The future of tablets

Posted Mar 30, 2012 at 4:43 am in Threads > Opinions

A lot of people still question the need for and or usefulness of tablets today, whether it’s Android or an iPad, and even I have thought “eh, I don’t care for them unless it’s for movie or gaming consumption” but I got a little open minded reminder and realize that tablets just might change how we operate, case in point: school, imagine never carrying around giant text books and folders filled with notes upon notes, and all your have is your tablet in hand with every single thing you need all in one place.

It would be a grand idea if tablet makers start targeting school kids and college students more, I can see tablets replacing reading and note taking books in the near future, and I say why not, it’s more resourceful and more convenient to have a tablet to carry around all your books and files so you won’t be surrounded by paper and losing everything because you misplaced it somewhere.

I take a shot at Apple every chance I get, but their buying of text book app just might be the best idea and probably the most obvious one. I see our future having tablets in every classroom around the world instead of (text)books, soon enough I can see more novels being released via tablets instead of ink and paper. And with everything being synchronized with the cloud, even if you some how damage or lose your tablet you’ll still have your work at hand.

With that being said, though the dawn of tablets is fairly still early, I am now a believer that it will end up changing our daily lives.
