Computer Tablets For More Than Play

Computer Tablets For More Than Play

So you are thinking about buying a tablet, but are unsure of what you are going to do with it. That is not an uncommon question for people looking to buy one of these trendy gadgets. The early adopters all have them and are telling you that they are the greatest thing to hit the home computer market since the internal modem, but what are you really going to do with this device?  To be blunt, if you are looking for your tablet to replace your computer or to use it as a substitute to buying a laptop, you are going to be disappointed. Tablets just cannot fill that gap at this time. However, that doesn’t mean they are useless, either. Here are some of the benefits I have found to work with my tablet.


I do a lot of reading online. Whether it is surfing the net, learning from a technical manual, or just enjoying a book, the tablet is very convenient. Why? Because it takes up hardly any room and I can have several books with me at once. The books are not tied into the internet, either, so it doesn’t matter where you are or if you have Wi-Fi access or not. If you are connected to the internet and need a piece of reading material right then, it is an easy download to get the novel into your library.


I really don’t have a problem with typing on my iPad. Some people do. It would really be up to you. When I need to type up a quick email, take some notes, or write something, the tablet is a good choice for me. Why? The tablet boots up instantaneously. There is no waiting like you might have with a laptop or a desktop. It’s ready to go when you are and the software available for you to use is either no cost or very inexpensive by comparison with a more traditional computer.



I bring my tablet to every meeting. It’s lightweight and convenient. Also, I can reference information during the meeting and I am not required to stare over the top of my laptop. This makes for a much more personal experience with the people I am talking to. Sometimes this makes the difference between a successful meeting and a failure.



The tablet is instinctively a multimedia device. You can watch videos, listen to music, and show presentations on a tablet. While entertainment is a personal favorite of mine, I find that being able to connect my tablet to television, projector, or large monitor is convenient when delivering a Powerpoint presentation to clients or work associates.



Because the use of applications is so accessible, here is just a list of some of the business uses I have with my tablet. I can easily do any of the following: email, appointment calendar (with notifications), printing, document scanning, contact management, remote access to my desktop computer, video conferencing, and social media. With all of this available to me, the tablet has become a vital part of my business tools.
