    Can you tell me the main differences between the Samsung Galaxy View and the HP Slate 17? I am buying one for my son who is disabled. He would use it to watch videos and maybe play very simple games (the kind for babies where they touch the screen and colors and sounds “explode”). He cannot speak or communicate so I ruled out the Asus Flip 2 in 1 15.6 because of the twisted nematic display..he wouldn’t be able to tell me if he couldn’t see the screen at a particular angle. The Samsung is 200 dollars more than the HP, but I am willing to pay the extra if the Samsung would be a better choice for him. Thanks for any thoughts!

      Thank you Linda for your comment. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy View does look like a better choice given its size. If you do not need to move it around or take it with you during travels, then we would recommend the Galaxy View. It has a grip handle built into the stand to make it easier to carry around at home. While you can remove this, there is still a slight bulge on the back.

      The HP Slate 17 with its fold-flat kick stand is better for travelling and unlike the Galaxy View, has a slimmer profile which makes it easier to fit in a travel case if need be.

      Both tablets run Android so they are not hugely different, just little customizations and skins by the manufacturers.

      One thing to note though is that the Samsung Galaxy View is a device focused on entertainment; with its home screen set to access TV channels and streaming video services. You can still access the standard Android home screen by swiping sideways to access install apps among other things which can be a plus.

    For professional tablets, it is going as big as 55 inch now, I think 32 inch will be ideal for desktop interactive monitor or digital signage and 32 inch above ones will be a good fit in public display. Android commercial tablet will be a disruptive innovation to the previous entrenched Windows Totem, it is more and more affordable and available.
