I still remember when tablets were thought of as a bit outside the norm. However, there's so many applications that are transforming their user interfaces and convenient on a tablet that behavior is iyashintsha. Namuhla nje ngishiye ilaptop yami ekhaya ngenkathi ngidlulela kuBarnes naseNoble. Ngilethe i-iPad yami lapho futhi ngathola umsebenzi omningi impela.
Even though I have a Thunderbolt with an enormous screen, my iPad still has much more convenient real estate to work in. I'm not alone… Digitimes reports that 40 million iPad tablets will be sold in 2011 and that number is expected to rise double digits next year. Third party tablets are expected to see triple-digit growth! Laptop sales, on the other hand, have wehla. Ithebhulethi isifikile!
