Surely, everyone is wanting to have a ipad with them, right?... as it is very handy, portable and highly efficient which includes all the features of education, entertainment and business needs. Even many governments have come forward to provide their students with ipads free of cost. But my wish is, do we have any luck such that the price of the tablets will be lowered, as competition grows, so even an economically average person could be able to afford an iPad or similar device.

Tablet PCs are especially great for students, or in a classroom situation. They are also great in meetings. You can quickly write notes and then organize and search your notes later. You can even include audio files, or presentations with your notes..

I also have similar concern. New tools and equipments are good to solve modern problems. But solving problem and learning skills are more important  and not the tools or equipments themselves. Also, sometime teacher and students gives much more stress on these devices and actual learning becomes secondary. That may not be good sign and students looses edge in this competative world.

Most organizations, schools and homes will employ it. But does it have any other bad side effects?

@_hm, very valid point. I guess technology will change the way students learn. For example students will become experts in typing but they will forget how to write. Writing using pen/pencil will become thing of past. No doubts kids will get new ways to learn new things but needs to be seen how this new technolgoy will impact their personality.

Many school districts and even a few countries are offering students free tablets and replacing textbooks with iPads from Apple,

Developing nations like India, which cannot afford to distribute iPad has developed its own tablet called "Aakash". Aakash is already being distributed to college students for 35$. Though this tablet may not compete with Apple/Samsung but it will definitely  erase digital divide between the rich and the poor.

@_hm.There is nothing good that cannot be abused though,It might take years for us to see the negative side effect of it, especially in the moral aspect.But then that is never a reason not to accept the technology.

@Dave, I,m not surprised at the report you gave.Ipad is kind of more convenient to carry and handle around academic environment when compared to laptops and not to talk of desktop.

Also I feel Apple is smart enought to target the younger generation because they are likely to quickly adjust to the new innovation(s) than some that have gone so deep in the "old technology" so to say and trying to blend with the new technology.

@Susan.I agree with you that Tablet and PC are two different devices,my stand still remains that there is going to be decrease in PC users because major users are not even programmers that can,t do without PC, they are people that just want to check mail, do some online transactions and stuffs like that.

So we are looking at a time when PC will lose complete relevancy to common or light users and this set of people carries the larger percentage use of both devices.
