Re: RCA has a tablet that receives OTA TV

I'll stick with my iPad and iPad mini.

RCA electronics are absolutely junk. We got our first color TV in 1992 and it lasted a year. It had to go for repairs so they could not fix it so they authorized a warranty replacement. The second one lasted another 2 years and it needed repairs along the way. So 2 RCA TVs lasted at total of three years before the last one ended up on the curb on trash day. We bought a Samsung 20" color TV and that lasted from 1995 to 2001. The Sony color TV that I bought in 2001 to replace the Samsung still works today. It is in my basement and used for watching the weather channel during tornado warnings. I also use it for Music Choice when doing work in the basement.

I have a 1st Gen iPad, tracked it from the slow boat from China (not kidding!) and I love it. The battery life after my constant use is still fantastic, and don't know how I ever survived without it.

My daughter got her first contract and an iPhone earlier this week. She has a 2nd Gen iPad but has fallen in love with the phone. If there's a plus for me -- other than shifting her off our contract -- it's that we can use iMessage rather than texting with dumb phones. I'll keep my dumbphone and cheap contract as long as I can, but texting is the absolute pits with it.

I'll second that emotion.

Not sure whether it was Base 2 (printers), Packard Bell, Yugo, Government Motors, Haier or Coby that inspires them, but for the past decade, everything RCA is just patently awful. They give "junk" a bad name.

I’m sorry to hear that. You do realize there are much better products out there other than that stuff with a shiny fruit on the back, right? I hope you remember to say thank you to RIM for that in your bedtime prayers. iMessage was a direct rip-off of Blackberry Messenger. Just one of Apples many so called ‘innovations’ that they stole from other companies, since they can’t innovate for themselves.

So tell me, why is exactly is the iPhone so great?
