Best Place to Buy a Tablet and/or Smartphone

Jump to last reply

I will be flying to Hong Kong, staying three nights, then continuing on to Shanghai followed by a month on the mainland, commencing late March.

My old ASUS eeePC900 has served me well but is about to give up the ghost. I am considering replacing it with a tablet or an ASUS slider. I also need a new mobile phone.

I am open to any advice on the best tablet or phone to buy in terms of capability, usability and price; and whether there is one that is suitable for both tasks when travelling or should I carry both a tablet and a phone. I use the computer to book hotels and planes, to blog, for skype calls to home and for translation and local information. I also use it as my wife's portable movie viewer on long trips so it needs long battery life. I use the phone for emergency communications and, rarely, for photos.

The second part of my question is where is the best place to buy - Australia, Hong Kong or Shanghai? If I buy in HK or China, will I have much of a problem transferring info and programs like skype and LibreOffice from a usb chip to the new netbook?

Cheers, Alan, Australia
