Get a New Tablet Device

It is terrific to take a dare and explore how the latest technology can make things better for your business by getting a tablet device.

 

It is a well-known and established fact that sales of tablet devices have increased in popularity over the past several years. In some cases, consumers are choosing to purchase tablet devices instead of desktop or laptop computers. Entrepreneurs would be well served to take this fact into consideration when purchasing technology for the office.

A tablet or tablet pc is commonly defined as a portable computer that uses a touchscreen as the primary input device.On computers, one typically says she is opening a program. On tablets, one typically says she is opening an application or app. Most tablets are smaller in terms of square footage and weight than a traditional laptop computer.

Tablets are made by a variety of manufacturers on a variety of platforms including Android, Apple, and Windows. Which platform is the best? It depends on your personal preferences and business needs. I am not an Apple person so I never buy or recommend their products, but I admit it is my personal preference. Most tablets are very similar in form and function so it is best to buy something that fits your personal taste preferences.

Tablets are commonly used for entertainment applications such as watching movies, listening to music or even reading books. Entrepreneurs should note that tablets are useful tools for business owners  and can be used for a variety of business tasks including:

  • writing
  • research
  • presentations
  • information storage
  • photographs

 

Among my entrepreneurial activities, I own a consulting firm geared toward advising small businesses, write a daily blog that accepts paid advertising from sponsors, and have started an e-book publishing company.  For my work, a tablet is a waste of money and space if I cannot use it to write with ease. I have used several brands of tablet and find that I am able to use them for writing both with and without a stylus with ease. For entrepreneurs who travel, tablets have the additional advantage of being small in size and possessing better battery life than most laptops which make them easy to use on buses, trains, and airplanes. Once upon a time, a visit to the local coffee would reveal many entrepreneurs with their laptops out as they drank coffee and handled business matters. Today, those laptops are increasingly being replaced by tablet devices.

  • Great post. I recently upgraded to a tablet with a larger screen and invested in a wireless keyboard so I have the same "feel" of my laptop while traveling. I often held my breath traveling with my laptop b/c one drop would be heartbreaking especially when you work remotely.

    • The tablet with a keyboard is a game changer. It is so much nicer for travel!
