Tablets and mobile phones

When you have a mobile phone, you don’t need anything else. Your mobile phone, just as a tablet, has massive processing power which allows it to have a good quality stream. Also, it appears quite handy due to the touch screen technology. Never the less, small size of the screen is a big disadvantage. The same thing goes to tablets. Also, you won’t be able to watch all the things you wanted like some live tv shows or events, just as you can not get all the channels.
