The perfect tablet?

I sent this to one of the 'noids earlier this AM but then decided to get
a wider range of opinions. The bottom line is that I'm still waiting for
the perfect device to purchase for schlepping to meetings, etc, which
means I'm still using a laptop/netbook. My needs are simple. I want to
take notes and we're a Windows shop so having a compatible .docx format
is important. I'm not a huge e-reader - gives me a headache. Email, note
taking, browsing...that's about it.
I use a Droid phone so was thinking about the Xoom but it's still pretty
pricey (although they have an upgrade path to the 4GLTE when it comes
out in Q2). I had an ipad for awhile and actually gave it up as it just
didn't meet my needs.
So...other than an ipad, what are people lovin' these days?

RE: The perfect tablet?

Cyndi,

If you are looking for a very simple tablet, then call Dunder Mifflin
and talk to Jim. They have a wonderful product that never runs out of
power, never has an O/S crash, and is very easy to carry. You can even
wad it up into a ball and stuff it into your pocket or purse and it will
still be readable later. They call it paper. Of course, you will need
to purchase an accessory pack which is usually called pencils or pens.
They always get you with those overpriced accessories!

Happy Friday to everyone.

The perfect tablet?

Of course there are OS choices there too: white or yellow; lined or
unlined. Mouse choices: blue, black or red. Interface choices: Ink or
Lead. Then there are case choices: Leather, pleather, plastic, etc.
Downsides: printing is slow; copying is difficult.

RE: The perfect tablet?

I have several of these units (pen and paper) and found they have the following problems.

1. Spell check is terrible plus the font is sloppy and difficult to read

2. Mailing document is expensive and slow, often requiring 2-3 days for delivery

3. Battery life is good, but the accessory pens have been known to leak

4. Requires additional bulky accessories for cut and paste (scissors and transparent tape)

5. Cannot be accessed via the "cloud"

6. Leaves a paper trail.

Subject: [teknoids] The perfect tablet?

I sent this to one of the 'noids earlier this AM but then decided to get a wider range of opinions. The bottom line is that I'm still waiting for the perfect device to purchase for schlepping to meetings, etc, which means I'm still using a laptop/netbook. My needs are simple. I want to take notes and we're a Windows shop so having a compatible .docx format is important. I'm not a huge e-reader - gives me a headache. Email, note taking, browsing...that's about it.
I use a Droid phone so was thinking about the Xoom but it's still pretty pricey (although they have an upgrade path to the 4GLTE when it comes out in Q2). I had an ipad for awhile and actually gave it up as it just didn't meet my needs.
So...other than an ipad, what are people lovin' these days?

Why are computers so difficult? Because of errors like this:

Service X depends on service Y, which failed to start because of the
following error: The operation completed successfully.

I have several of these units (pen and paper) and found they have the
following problems.

1. Spell check is terrible plus the font is sloppy and difficult
to read

2. Mailing document is expensive and slow, often requiring 2-3
days for delivery

3. Battery life is good, but the accessory pens have been known to
leak

4. Requires additional bulky accessories for cut and paste
(scissors and transparent tape)

5. Cannot be accessed via the "cloud"

6. Leaves a paper trail.

Cyndi,

If you are looking for a very simple tablet, then call Dunder Mifflin
and talk to Jim. They have a wonderful product that never runs out of
power, never has an O/S crash, and is very easy to carry. You can even
wad it up into a ball and stuff it into your pocket or purse and it will
still be readable later. They call it paper. Of course, you will need
to purchase an accessory pack which is usually called pencils or pens.
They always get you with those overpriced accessories!

Happy Friday to everyone.

RE: The perfect tablet?

You all should be aware that LSAC is working on a limited function version of ACES2 for the iPad to be available in the September timeframe. This has been a request from many of our member schools. Admission personnel want account access and the ability to read files using this device. Unfortunately, we’re just not big enough to support every new device that comes down the path, so for now, we’re limiting ourselves to iPads.
Just a heads up in case you hear of the need.

We've been working on new viewer for CALI lessons that will run on the
IPad (i.e. no Flash). This will not be an App, but instead a
browser-based viewer that has a "mobile " mode so that the lesson is
viewable on smartphones line Android and Iphone. We should have this
available in time for the conference for test runs and plan to make it
the default lesson viewer by August 1 in time for Fall.

RE: The perfect tablet?

Incidentally, the Viewsonic is on woot.com today for about $30 off what you
can usually get it for.
The refurbished Nook Color (available via BnN on eBay) are a good deal at
$225.

Be ware of the many "android tablets" that try to get under the $300 mark
besides the Nook (which really isn't a tablet but an eReader+). All the ones
that try to undercut what appears to be the necessary costs, really really
bomb.

Looks like the refurbished iPads are out of stock. But at $350, that's
pretty suave.

RE: The perfect tablet?

