Those Who Still Believe Tablets Are The “In” Thing Will Be Disappointed
You touched your desktop PC for the first time and believed nothing could compare to this technological marvel ever again. But eventually, you were caught gasping at the prospect of a wireless computer – the laptop. You remained loyal to your PCs for decades… until you saw the arrival of the tablet. And that’s exactly when every PC manufacturing company went into jeopardy.
This “slice” of a computer, integrating features of the hip iPhones like touchscreen and cameras into a portable PC, took the world by a storm. The first generation tablet was the iPad, which not only amazed you with its facilities to connect to the Internet, use word editing tools, play games from the App Store, but elevated your status among your peers.
Selling like hotcakes, soon you could see Grandma holding a tablet while talking to her grandson in another country through Skype. While many claim this technology as a worldwide phenomenon, the companies whose PCs were being shoved into the attic were not generally pleased with the outcome. Yet, they did not give up and continued giving us refined Macs and Windows.
However, not surprisingly enough, the tablet sales have begun to decline recently while PCs are up on a rise again. How did this abnormality come about? The CEO of Best Buy has been exclusive about noticing this trend in the sales this year.
While tablets enjoyed their glory, the developers of PCs sought out to furnish the processing power and memory. Meanwhile, the tablets only saw upgrades in their sizes and screen resolution. With Windows XP becoming obsolete, many businesses have raised demands for upgraded PCs, as this also led to hackers attacking an unattended feast in the form of PCs still installed with Windows XP.
However, for people who think the revival of PCs is a step back in time, there is possibility of resurrecting the rapidly dying tablets – through super tablets.
Super tablets are tablets but with the hardware capabilities of the PC, like a wide screen, physical keyboard, 64-bit processor and so on. Many companies like Oracle and Microsoft have failed at achieving the right balance between a PC and tablet. However, this time, 64-bit ARM chips combined with the great development potential in iOS and Android has allowed for the invention of such a tablet.
If you are scoffing at the idea of super tablets, you are probably wrong. While tablets have been a play toy for every aged user, super tablets are going to achieve more than entertainment – by being favored in businesses. If the ex-CIO at CBS Interactive can claim on wanting to buy the company super tablets instead of PCs, then many others will be rising to the claim too.
The cost of buying PCs is just abysmal, along with the cost of hiring professionals for its maintenance. Moreover, programs like Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) just go further in highlighting how trends in working places are changing as well, where the employees are now being discouraged from having to rely on the company’s machines.
Thus, having your own lightweight, super processing device containing your office inside it, is just a dream come true.
