From the first smartphones, I've always been an Android user, and have never owned a iOS based device. Every time I find myself trying to operate some function with someone's iPhone, it isn't pretty.
That said, for the first time, I need an iPad, and when I search for them on eBay, I have no idea what I'm looking at, and don't understand why the prices range so widely. I'd prefer a used device for no other reason than the value over new.
I own a small commercial drone services business with 3 aircraft in the fleet. The vast majority of the work conducted with drones require the use of a mobile device application. Most app developers offer both iOS and Android versions, with a few choosing to use iOS. However, in nearly every drone app I use, the iOS version of these Android apps are far more stable and feature-rich.
Here's the requirements:
- 7"+ iOS tablet
- WiFi Only, no cellular capabilities
- Processing Power and RAM to ensure minimal risk of crashing when running drone ground control and mapping apps
- $150 or less
