more simple interface - Froyo VS Gingerbread, I guess. Which is more stable, which has fewer featurs/is more streamlined/less likely to change. Basically, I need something that I can one-time set up and then be as streamlined as humanly possible for an elderly lady who will - simply put - not really understand anything that is going on, but will just use it to perform a few simple activities. 2) Sometimes using the TC970, it chugs a bit between programs or menus - only for a second or two at a time, but for her, that will make the difference between hitting "back" to go from the subject field of an e-mail to the main form and tapping back six times in a panic to bring her back to the home screen. Does the Le Pan II experience less program lag in any significant way? 3) Speech to text... Is it improved at all on the Le Pan II compared to the TC970? It's pretty finicky on the TC970 - if the built in is better on the Le Pan II, it might be worth getting the II for her rather than the 970. 4) Overall stability. Freezes, crashes, and especially things that require use of the reset button are best avoided - she won't know how to handle it. Ideally I'd like as few phone calls as possible... Which one of the two is more stable? Just to be clear, she really is that computer illiterate. Weeks after starting, probably close to two dozen hours spent sitting over the tablet with her walking through the same simple functions again and again and again, she still needs to call me on the phone to navigate from her home screen to getting to the "compose" menu in hotmail. More features is a detriment to her - I need the simpler operating system for her, not necessarily the more functional. Anyone have any suggestion about which one is the better choice for my grandmother? Thanks!
