We all know about phone manners and mobile phone etiquette. Similarly, there is a need to learn the tablet etiquette too. Tablets seem to be a breed that fall in between a mobile phone and a laptop. Here are a few tips for using your tablet in more polite manner.

         

It has been less than two years that Apple released its iPad tablet. Soon after that, many other brands came up with similar kind of gadgets. Today, the market is brimming with tablet PCs and different versions of iPads. Hence, owning an iPad and feeling special, has become outdated. These days, wherever you go, it is a common sight to see many people tapping their iPads and tablets.

We all know about phone manners and mobile phone etiquette. Similarly, there is a need to learn the tablet etiquette too. Tablets seem to be a breed that fall in between a mobile phone and a laptop. Here are a few tips for using your tablet in more polite manner. It is not at all a bad thing to show off your iPad or other brands of tablets but follow these simple tips to maintain good conduct, at least in public.

Handling Curiosity

Many buy a tablet PC to show off. Let us admit it openly. You like the attention, stares and admiration when people see you busily tapping the iPad. These days, the iPad has become more common but the non-Apple tablets are still arousing curiosity. You will find one or two raised eyebrows if you own one such non-Apple tablet. Hence, be polite and answer if some tech enthusiasts or teens come to you, with queries about your new gizmo.

Manage your Browsing History on the Tablet

Of course, it is your tablet and you have full rights to browse, download and use it. However, it is not a bad idea to clear your internet browsing history, cache and cookies regularly. You may have some personal emails, images and other information, stored in your tablet. Yet, if your friends or colleagues use your tablet, you may want to be safe from any embarrassing situations. So, be careful about maintaining your privacy on your tablet.

Using Tablet PC at Movies or Theatre

Just like mobile phones, it is good manners to turn off your tablet PC while you are at a Cinema hall or a theatre. Brightly glowing tablets may not get very happy stares from people sitting next to you at the movies.

Sometimes, using your tablet at office meetings may find disapproval from seniors or colleagues. Of course, you can use it for your presentations but if you are chatting, browsing the net or playing a game in the middle of a serious discussion, you may give a wrong impression to the team. Finally, avoid using the tablet PCs in front of your toddlers. Instead, read them a book or engage them in other toys and games. They still have time to grow up for using technology. The radiation from tablet PCs, laptops and computers, may not be very good for your toddler.
