What's wrong shot with Android tablets?

tablets are glazed to a turbulent history: when Steve Jobs pulled the iPad from my pocket, he had the world at my feet. With my iPhone and iPad, it spawned the era of mobile Internet in just a few years. The tablets were seen as future products, and Google also wanted to take over a large share of this market. But after the jubilant, it was the hangover: what, exactly, is the interest of these bulky slabs?

then the smartphone screens themselves are expanded as and when the value tablets declined. Most Web sites have a mobile version, and the need to have a larger screen so you can see the desktop versions is also pressing for the public. Then, using these products for the gaming remains important, but also, smartphones are widely caught up in this area. And as to the productivity with editing documents, photos or other? This has never been one of the priorities of the tablets.

where are the new flagship products?

The beginning of this year seemed very sluggish: there is not new to advise Android tablets. And almost no novelty on the market in 2016 has really caught our attention. They come from Samsung, Sony, NVIDIA, or Google – material offerings are either obsolete or too expensive; the fairly new Pixel C was too expensive for a single tablet. Of course, there are a lot of entry level – not to say cheap – tablets that are available. Poor displays and processors which laguent poisoned any possible use a tablet. And the last hopes in a top-of-range Tablet are probably on the shoulders of Samsung and its Galaxy Tab S3.

Opinion by Hans-Georg Kluge

the tablets have been reduced to low quality products.

What do you think?

The real innovations are made scarce on Android tablets. An exception to the rule might be the Lenovo Yoga Book and charm of notebook. But in reality – in any case for me – the Book Yoga does not cause particular enthusiasm, and I am skeptical about its CPU performance. And above all, I don’t trust anymore to Android tablets, even if Lenovo has made many improvements on the user experience.

Google has left fallow to support user for Android tablets: at most brought mode windowing with Nougat. Apart from this, few things have changed in recent years. Developers are also strangely absent: really what applications benefit from the potential of the tablet display? Very little. Therefore, normal that Android tablets have yet to prove themselves.

v. tablets 2-in-1

but what is the Tablet market is also moribund that suggest observers? In General, it is more the opposite: between the notebook and the Tablet, 2-in-1’s are clearing a path. Many manufacturers have one of their products – and most are under Windows 10.

And there are a few reasons for this type of product is being a better choice: flat, these are ideals screens for watching multimedia content or films. Unfolded, they can be used for a use of daily work through their keyboards. They combine all of the qualities of the notebook and tablet, without their respective weaknesses: the shelves are rather large and cumbersome and offer barely more than a smartphone. If you want to take notes, edit photos or spreadsheets spreadsheets, you quickly reach the limits of the capacity of a tablet.

Opinion by Hans-Georg Kluge

the hybrids are simply more practical than shelves

what do you think?

With respect to the software, the 2-in-1 surpass Android applications, which are not compatible with the tablets. Of course, Windows 10 is an ideal solution in terms of compatibility with the tablets. But normal software can be used alongside the multi-OS applications. There is also the case of the Book Yoga for Windows, probably a better choice. While Microsoft is a bit released the field of smartphones, Google is invested on the front of the shelves.

Google apparently done with Android on tablets. In a post on their blog, the firm speaks above all of Chromebook under Chrome OS, but presents also a few models of convertibles and tablets under this system. The capabilities of Chrome OS have recently expanded to include special accommodations for touchscreen and Android apps support. According to Google, Adobe has even optimised apps creative cloud for Chromebooks! Important detail: Google calls them Chromebooks, no Android tablets (although applications will probably be optimized for use on Tablet).

Opinion by Hans-Georg Kluge

Chrome OS could help the tablets to renew

what do you think?

Chrome OS could start the year with beautiful things: the platform incurs a minor concern to update and will be able to support Android applications. What is more, the interface is designed to cover a large part of the display. And, as an inexpensive alternative to notebooks in the proper manner, a convertible Chromebook might do the trick.

And you, keep you interested in tablets in 2017? Or is that what this era is now over? Let me know in the comments!
