Hi! I'm looking at getting my first tablet, and I've never had a smart phone, so: please bear with me if these are dumb questions ;).

I'm posting here because I'm hoping to get one that 'plays well' with my NEX5R, if there's one that's easier to work with for a newbie? I'd like to be able to use it for post-processing, and maybe for remote viewing/control - (is that an option?) We'd use it on trips, for backing up and viewing photos, so does that mean I should go with one that has a memory card slot?

Do people prefer Android, Apple or Windows in cases like this? which has the best tablet apps for pp?

Tablets with Wacom styluses are intriguing, but how much better are they for writing and pp than capacitive styluses?

Our main computer runs Windows, if that means anything. Budget is up to about 500. Thanks for any help you can give to get me off the fence!

I just got back from a vacation. I took my Dell Venue Pro 8 and was able to light process some pics while I was in Southeast Asia and here are some. Overall I'm happy with my tablet, the only drawback is that when the tablet is inactive for a long time (maybe like a day) it will sometimes lose it's wi-fi connection and could not find the network adapter. When this happens, I have to restart the system and it would work.

Good luck with whatever decision you make.

Cheers,

José
