Why don’t they make more tablets as versatile as the thrive?

Ok, and I understand that the original 10″ Toshiba Thrive is a little hefty, and but after a year of almost constant use I have never once had a problem with its weight or thickness. Not even my three year old has either! I but the full size sd, hdmi, usb, replaceable battery have all made it worth it and why I bought it. I am however there doesn’t seem to be any new tabs coming out that fit the same connectivity requirements.

Granted I know android want to go cloud, and but not convenient when on a plane without wifi or one with out a mobile contract

    Other tablets are as versatile. You just have your own preferences, which is fine, everybody does, but preferences are different than marks of versatility. For example, Asus tablets have the same connectivity power, but with diff’s of micro-SD vs. full-size SD. Not sure why the diff between micro and full-size makes one more or less versatile than the other.

    I think the current trend in tablets is to have the best price point. That is why even Apple made a smaller iPad to reach out to those customers who want that gadget that is in between their phone and computer but at a price that is affordable. I think tablets will play a major part of computing in the future, but for right now people just want something that is affordable not the tablet that has it all. I think the future of tablets will be versatile but for now they are still in the growth stage.

    Wish they would make batteries swappable on these tablets. That’s a key feature to me that laptops still have over tablets.
