As an author, poet and geocacher in the process of searching for a device that does everything I want it to do is difficult.
I want a device:
- I can check my emails and that new emails will “push” or automatically download to the device and notify me of their existence
- I can run netflix/Amazon Instant Video
- I can update my websites/blogs/Author Platform (wordpress, google+, facebook, Amazon Author Central)
- I can do writing (good keyboard/keyboard enabled)
- I can read books!
- 10+ hour battery life
So basically I want a phone/tablet/e-reader all in one
Also: It would be awesome if I could hook it up to an external monitor…
According to PC Encyclopedia, a phablet is: “A smartphone with a 5″ to 6″ screen. With a display larger than traditional smartphones, a phablet offers a better visual experience for viewing Web pages but can be bulky in an small shirt or pants pocket.”
I think 5″ to 6″ might be too small for use and too big for a pocket.
Here’s a cool comparison website I found: http://tablets-review.toptenreviews.com/
What do you use and why? Do you use it as an author, reader, employee, researcher, etc? Can your device do it all?
