What Is a Tablet For?

Here at the Mobile Phones site we are always responding to the question that readers leave in the comments. The last one was questioned about the usefulness of a tablet and is a very interesting question, given the huge amount of functions of a mobile phone, why do we still need a tablet?

What Is a Tablet For?

For starters, what is a tablet ? Tablets are portable computers that use mobile phone operating systems, more focused on portability and low battery consumption. It has advantages of a notebook, such as large screen and typing ease and advantages of a mobile phone, since some connect to mobile phone networks. It has a camera, wireless internet and thousands of apps to do everything imaginable, both work and fun.

Can the tablet be used for work? It depends on the job. If your job requires mainly reading e-mails, viewing videos and presentations the tablet might be a good idea. Now, if you need to type too much or produce the presentations and any content, the tablet may not be the best option. There are those who get used to typing on the keyboard of the tablet but undoubtedly it is not something ergonomic and should be used moderately.

What tablet does best?

  • Reading: The battery lasts a lot and you read for hours. Books, PDF’s, feed ( what’s a feed ?) Manuals, recipes, anything you imagine.
  • Surf the internet: Reading is included here too, but you can access just about anything on the internet from a tablet. Blogs, video sites, search and respond to your emails.
  • Photos and video: In addition to videos you can watch online, you can watch movies on your tablet , photos you’ve taken, or even online albums that have been shared with you!
  • Programs for everything: There are thousands of apps ( what an app ?) For tablets, be it an iPad or any Android tablet.

In summary, a tablet just is not very suitable for the mass production of content. If you spend all day writing it is best to do this on a desktop or even a notebook.

The biggest advantage of using a tablet is consuming content , which is done in a much more interesting way on the big screens, common point in the main tablets of the market!
