Ask Slashdot: Easy Wifi Enabled Tablet For My Dad

Anonymous Coward writes | about 10 months ago

An anonymous reader writes "I'm looking to pick up a Tablet for my father. He is in his 70's and the internet it a bit of a mystery to him but he asked me about a way to send/receive email and watch online videos. He is NOT interested in getting a smartphone or moving off of his cheap NO data phone plan. But he is interested in getting a Tablet and using the free wifi that is available in his building. Here is my question: Can you recommend a Tablet equivalent to those phones with the big numbers that they sell to older people? Basically what I am saying is does there exist a tablet with an interface that would be simple and easy to use for someone who has very little experience with computer GUIs?"
