After a week of travel and several presentation, my PlayBook has performed admirably. It connected to WiFi hot spots (including my iPhone) like a champ. The web browser has rendered every site I pointed it at. I also watched at least a half dozen legally ripped TV shows (Mad Men season 2). As a portable media device, the PB is a contender.
Now I am back in the office. I struggle to find a compelling reason to use a tablet of any kind at my desk where I have 2 full size monitors and a real keyboard, For meetings, I have MacBook Air that also trumps most tablet functions. I get the feeling that many people who are carrying tablets to meetings today will revert to notebook computers in the near future.
Proof? This posting took 50% longer to type versus my notebook. That's faster than my phone but really too slow for work. This creates an interesting paradox. The business market for tablets is wide open. But how big is it? Meanwhile, the consumer market is bigger than any of us expected.
