A tablet for someone looking for an easy-to-use option is Apple's iPad Mini. Apple's mobile operating system, iOS, is aimed at giving users a feature-rich experience without having to be tech-savvy or customize the device's settings. Its small screen size also makes it easier to type on.
If you have a particular aversion to Apple products, Amazon's Kindle Fire HD is a more affordable choice. The Fire HD comes in a 6", 7" and 8.9" screen size, with each increase raising the price slightly. Rather than using Apple's iOS, the Kindle Fire HD uses a customized-for-Kindle version of the Android operating system that are found on most cell phones that aren't iPhones or Windows phones.
