A wall charger: Use this thing (and the USB cable) to charge the tablet. ✓ Useless pamphlets: Cheerfully avoid reading the booklets, sheets, and guides rattling around inside the box. Don’t throw them away, but don’t bother studying them, either. Go ahead and free the USB cable and wall charger from their clear plastic cocoons. I recommend keeping the box for as long as you own your Android tablet. If you ever need to return the thing, or ship it anywhere, the original box is the ideal container.

The typical Android also has a back side. It’s not shown in Figure 1-1 because the censors won’t let me do an illustration and also because the back is boring: On it you may find the tablet’s main camera and LED flash. That’s it. ✓ Some tablets lack a rear-facing camera. I can recommend to those tablet owners getting a painting program for your tablet and using it to paint the images you would otherwise photograph. ✓ Not every rear-facing camera features a flash. ✓ Some tablets use NFC, or Near Field Communications, so that you can send and receive information by touching your tablet with another NFC device.

Screen protectors: These plastic, clingy things are affixed to the front of the tablet, right over the touchscreen. They help protect the touchscreen glass from finger smudges and sneeze globs, while still allowing you to use the touchscreen. Vehicle charger: You can charge the Android tablet in your car if you buy a vehicle charger. It’s an adapter that plugs into your car’s 12-volt power supply, in the receptacle that was once known as a cigarette lighter. The vehicle charger is a must if you plan on using the Android tablet’s navigation features in your auto or when you need a charge on-the-road.
