It's not a pc, its a highly portable content consuming and viewing device not a content creation device. One might find it useful for some initital content creation, maybe note taking but so far I have not found that very helpful.
Integration with a printer is a good idea. Does this requirement get subsumed if the tablet is well integrated with the private cloud services in your office or home/office?
Have to agree with you on browsers. And browser plugins and extensions need to work too. Specifically Last Pass has all my pwd and unless the browser includes a good last pass integration it is useless to me for all the online logins.
I prefer typing to handwriting but sketching would be useful to me. Especially when I am in the field and sketching landscaping details, building remodeling and such. It would really be helpful if the sketches I created could be pulled into Google Sketchup and used for some architectural and engineering drawings.
I agree about the prices too. There is not really much in the tablet that should cost a lot. The manufacturers must be making a lot of profit on these.
I need internal storage only caz getting it to the local network file storage is not so easy. This goes back to my private cloud comment in #2. I should be able to drag any file to an icon on the tablet and have it moved to the Raid array storage on my home network private cloud service.
I think of the tablet as between a smartphone and a laptop. And actually if I could apportion the features between them all, smartphone, tablet, laptop, pc, workstation and server with a little bit of overlap, and all melded into a private cloud that would be best.
USB support might be okay but again better integration with my private cloud would be better.
Better access to SD cards would be great but again better integration with my private cloud would be better.
I am waiting on the delivery of my Samsung docking station for my Galaxy Tab 10.1 I am not getting much use out of. An upcoming road trip might draw out some additional usage.
In general, I would like to see my smartphone and tablet work better with my private cloud which I have to admit is not as fluid and seamless I want it to be just yet. the tablet is going to have a place in all this, I just have to figure out how to get the tablet and all the other components better integrated.
