The desire to be mobile with our digital technology has revolutionized devices in countless ways. It’s given us the need for life-proof phone cases, stronger electronic signals, and GPS’s in our phones. It’s changed the way developers think when they design new apps and products. It’s inspired people to come up with new ways of making our devices more durable, longer-lasting, and efficient. Mobility requirements have taken ahold of our technological landscape.

or tablets and other hand-held devices specifically, there are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing one with the intent of being able to game on and handle it outside. Let’s take a look at some of these.

The Hardware

When it comes to digital and electronic device recreation, the majority of people enjoy spending their time engrossed in virtual entertainment indoors. But don’t think you’re a part of an abnormal crowd if you prefer otherwise; sometimes, a comfortable chair, a nice back porch, and the setting sun are all you need to create the perfect atmosphere for a round of tablet bingo on a site on or Bejeweled.  So what exactly should your tablet incorporate for the most optimal outdoor experiences? What accessories should you buy?

A 3G or 4G Connection

It doesn’t necessarily matter which one your tablet has, but you need to have one, and 4G is certainly faster. The differences between the two connectivity bands are explained further in an article published by PC Mag.

Screen Size and Brightness

Size is generally something dictated by preference. Whether you want a seven-to-eight inch screen or a ten-inch screen is up to you and your eyesight. But larger screens mean more to look at, a big plus if you intend to spending the night on Lucky Cow.

Brightness is as important, if not more important than size. If your screen can’t get bright then you won’t be able to see it in direct sunlight. Equally if your screen reflects the light too much it will be like a mirror when you are outside in bright conditions; great for doing your hair but not much good for playing bingo.

Battery Life

Finally, you’re going to want a tablet that’s power-efficient. You’re going to need to get several hours of intense CPU activity out of a single charge. A great accessory to purchase for this is a power bank, or, quite literally, a portable charger.

These are the absolute essentials; the icing on the cake comes next. Usually, it’s a good idea to purchase a nice pair of earbuds or headphones, Bluetooth or wired, or a portable speaker, so you can drown-out ambient noise and have no trouble hearing what your tablet wants you to hear. A nice, rugged case is a must, also; most tablets today aren’t designed to withstand the outdoors particularly well, so you’ll need one if you intend to keep your outdoor gaming habit going.