If anyone buys one of the Viewsonics, I'll help you configure it if you bring it to CALI. That's a great deal on it. I paid $299. Remember, it's heavy compared to an iPad. Other than that, it makes a great cheap tablet, fast, excellent battery life – if you're looking for something to fool with. If you're looking for a super-duper end-user-ready-as-shipped device, you may want something else, and you should be ready to spend $500 or so.

RE: The perfect tablet?

No surprise to anyone who knows me, but I'm a big booster of the
about-to-be-released HP TouchPad running version 3.0 of webOS (developed by
Palm, which HP acquired last year). The form factor (size and weight) is
almost identical to the iPad 1, but it's going to be *very* fast, easily
integrated with all standard systems with low IT involvement needed (and no
iTunes!), is reported to be shipping with QuickOffice for editing (including
Dropbox storage), supports both virtual and Bluetooth keyboards, and is a
great multitasker. The Touchstone inductive charging technology is also very
cool and convenient. Details at:

Subject: [teknoids] The perfect tablet?

I sent this to one of the 'noids earlier this AM but then decided to get a
wider range of opinions. The bottom line is that I'm still waiting for the
perfect device to purchase for schlepping to meetings, etc, which means I'm
still using a laptop/netbook. My needs are simple. I want to take notes and
we're a Windows shop so having a compatible .docx format is important. I'm
not a huge e-reader - gives me a headache. Email, note taking,
browsing...that's about it.

I use a Droid phone so was thinking about the Xoom but it's still pretty
pricey (although they have an upgrade path to the 4GLTE when it comes out in
Q2). I had an ipad for awhile and actually gave it up as it just didn't meet
my needs.

So...other than an ipad, what are people lovin' these days?

The perfect tablet?

Cyndi,
There is no perfect device. I like the iPad and it's fine for note
taking, especially if you add an external keyboard. Of course adding
the external keyboard take away a lot of what makes it so easy to use.
I wouldn't worry about the format of your notes since text is text
most note taking apps will output something that can be imported to
Word or whatever.

I have not really had an opportunity to try out any of the Android
tablets, but I do like my Droid phone and the Color Nook, so there is
likely to be a solution with the Android tablets at some point.

And then there are the Windows 7 tablets like Acer Iconia. At about
the same price points as the iPad/Xoom it may be just the thing for
you. I'm kind of rooting for the Win7 tablets, because I think the
limited operating system of the iPad is a problem long term. Of course
if Apple releases an iPad that runs OSX...

I'm thinking that we need to all bring our gadgets to CALIcon to show
off and compare. I'll arrange to set aside a room at lunch time on
Thursday and Friday as a sort of Gadget Garage.

The perfect tablet?

+1 for gadgets at CALI! I'll be bringing my Viewsonic G Tab, which I like
very much. It's an Android tablet that's a little heavier than it needs to
be, but it's fast and is $299; a device for people who like to hack on
things, I think. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (breathless PR here:
http://bit.ly/j3OBRl ) is getting great reviews and is almost exactly the
same form factor as the iPad, also running Android 3.1. We can expect a
slew of new tablets this summer and, as Elmer mentioned, Windows 8 looks
to be very tablet-oriented and may spur a rebirth in the Windows tablet
world. I know from previous LSTT discussions that Jonathan Ezor would
advise you to take a look at HP's WebOS tablet
(http://www.hpwebos.com/us/products/pads/touchpad/index.html) as well.

Heretical alternative suggestion: MacBook Air 11.1
(http://www.apple.com/macbookair/) ? it's a fully featured and very light
machine. Great display.

Happy Friday,

Ben

RE: The perfect tablet?

My daughter has a Win7 phone and loves it; I gave one up in favor of my Droid. She and her significant other are in a constant battle of device superiority...he's a Mac and she's a PC.
I love the idea of a Gadget Garage! My nickname here at the law school (before I was Dean Dean) was Gadget Gal. =)
I know most word processing apps can do RTF or equivalent but OTOH, when I'm working on a document that's not just straight text, I don't want to lose any of the formatting that needs to stay intact. So a .docx format is most flexible for me.
I'm going to buy this device out of pocket since the law school bought the IT department a new netbook, laptop, and iPad last year....not that they are exclusively "mine" but OTOH, the netbook and laptop don't leave my office.

The perfect tablet?

Cyndi,

Personally - I am a lover of the iPad. However, i do think this ASUS
product is pretty neat:

http://promotions.newegg.com/neemail/june-0-2011/earlyadopter02/index-la...

It is both a tablet and your netbook rolled into one. It might be worth
looking at. For me the biggest negative is that it runs Android
Honeycomb. I personally think that Android is way too splintered right
now. But that is one opinion. Also be aware that most new machines are not
using USB 3.0. I can't tell if this new product does or does not but my
guess is that it doesn't. If I had money to burn I would buy it to play with
it.
