Why should I insure my Tablet?

Whether you use a tablet to shop online from the comfort of your home or keep yourself entertained on the move, it will probably be one of the most important gadgets in your collection. And from Apple's relatively expensive iPad models to the more affordable Nexus family from Google, you may decide that tablet insurance with gadgetbuddy.com will provide some peace of mind. This is because all sorts of mishaps can compromise your tablet, with accidental damage, loss and theft all having the potential to leave you without access to your favourite portable device. If you have the right cover, you can make a claim and get help with repair or replacement. And having a separate gadget insurance policy for your tablet means you will not have to resort to contacting your home insurance provider, which could lead to premium price increases.
