I have been looking for a cheap affordable tablet for quite sometime now. But one of the problems have been that, I don’t have a good enough reason for possessing a tablet pc. I am just wondering, who actually needs a tablet!
I have a desktop at home with Win7 and 2gb RAM, and of course an external HDD of 1Tb. That desktop is connected to a HP All-In-One [printer/scanner/copier/fax]. I also have a HP laptop which gives me the mobility that I desired. So, I am no longer attached to the desktop, unless I need to use the All-In-One.
I have a smartphone, Nokia E71, in which I have configured all mailboxes and other Symbian apps for social networking. I have an Apple iPod 16gb for all the songs. So, why do I need a tablet?
I tried answering the question myself and here are a few good reasons:
a. the tablet can work as an e-book reader, since I cannot walk around with my laptop
b. watch movies which I wouldn’t watch with family and friends
c. have an android/touch-screen experience
d. play games which require g-sensor
e. play songs in a player that has external speaker
f. for vanity, since I have all else
But are these reasons good enough? I don’t really know. So, who really needs a tablet? These guys:
a. who don’t have a desktop or a laptop
b. who don’t have a mp3 player
c. who don’t have a GPS device
d. who wants one tool which can do everything that entertains, be it playing games or songs or movies or surfing the web or reading e-book.
Just about everything can be done on a tablet. Hope, I will be able to convince myself of the need for a tablet pc !
