I'm trying to find some sort of tablet size device that could be used by someone with the use of just one hand.

 

I don't need anything new or anywhere near state-of-the-art..actually...there will not even be an internet connection available to it.

 

Just wondering if any of these older devices might still be useful for simple gaming without requiring an internet connection.

 

Thanks

Most tablets can easily be manipulated with just one hand. Might want to prop it up at an angle in some sort of a stand though.

Yes, I suppose that's true. I guess my concern is the number of games available to use on older machines that do not require internet access to play them.

 

I'm not familiar with the various Operating Systems found on handheld and tablet devices so I'm also not familiar with the games they offer that do not require internet access to play them.

1) Most cheap tablets are running a version of the Android Operating System.

 

2) If it doesn't have some way to communicate with the outside world, (WiFi, SD, USB, etc.), I'm not sure how you might go about getting any new files or programs (games) onto it.
