Why the craze of tablet computer market??

January 6, 2010

Recently, Apple Inc. announced the launch of it tablet computer in late January of this year. Sony came out with its tablet PC “Dash” and it was anticipated that Microsoft would announce a similar product at CES 2010 but they didn’t. But why all the hype about tablet computers.

What personally excites me is the elimination of barriers between me and my computer namely, keyboard, mouse and the wires if you not using wireless devices.  I would rather feel that responsive screen with my hands. I think in many ways we underestimate that sense of touch and gratification that inanimate objects can give us through that perfect response. This is what makes it an interactive experience. For example: The immediate success of iPhone was because of it touchscreen and the experience it provided to the users, everything else followed later.

You decide!!

    The reduction in barrier between your computer and you seems to be the next step toward the Web 4.0 environment. The way we interact with technology changes with the way we use information. The next decade will be exciting in this regard as long as HAL doesn’t find us. 🙂

      Computer interfaces have been stagnant for so long. Its nice to see more and more devices finally going towards touch. Voice integration has been around for a while, but has not really caught on; maybe the Nexus One’s voice integration will set the bar higher?

      I share your sentiments about breaking down the barries between the user and the device. I wonder if devices will ever integrate with thought? That would be an interesting world!

      Keep up the good blogs, Nittin!
