It’s hard to deny that when it comes to a smartphone or tablet I’ll choose the iPhone and iPad every time, although I’m the first to admit both devices are far from perfect. One of the biggest issues people seem to have with Apple is the price of their products, and the iPad is not the cheapest tablet on the market.
This has always been a huge issue for those with a smaller budget, which is one of the reasons Apple, released the iPad mini last year. However, the price is still too high for schools, as they only have a limited budget. This causes a bit of a dilemma because these schools realize how popular the iPad is and how important these tablets are for a child’s education, but there is a compromise.
Thanks to an informative article from TabTimes, they have reviewed what they believe to be 5 admirable iPad substitutes, which are perfect for schools, and the Nexus 7 isn’t one of them.
The 5 iPad alternatives ideal for educational purposes in schools are as follows: the Amplify Tablet, Dell Latitude 10 essentials configuration, LearnPad Quarto, Kuno Tablet and the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Each tablet has its good and bad points, but they all have one thing in common, they are far cheaper than the iPad, even the price conscious iPad mini. The prices for each tablet starts from $299, $579, $226, $300 and $159 respectively.
Head over to TabTimes for a full review of why these 5 tablets are a great alternative to the iPad for schools. We have also included video reviews of four of these tablets below for your viewing pleasure.
