A tablet’s size can range from 6 inches to 8 inches. The thickness is always very less. As it is very thin, it’s easier for you to carry it around. Every tablet can easily fit in your pocket and you can comfortably use them when needed. You will not need any extra devices for the functioning of your tablet. All the required accessories are built-in. You can use the tablet with the virtual mouse and keypad. The screen is touch sensitive – it acts according to the movements you make with your hands. The screen area is much larger when compared to that of a normal mobile phone’s.

A size between 6 and 8 inches is considered ideal, because it’s the best size in which reading and carrying becomes easiest.
