One of the most common questions medical students and doctors ask is “which is the best tablet to use in the hospital?” We all know that there are numerous tablet models out there, but there are only a few that can offer the best performance in a hospital set up. Below are some of the best low cost tablets that can be best for the medical students.
The original iPad is too big to be used in a hospital set up, and it won’t be easy for the residents and medical students to carry the device around the hospital. However, the Apple iPad Mini has solved this issue. The dimensions of the device are 7.87 x 5.3 x 0.28 inches and it can be easily accommodated in the pocket of the white coat. In addition, as the device is lightweight, it will not make the side of the coat slide down.
The 7.9-inch display is best to read books or to view images. The built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, HD camera, A6X processor, and the storage space of 16 GB or greater are all icing on the cake. In addition, Apple offers numerous apps for medical students.
The Kindle Fire HD is the updated model of the Kindle Fire from Amazon. This device offers a slightly better screen than that of iPad Mini, in terms of pixel density and resolution. The device features as 1280 x 800 pixels display against the 1024 x 768 pixels display of the iPad Mini. However, the screen size of the device is smaller with a 7-inch display. The dimensions of the device are 7.6 x 5.4 x 0.4 inches.
Amazon offers integration of Amazon Prime and beyond that, the features offered by the tablet are quite similar to that of the iPad Mini tablet. It offers front facing HD camera, Wi-Fi, dual core processor, and good storage space. Moreover, you can also install Android apps for medical students on the Kindle Fire tablet.
The Galaxy Tab 2 is the second 7-inch tablet from Samsung. The device has decent features, is very light (340 grams only), and is powered by Android 4.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. However, the screen of the device is not as pixel dense or vibrant when compared to the Kindle Fire HD or iPad Mini. In addition, the device offers an internal memory of 8 GB, but that can be expanded with a MicroSD card.
The price of the device is almost the same as that of Kindle Fire HD, so if you are planning to make the selection of the tablet based on price, Kindle Fire HD would be your best bet.
