Tablet PC Market Forecast to Surpass Notebooks in 2013 – Analysts.
I see business people using tablets to keep upto date with email, news and corporate social media. Thats not a boring task for them, they are actively engaged in their real work. While others watch movies while standing in-line to board a plane. These are just some of many hundreds of examples. People have now the means to never be "bored" when they have idle time.
I think what you are meaning to imply here is that people need to get out more, do chores, do physical activities, trek, sports etc than waste time doing tweets or commenting on facebook when the person is right next to you in the same room. In that case yeah its a shame that society is going in this route.
But there is money to be made and companies would be foolish not to exploit the trend.
My two highschool kids yell so loud when their laptop got issue before I can fix it. Death of PC is over-exaggerated.
If the laptop becomes thin, long battery life, and can be converted to be a tablet, which device people will want to buy and carry? Smartphone is not going away, but tablet... I don't know for sure.
Just my opinion and my own experiences using tablets (I own a 10" and two 7" tablets) I find the smaller screens to be useless for serious web browsing or anything productive long term compared to using a larger screen, though that might have something to do with my aging/ancient eyesight.............sigh
