Tablet for Online poker?  0   
Hi, I’m thinking about buying a tablet pc, but I really would like to play online poker there. I can’t find specific information about the theme on the internet and would like to know if anyone here already tried it or know something about this and how do you classify the experience. Of course that, having such little monitor, I don’t want 8 or even 4 tables at the same time. And I also understand that the velocity of the game, if it works, can depend on the internet connection. Tell me if, in normal conditions, I can install a poker room and open a table to play a tourney or a SnG. Perhaps some tablets do and others don’t. I didn’t want to make any publicity, but if you know about some better than others, perhaps you can try to give me a hint. Perhaps the one from Jobs, without Flash, can be a difficulty to this activity… But don’t know if the others with the robot as icon are better… Thanks in advance, I still have to write Santa about this!

I was thinking on writing to Santa about the same thing but i dont know what rooms have sotware designed for those platforms. i think bwin made the "jobs" version that also works on "jobs" phone. not wanting to go back to bwin poker im not sure what else is out there, and yes, today im too lazy to google it Tongue

Tablets aren't my strong point but for sure ipad or ipad 2 is out of discussion...

From what i heard the best is the samsung tablet but this is just from reviews i've read online Smile

You can play PES2012 on a Samsung Galaxy Mobile.

So I guess you can play online poker on most tablets.

think your best option would be an ipad and them install windows on it, thats the only way i can think of , but then your defeating the option of going apple, and im not sure if you can have both o/s's on there with enough memory to run poker software successfully .....id google it and read into it

Since you want to play poker in a tablet you need to get one that has Windows as operating system.
If not all, the majority of poker softwares work on Windows ONLY.
Flash isnt the only thing you are looking to.
You need to be able to install the software first.
There are a few tablets with Windows 7. They are pretty good in general and
for what you need them too.

That is a great idea, I want to buy a iPad 2, but Apple software does not support the online poker networks, only Windows operated or Mac systems do support, so for the time being I will not buy a iPad 2, I do not want to buy another brand tablet, so I'll be waiting till Apple supports the online poker networks.

Supernoob, the ceo of windows announced that windows 8 will support classic pcs and also all tablets(except ipad of course), so i think all poker clients will work on tablets after windows 8 will be available Blink

I really do think playing poker on tables is really comfortable but not so good for multitabling...

That's some really nice info thx Super! i was about to do a bit of research on it today but as it seems u already saved me the trouble Big Smile ...

a shame there's not many softwares available. kinda puts on hold my letter to Santa till tablets get more interest from the poker companies.

I dont really find the reason why buying a tablet unless you can use it for almost everything.
(and i say almost leaving out programs or games for example which they require more sophisticated hardware)
When you buy apple or android tablets is like buying a really big mobile phone.
Pretty much a waste of money for that kind of thing.
I would ever go one step above and buy a light touchscreen laptop 11-13 " screen.
A little bit more expensive though.

This issue is really important. Lots of posts saying certain tablets dont support the sites used for poker. Perhaps the resolution lies the other way round and maybe BRM could lead the way by driving the principle that, as many customners use tablets but cant play poker on them, that the sites start to support the tablets. I know its a principle of commerce, but what a coop for a poker site to support the tablet technology and to corner the market by being the first to set up their software for all tablet users and get them all!

Wouldnt it be nice to think of which sites support tablets rather so that you can choose the tablet that you want, than be driven by whioch one supports poker sites!

Just a simple thought from a different perspective!

It's impossible, the screen resolution doesn't allow you to play multitable well. In fact, a close friend has gave me an iPad 2 as my wedding gift and I'm going to sell it because I find it useless.

I WOULDNT USE ANY TO PLAY POKER TOO DODGY

If you play like 4 tables its possible.
You may consider the fact though that by using touch screen doesnt make your game easier.
No matter what, you will need a mouse i believe, while multitabling

I just got an Ipad2, turns out apple boycots adobe, so it wont play flash. SO I wont be able to use the browser clients of different pokersites


SUCKS

If you want a tab for online poker, make sure its android based and plays flash

I saw an updated version of the Asus tablet is out and that is really hot...

And since it's not an mac powered tablet it can run all poker clients Big Smile

Check that out Blink

Buy an Android tablet with 3.0, 3.1 or 3.2 OS, that is the tablet operating system and not the regular mobile operating system (2.1 / 2.2 / 2.3). Samsung, Sony, Asus, Huawei or Packard Bell...

Hi all!!

If you´re a serious player (that means multitable) I think tablet is not good. Anyone see himself playing 15 tables in that kind of engine?

If you want to play 2 tables... ok then, sure the engine can do it.

There is many company like MSI, Asus that doing tablet pc on windows platform. Maybe you shloud watch this possibility before buy an iPad. You will be able to play the poker room you want and run the software you want on Windows based tablet pc.
iPad is excelent product but... It's Mac OS
