Compatibility, reliability and longevity
OK so you have something that will read a .doc and maybe even edit it. You can get tablet sleeves to protect the thing too. Longevity - I will not subject my budget to a device that is out of date about the time my employees get the hang of it. These things are toys that have to be replaced with the "newest and spiffyest" in sometimes less than 12 months. I tossed my "smart" phone in favor of a plain cell phone because it was not xG compatible (you fill in the x, it will change before you read this) Due to the short life of these devices I reject them as business devices and would never design a business application around one because of the lack of compatibility with the new device that came out this morning and tomorrow morning, and the unreliability of being able to replace a failed device because the one we are using is 3 months old or more. Thus there is no longevity and the expense of using them in business escalates beyond reason. Let the big corporations play, but it is not for small or medium busiiness to use. I may buy one to play with and it will end up in the closet with the pile of useless devices I've purchased since the casio was replaced with the Palm Pilot. Money down a rat hole and I'm tired of it. Sorry to pop a bubble for you.
