iPad or (OTHER) Tablet for Mobile Website Development?
Hey guys and gals,
I don't own a tablet or iPad but am thinking about getting one (or the other) so i can test mobile website layouts. my concern isn't really developing aps for either device (at least not at the moment) and would just want to test the layout to make sure the sites look nice on these types of devices.
What are your thoughts? I know with iPhones they work a bit differently and sometimes display differently than an android phone... are the iPad/android tablets the same in this regard?
Actually, I find the iPad emulator to be superior to iPads in some scenarios. Easier to copy / paste, easier to get onto the right network if that matters.
Render-wise it seems quite accurate, what it doesn't do is let you know when some feature of your web ui really doesn't work with a touch interface -- the mouse is still vastly more accurate than a fingertip.
