Hi. My name is Adam Saunders and I live in the world of 1's and 0's. This is my tiny contribution the vastness of internet information. It's just an opinion and should you have your own, please comment it!

I'm only writing this because I've been asked about tablets a fair bit recently, and people always ask, "do you have an iPad?"

Quite simply, they are a touch screen media device that doesn't behave like a tablet in my opinion. One of the most important aspects of a tablet is the way it can become digital paper. This means it needs more precise tools such as a digital pen to make it a worthy tablet.

I've been contemplating these new tablets and even being a huge fan and advocate of the Android platform, I'm struggling to see a reason to get one except for a slightly nicer web experience than my phone, and that isn't problematic on the Nexus One anyway. With all the hullabaloo about the Tablet PC experience not being finger friendly I think the main point is missed.. For business, I need to draw stuff like this...

I do like the idea that these new tablets are sleek, have long battery life and handle media well, but without any real practical purpose beyond all the devices I already have around me, any contemplation of getting one would be simply be a total waste of money that could be spent one something that actually does the job.

So what does the job? In my case the HP convertable tablet notepad has been a prized tool for the type of work I do.. It does all the things the iPad's and other "tablets" do, but so much more!
