Tablets with SIM card: advantages and disadvantages

Tablet computers, or "tablets" - one of the most popular trends of the current year. A slim and light portable touch screen PC can be used almost anywhere. With it, they read books, watch videos, hold meetings, work with office applications, and even (with a 3g-module or Wi-Fi) go online. Tablets with a SIM card are now presented in a very wide range, and there are plenty to choose from. But not always the choice of a gadget with this function is justified. Consider all the pros and cons of such a solution.

Tablets with SIM card: advantages

These devices have a built-in special 3g-module, designed to enter the network using a mobile operator. Therefore, often such tablets with a SIM card in our time are called Internet tablets. It is for access to the World Wide Web that they were created. The output to the network using tablets can be made using one of two technologies: Wi-Fi or 3g. In modern models, there can be both one and both of these functions. In any metropolis it is now very easy to find an access point distributing reliable and habitual Wi-Fi. But if you often have to go out of town or spend time on business trips, you can not do without 3g. Thus, tablets with a SIM card in terms of universality of connection to the Internet certainly win. Wherever a person is, he will always be in touch. In order to get a cheap Internet for the tablet, you can purchase a separate SIM card of the CDMA-operator. As you know, this communication technology is much cheaper. Those who are interested in absolute availability and mobility, manufacturers offer tablets for two SIM cards. One of them can be used to access the network, and the other one for calls and SMS sending. As we see, in the plan of choosing aypad, there is no need to complain to a potential buyer.

Tablets with SIM card: disadvantages

There are only two minuses of such devices, but for some potential users, they can outweigh all of the above advantages. The first is, of course, the price. Overpay a decent amount for 3g is not very desirable, especially if you plan to use a tablet in an apartment, which already has a router. The second point is that most of the built-in modems work on the network only those operators that support the UMTC standard. And this significantly reduces the coverage area. For example, now in Ukraine the only owner of a license for this standard is Trimob, a mobile unit of Ukrtelecom.


Users who want to always have access to the network, but do not want to put up with these shortcomings, can use the following trade-off options:

  1. Buy an additional 3g-USB-modem of any operator you like and choose the tariff plan that suits you most.
  2. Use a portable Wi-Fi modem.
  3. Configure access to the network on your smartphone and use the wireless Internet via Wi-Fi on the tablet.

As you can see, everything depends on the specific conditions for using the gadget. In any case, the availability of different options and the development of technology can not but please any person who wants to keep pace with the times.
