The acceptance of tablet computing
Consumer tablets are out selling laptops while new form factors and features are continually being introduced. While consumers continue to be a significant purchaser of these devices for reading eBooks, watching videos, playing games and web surfing, these devices are also becoming common place in workplace. To understand why tablets enjoy such great acceptance we need to look at what makes them different from other computer form factors. First and foremost, their bright, large color displays make them ideally suited for displaying visual content (pictures, videos, large amounts of text). Additionally, they intentionally lack large storage capabilities, keyboards and other space requiring features, thus they can be contained in a small, lightweight package that is easy to take on the go. In short their success is largely due to the fact they filled a niche many of us did not know existed.
