AT LAST! an An­droid tablet for be­gin­ners


YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

IF YOU feel tech­nol­ogy is leav­ing you be­hind and you don’t know your iPad from your el­bow; Twit­ter is some­thing that birds do; and Face­book means look­ing at a book to read, then you are prob­a­bly one of hun­dreds of thou­sands who feel iso­lated from the out­side world, with ev­ery­one speak­ing a strange new lan­guage.

NOT be­ing a part of this new tech­nol­ogy can leave peo­ple feel­ing left be­hind and lonely; per­haps you ac­knowl­edge that you should know what to do with an an­droid tablet but not re­ally know­ing where to be­gin.

Wel­come to the 21st cen­tury

Age should not be a bar­rier to learn­ing some­thing new. And learn­ing to use an an­droid tablet could help im­prove mem­ory while at the same time bring­ing you into the twenty first cen­tury; al­low­ing you to keep in touch with fam­ily and friends near and far.

Stay­ing in touch

Tech­nol­ogy can be of great ben­e­fit to peo­ple of all ages, es­pe­cially older gen­er­a­tions as a means of keep­ing in touch or with on­line shop­ping if get­ting out of the house is be­com­ing more dif­fi­cult. Per­haps get­ting to the li­brary is no longer an op­tion, with an an­droid tablet you have a whole world of books, news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines at your fin­ger­tips.

The world at your fin­ger­tips

You can break into this new tech­nol­ogy with an An­droid Tablet from Port­fo­lio. From brows­ing the web and on­line shop­ping to keep­ing up with friends and fam­ily on Face­book, Twit­ter and Skype – the dig­i­tal world is at your fin­ger­tips with this sim­ple-to-use tablet. And we will show you what to do and how to do it.

So­cial Net­work­ing Ex­plained

Twit­ter is an on­line so­cial net­work­ing ser­vice that en­ables users to send and read short mes­sages known as ‘Tweets’. Face­book is an­other so­cial net­work­ing site that al­lows users to post pho­to­graphs and events that are hap­pen­ing in their lives to keep up with friends and fam­ily around the world. Skype al­lows you to talk to and see at the same time friends and fam­ily who also have Skype – like a tele­phone with live pic­tures.And if you order our book ‘One Step at a Time’, this will ex­plain how WiFi works and help get you con­nected so that you can ‘surf’ the great world wide web (or in­ter­net as it’s usu­ally known).

Never miss out

The Port­fo­lio Tablet lets you catch-up on your favourite TV pro­grammes through BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 (Chan­nel 4 and as­so­ci­ated chan­nels). It is pre-loaded with the fol­low­ing apps to keep you up to date and en­ter­tained:- BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All Four, De­mand 5, BBC iPlayer Ra­dio, BBC Sport, Mailon­line, Sky News; and games - Crossword, Soli­taire, Su­doko, Scrab­ble; keep in touch with loved ones through Skype and Gmail. You can down­load films and mu­sic through Play­store, and with the Amazon Kin­dle app it will trans­form the tablet into a li­brary of books for your com­plete en­joy­ment.

Take it any­where

The com­pact de­sign means you can take the Port­fo­lio Tablet with you wher­ever you go – play a game at home, read the lat­est news ‘on the go.’ And with two cam­eras – one on the front for Skype, self-pho­to­graphs (self­ies) and record­ings, and one on the back – you can take pho­to­graphs and video record­ings wher­ever you are.
