quote: Huh? I doesn't matter what it runs. A tablet is not a business computer.
quote: Employees get a bottom-dollar cheapo PC on their desk.
quote: Cheapo PC cannot be replaced by a tablet, because nobody wants to work on a tiny screen all day. They need a full sized monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
quote: Cheapo PC cannot be supplemented by the tablet because it's too expensive and doesn't add value, doesn't improve productivity.
quote: The only folks who may be able to use such a device are traveling sales men, and executives. That's a niche market, at best.
quote: Windows tablet is an answer to a question nobody asked.
quote: The only things limiting a tablet these days are software availability and high-end horsepower.
quote: Planning, purchasing, inbound logistics, warehousing, shop floor, shipping, accounting, reverse logistics, CRM software etc etc
quote: Some tablets support docking stations, some have wireless peripherals, and others have built-in ports for HDMI, USB and removable memory cards. The point behind tablets is that you can unplug them from those devices when they aren't needed.
quote: I see tablets and laptops merging at some point in the future. Tablets will be laptops without a keyboard. I'm not sure if the problem is that I'm not explaining myself well, or if I'm just talking to a bunch of Archers who don't get core concepts.
