It is clear that tablets are a fresh category in itself, similar to how we differentiate smartphones from laptops & desktops. It is clear that slates appear to serve users with top notch on the go entertainment. And the display is large enough to see a film on, and the slates are light enough for users to carry around. And do not forget the collection of games available on different platforms.
So, now you can understand the reasons behind this sudden craze. And apart from entertainment features, a huge advantage of the slate is the facility for a good sketching, using a stylus pen or simple with your fingers. And smartphones offer lesser opportunities with its small screen size, which eliminates the probability of drafting & other activities. You can also use tablets to write down any idea, & they permit the user to share everything right away without reproducing the text, picture or image, making it a convenient gadget for designers.
In aspects of organizational abilities tablets can be used to organize finances, schedules, reviews, and much more. And smartphones do not offer them as they come with smaller screen siz.
It is clear that slates are not going to replace the remaining forms of computing thingies. There are still things we would rather perform with a personal computer or with the smartphone. And it depends on the nature of the work user is working on. If you are working on a business report, you will probably like a mouse & a keyboard instead of a touchscreen tablet. And nothing offers the portability of a smartphone, and this time because of its screen size.
