Considering a cheap android tablet. They advertise as being able to download from Google App store. Does this include all the apps I have on my phone?

I want to be able to use Kindle (which I have on my phone), and PDFs optimised for tablets – the ones with internal nav, like the latest TFL rules.

Will all Android tablets do this?

I received the Google Nexus 7 for xmas and I highly recommend it.

You can download all the same apps as the one on your Android phone, including the Kindle app. It will also sync your tablet to your phone so all contacts, etc. will be available right away on your tablet. Low starting price, too.

I just got a 7 " Lenovo Think tab just before Christmas, and I love it. I have been downloading stuff from the google store and there is also an Amazon store for android as well.

Some older apps don't play well with Tablets, but most will transfer over with little trouble.

Not all Android tablets are the same. Some of the really cheap ones do not have access to the play store but use their own alternatives. I have tried 3 Android tablets and I highly recommend the Nexus 7 for that extra price you get a far superior tablet.

If you can't afford a Nexus try one in a store before you buy or checkout the reviews on Amazon first.
