Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Tablet Review
If you're looking for a smaller tablet that won't break the bank, the new Samsung tablet is certainly worth a look.
Reading books on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is a fairly rewarding experience, as you can read in a wide range of lower lighting conditions that eReaders fall behind in (well, except for the new Nook). Because the unit is relatively small and easy to hold in one hand, you won't run into the same problems of fatigue or difficulty with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.
Because the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is an Android tablet, it comes with the stock Google Play Books for eReading, but is also capable of using Amazon's vaunted Kindle App. If you'd like to buy an eBook, you can either buy direct via the Play Store, or you can buy from the Kindle eBook store from the Kindle App. Once you've linked your device to an account complete with billing info, you can simply search or browse for a title you'd like to buy, then tap the "buy/download" icon. Your downlaod will begin immediately as soon as your card clears.
Because the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has unfettered access to the Play Store, if you run into an eBook format your device can't read, you can always download a new eReader app, or you can use a program like Calibre to convert files from one format to another in order to be read on your favorite app.
Newspapers & Magazines
With many apps from established bookstores, you can also buy issues of, or subscribe to periodicals of your choice. For most stores, the process is the same as buying an eBook. Once you've set up your account with billing info, tap "buy" or "subscribe" and your issues will download quickly.
