I noticed that many kind of tablet around, starting from Ipad and other OS tablet like android..People using and bring it everywhere and seems it has already new fashion to bring around those tablet inside their bag and read or using it at public places. This just like the beginning of new era, it has replaced netbook or laptop on many ways, people who love to be mobile will see the benefit of using tablet. However, looks like the trend will be shifted in the long run. People will always follow the trend and avoid to be the ones who left behind..Besides of fashion, I think some of the function still can be obtained by using laptop or netbook, unless there are some new features that really worth it and will make people must have this gadget.. What do you think? When we really need to buy this tablet pc?

I agree with you.. We can clearly see the shifting trend.. People are clearly more interested in buying tablets rather than netbooks and laptops.. But for me i will still prefer a Laptop because i think its much more productive and useful than a tablet. Tablets are just meant for the style statement or show-off purpose. They are just supposed to look good and attractive and are seen as a medium of entertainment. I agree that it is a lot more portable but i will prefer a smartphone over a Tablet if portability is my main concern..!! It has got almost the same functionality as that of a Tablet.

Well, you have good points. .if we feel that the laptop or netbook still fulfill our requirements then no reason to buy sophisticated table to follow latest fashion or trend..However, many sales person or entertainer may use it accordingly since they need to sale their product.. You are right, smartphone will be much better and handy..however, some of the 7 inch tablet looks good but still looks weird if we using it to make a call or receive a call.. Small smartphone with touch screen ability would be appropriate for me too…appreciate your response..

well, I think so.. sometimes we have everything we needs with our laptop already. All the tablet pc capability mostly include in our laptop..Only the style and light weight and handy is the biggest advantage.. We can read the tablet pc just like we read newspaper or magazine, this thing will be the biggest advantage for me since it can’t be done with laptop for long time..I think worth if start to save money to buy the cheapest tablet available in market, not the latest one..just wait old type price to going down..It’s no problem if we are not follow the fashion as long as we can use it accordingly..

Yeah i too am thinking of buying one of those tablets...It has become a huge hit where i live....The production cost has become extremely low that anyone can afford one of those... It is gonna become so common that mobiles are surely gonna get replaced... If you wait some more time,the price is gonna come down pretty fast due to the new companies that has entered the market recently... You can then buy one of those....

Well, that was looks amazing.. I wonder the tablet pc cost will have great reduction in near future following the market demands and the competition.. The more products available in the market then the price will going down..But some tablet pc price has reduce so much, even it model consider old but still has good capability.. Like Samsung galaxy tab 7 inch with 3G connectivity has going down to less than $400 and could be cheaper ..If we want to buy the cheaper ones, it would be acer brand..quite good and trendy model with latest android OS too…However, I still prefer to wait Ipad 2 price to drop..it will be long lasting and maybe the price will be drop right after Ipad 3 launch in the next couple of moths..

I recently bought Ipad 2 for work purposes. It's WiFi only version. I travel a lot for work & I do need something for emails & to work on line. I used to carry laptop with me & it was a hassle trying to open it & boot up everytime I tried to do something. I used to have blackberry & I've tried Iphones before for that reason. Now that I have ipad 2, I'm actually saving on monthly cell phone bills since I don't need smart phones anymore.

Previously we were having a small tape recorder ,it has a very small tape in it,now i do not even know that any one uses tapes and such manufacturing is there or not,i do not even know whether we can purchase those small tapes. As the time changes on,new things come up and the old things just get wash away.Though they give their own features and uses still the new and upgraded things take the place . There were desktops people were purchasing them with thousands of currency.Now iphone is the costliest thing to purchase.Laptop replaced the desktops .Tablets will replace and occupy the place of laptops and iphones. I would say if there is usage of such gadgets then only spend the money on it,if not better keep the money safe in the bank as we might not know how many years this tablet will be helping out us. The money we saved can be of use in the future when we really require the gadget and make use of our money as well as the resource we get from the technology upgrade.
