Hello First of all I hope I'm asking this question on the right Helproom? Anyway here goes...I would like to purchase a budget price Tablet around £70-100. I only really want it for transporting Word documents with me which I need for reference when I'm studying. I have read so much information on these gizmos that my head is bursting. Can someone explain please, can you load Word document onto them and can you edit such documents? And would a 7" screen be adequate?

Thanks

Yes, you can view Word documents onto Android powered gizmos but you need additional software which comes in two forms one of which is free. There is a bit more information on the Android website.

Whether you would find a 7" screen adequate I don't know, I would find it small, but then I'm retired!!! The only way to find out for you is to try it - ask in the store it's cheapest.

As for being in the right forum, again yes.

johndrew Thanks for the advice especially regarding the additional software. I'll have a look on the website you mentioned and I guess my next move is to take a trip to the shops!!
