Do your parents have a tablet?  If they feel that they're too techie, complicated, and expensive then they will want to check out AARP's new tablet, the "Real Pad," that will be available starting mid-October.

The tablet features oversized texts and icons, built-in tutorials, and easy to access 24/7 tech support.  It has a 7.85-inch screen (smaller than the average tablet, but larger than a smartphone), a 2.0 megapixel front-facing and 5.0 megapixel rear-facing cameras -- and 16GB of memory!  An exclusive feature of RealPad – and one which many of us with more complex tablets wish we had available – is a “RealQuickFix” button – which monitors the tablet’s performance and allow you to diagnose and fix problems on the fly!  The retail price of $189 makes very appealing and a great gift.

You can learn more about it now by clicking here--- It's available now for pre-order or you can wait until mid-October when they'll be sold exclusively at WalMart stores.
