In my personal opinion I think that these new Tablets are simply a marketing scheme by the companies to generate more sales. These products do not do anything that can not be done on a computer and more importantly some don’t even offer some features that laptop computers do. I have yet to see a tablet that has a cd drive which is a very important tool for installing programs or drivers on to your computer. Also when you think in to it the Ipad is just an enlarged Iphone without the ability to be used as a phone. However these companies have seen that consumers will waste their money on these items and are now beginning to exploit this. I personally also could not and would not want to deal with a touch screen keyboard. There is absolutely no way it can be as efficient or convenient as an actual keyboard. I have tested most of these products and although you can bring about many arguments for why it is a good invention you can also bring about many reasons why it is a bad product too. Personally I would not buy an Ipad, samsung tab or any of the other brands simply due to the fact that a smart phone is a much more portable device and gives you basically every feature of the Ipad or any other tablet as well. I believe this item is just another material product that everyone wants for the cool factor. I personally see no use for them however.
