Does Your Tablet Have A Data Connection? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you what your favorite music streaming service is. Although we could not include every existing service, we’d listed all the bigger ones, and out of the 10 options we gave you, 3 services won by a pretty large margin! So who won?

414 readers voted in this poll. In third place, with 19.5% of the votes, is Pandora. In second place, with 20% of the votes (and only one vote more), is Spotify, and the big winner, and your favorite music streaming service, is Grooveshark, with 23% of the votes.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Every music service mentioned got at least one vote, and a full 11% of the voters chose “Other”. Some of the services mentioned in the comments were 8tracks, MOG, Bandcamp and Noisetrade. That’s a lot of different music services being used by MakeUseOf readers!

This week’s poll question is: Does Your Tablet Have A Data Connection?

Tablets are getting more and more popular, and the more popular they get, the more unclear it becomes which device they really need to replace. Are they to be used more like a laptop, and connect to the Internet only where there is Wi-Fi available, or should they have Internet no matter where we are, courtesy of a paid data plan?

Most people already pay for data on their phone, and paying for another device may seem superfluous, especially considering the fact that 3G tablets cost more to begin with. On the other hand, if you already own a tablet, why not use it everywhere?

If you chose to have a data connection, why do you think it’s necessary? If you chose Wi-Fi only, what made you give up data? Is it the extra cost, or is it simply unnecessary? Tell us what you think in the comments!
