Fashion takes us and brings us and in technology it was not going to be less. First were the netbook, now the Tablets. Each manufacturer has endeavored to produce at least one model of these pots so as not to be left behind and even at this point, I have not found any use for it or iPad with iOS, nor to Nexus 10 de Google with Android.
It may be that this type of tareco is focused on a type of user who is not like me. What would you use a tablet for? Watch videos, listen to music, have a video conference with someone? I see it unnecessary to carry a device like that for something so unproductive.
First, because they are uncomfortable to use: You have to carry it in your hand, at eye level and at an angle with which you can possibly catch a torticollis, because if you put it on your legs, the pain in the neck does not take them away a Chinese doctor.
Second, because in my country, given the current conditions, it is not possible to walk anywhere connected to a Wi-Fi, so 96% of the applications that include these gadgets, do not work for me. To top it off, it's rare to see them with an RJ-45 port.
Now it turns out that Netbooks are declining in front of Tablets. Ok a netbook it's a bit heavier, but at least I can do a lot more things online or offline, and not only that, they usually have a lot more storage space and more powerful hardware.
Although the trend in web design is changing, and sites are increasingly adaptable, there is still a large% of them that are not suitable to be seen on these artifacts (tablets).
Therefore, for me they are all disadvantages. It is not possible to work well in detail with design programs, and I imagine that programming with that touch keyboard is a nuisance, then ... What is a tablet good for? Please, if someone can tell me, I'm delighted .. 🙂
