Tablets that are easy to set up as of 2015 include the AARP RealPad, the iPad and the Kindle Fire, according to reviews by Assisted Living Today and the AARP. These tablets are simple to operate and offer convenient access to technical support.
The AARP offers the RealPad, the only tablet designed for senior citizens. Created with less tech-savvy users specifically in mind, the tablet offers an extremely simple setup process that walks users through all major steps. A host of tutorial videos indicate how to set up Wi-Fi, connect to email, log on to social media sites and use common programs, such as Skype. The RealPad also offers 24-hour technical support that’s easily accessible via an on-screen icon.
Apple’s iPad is both one of the most popular tablets available and one of the easiest to use. Combining the company’s trademark design innovation with a host of useful features, the device is also very easy to set up right out of the box, states Assisted Living Today. Most features of the iPad are extremely intuitive, and its iTunes store and App Store are both easy to navigate.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire offers a host of powerful features, including one of the best e-readers on the market. The device also offers an extremely useful help icon on its home screen. Using the MayDay icon, users can immediately connect to live video chat with an Amazon technical support adviser. Amazon Tech Support operators can even take control of the tablet remotely if users give them permission.
