But you're correct. Most Android tablets are dog shit which really blows, but at the same time, I don't really care for tablets anymore.
iAmNaN77141yI like my Samsung Tab A; it does exactly what I want... it plays Pandora and connects to my Harman Kardon Onyx 4, and fills my room with music. That and the Kindle app. Can't think of much anything else. Reading and listening to music. My Apple (REEEEE) iPhone X does the rest.
@iAmNaN I liked to do some casual gaming on my iPad mini when I had it. I also used it to watch YouTube or WatchESPN instead of my phone (had a Moto G phone at the time, so the screen was pretty shit compared to the iPad screen).
I tried to read on it, but I just can't stand reading books off a tablet. I prefer hard copies
iAmNaN77141y@Stuxnet I like real books as well, but I think it's really awesome that I can listen to the book and read it at the same time. It brings a new dimension to understanding what one is reading. Mind you, I'm listening to Debussy or Chopin while I'm doing this, because Disturbed is too distracting.
Wisecrack3811355dthe future of devices will probably be better hardware combine with custom app loadouts for specific uses.
I'd bet money on it.
Don't think phone+appstore
Think "music work station", "video editing platform", "business management / pos hub", "security hub", etc.
We're seeing it already in the movement toward slicker point-of-sale hardware e.x. square, but if the present and past are any indicator of the future, then the walled gardens will all shrink to islands each tailored for every sort of consumer.
The problem with the current walled gardens is massive competition and massive visibility issues. It's becoming a reputation issue. Nothing marketing (that removes choices, and locks down hardware) can't fix!
