OS is heart of Tablet. The experience you are going to feel will depend upon the apps your OS support, looks and environment your OS provides and lots more. On this competitive era OS of tablets updates frequently. So before buying the tablet make sure that your current version of tablet support the upgrade or not. If yes than how much you can and like this. Though you can always root or Jailbreak the tablet to tweak it as per your need, but it’s still be risky and not possible for everyone. Still look for the upgrade and tweaks that are supported within the warranty of the device.
5. Hardware support
Though your hardware support upgrading of OS, still you need to ensure that your hardware is ready for upgrade on higher revision of OS. Like you can use the higher memory card, your RAM is enough to support the next update and your processor which is optimized for best battery performance, won’t get down when using the tweak version of your OS. Make sure your hardware is robust enough to support maximum USB related utilities. It won’t be a good idea to update your software and facing slow and less charged performance.

Another hand if you are looking this for business communication, games and browsing on the go with constant mailing and social networking without much heading, get one with large display for better and large virtual keyboard, HD video, great games and browsing experience.
7. Terms and Warranty
Tablets are just new style in market and market is not so high, thus it demands more prices. If you decided to head towards tablet, you must first check all the above points, warranty, your price value, and most important user experience at online forums. Also don’t forget to check what will be there inside the box, read the warranty statement online and discuss, if you have plan to get it from other country, you must check if warranty exist there or not.
8. Using apps
Apps are the life of your tablets. While today’s tablet support many free as well as paid apps from android market or say apple store, still tablet with low specification won’t be able to run all those heavy duty and resource eating apps. If you want to tweak your device to run those apps, your warranty will be void and you can’t go far with that. Make sure your backup and sync process is easy, your apps will be installing on SD card or ruin your internal space.

Whatever is your case, you want to use your tablet for pocket use or business USB is the way to explore. Movies, 3G on go with dongle, and even attach keyboard and mice in many case when user are not happy with touch interface all the time.
10. Communication standard
Most of the tablets are coming with Wi-Fi support now days for great Internet experience and downloading apps and media from internet. If you are not in Wi-Fi environment continuously, you may a Tablet with SIM card support for GPRS use. Also if you want it for continuous data transfer, look for Bluetooth support. With 3G service hitting market, look for 3G enable tablet or supported by USB 3g dongle.
