What type of features are you meaning, Wale, when mentioning "That differentiation might make future tablet PCs have better workable features"?

@Barbra: Is it possible to know model for tablet and PC? If tablet is Android, does it have speech recognition? Will this help you?

PC/Laptiop and tablet have different usage. Tablet is light to carry, battery lasts 10 hours, you can easily use while in bad, moves with you easily in home and works as internet radio/TV.

However, I agree - tocuh screen features are not attractive for hardcore work and good keyboard is very essential.

 Kayode, I agree mobile devices are more trendy, portable and simply usable on the go. These I think supports consumers' desire to own a tablet over traditional PC in spite of touch screens' shortcomings.

Thanks Barbara for this post, God bless you. I am very sure this going to be an interesting OEM product to debate upon here at EBN.

@anandvy,

You are right, I not sure any tablet user will not agree with the fact that typing on touchscreen is not that easy but then, probably that is where technology is today and everybody love to be on top of it.I started a board along this asking what would be the next technology after touchscreen, probably voice command or something else.

@Barbara, I also have a tablet whereby I am cojoined. Last week I previewed a Google dedicated laptop for $199.00. The user is confined to all Google Webapps for the office suites etc, but the demo was very impressive and the PC would serve a huge contingent of the population who are not power users. It is not a tablet, and not quite a free standing laptop but it is something in the middle and may succeed as many people already subscribe to Google for mail and document management. I don't understand Windows 8 unless you are willing to dump your old non-touchscreen monitor and start learning another skill set while stil trying to remain at the same productivity level. I contend that unless MS can prove that Windows 8 actually improves productivity, many companies will decline to adopt it for some time to come.

@anadvy: I feel like such a Luddite, but touchscreens are driving me crazy. The one thing I haven't tested yet is the Sueface, whihc has a keyboard attachment. That might be a bridge folks like us need.

It takes me three or four times as long to type anything onto tiny tablet touchscreens and typos run rampant.

@Barbara, I totally agree with your observation. Its pretty hard to type on touchscreen and that is the reason I dont like tablets. I feel its better to buy ultrabook which can bet converted into a tablet rather than buying the tablet directly.
