What is good about Tablets

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

The sec­ond most por­ta­ble of the three cat­e­gories is the tablet. Al­though heav­ier than the smart­phones, tablets weight less than half the size of the ul­tra­books.

Tablets are the per­fect travel com­pan­ion as they can eas­ily slide into any bag with­out con­sum­ing much space. They can be eas­ily held in the hand for long du­ra­tions and can be used while stand­ing as well.

Widely avail­able in 7 and 10 inch dis­plays, tablets are per­sonal and flex­i­ble to use. These can be used for brows­ing the web, ac­cess­ing emails and even read­ing books and news­pa­per. One can eas­ily watch HD videos over the big high res­o­lu­tion dis­plays, some­thing the Ul­tra­books still lack.

The touch in­ter­face of­fers great gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence too. Tablets are even good at tak­ing notes, show­ing demos, adding an­no­ta­tions to the im­ages, etc. Tablets get ac­cess to a wide va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions that en­hances their en­ter­tain­ment and pro­duc­tiv­ity ex­pe­ri­ence. There are apps that can be used for call­ing and mes­sag­ing, with­out much fuss. With the in­creas­ing megapixel count and bet­ter op­tics, tablets can be used as cam­eras as well.

With bat­tery be­ing one of the big­gest driv­ing forces for any gad­get, tablets do of­fer a good bat­tery backup. These can last for any­time be­tween six to ten hours on con­tin­u­ous us­age.

Lastly, tablets aren’t priced ex­or­bi­tantly. Con­sid­er­ing, the best tablet avail­able in the mar­ket, the new iPad has a start­ing price of around 30,000. To­day, we don’t even get the best smart­phone for less than 35,000. As for Ul­tra­books, we can’t even dream of own­ing them at this price.
