Sales of large screen tablets have significantly dropped since their initial launch. Will this be the beginning of the end for the largest display technology on the planet? Right now sales are very good, but that could change overnight. Best recommendations for January 21st, 2021.
We had a chance to sit down with a Samsung executive who has responsibility for the new slate and we got some great quotes. Regarding the new large screen tablet, he said that it's going to be unlike any other device we've seen before. I asked him what else can you say about the screen size, he responded by talking about the thickness. He also mentioned that users will benefit from the keys being located at the top of the keyboard.
Looking at the price point, he told us that it's going to be hard for senior citizens to afford an android tablet, but that they'll definitely look into buying one. As we're hearing about more apps becoming available for these new generation tablet PCs, we need to find out what the best tablet apps are for seniors. With programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, it seems as though the tablet PC has evolved greatly in the past few years.
In our discussion Samsung Galaxy Book vs. Apple iPad, one thing quickly became clear. People love the functionality of the apple device, but it seems as though Samsung Galaxy Book really does offer something special. That was evident when we were looking at various apps on the Samsung apps store. It doesn't matter which operating system you prefer, people are going to choose the one that feels most natural.
The other big question we had to address was whether or not having a keyboard is required for video calling. When looking at the video calling features of the iPad, it seemed as though it didn't have nearly as many features as those offered by video calling programs on a laptop. For example, Google Wave would allow you to video chat with people around the world, but you had to have an iPhone to actually make use of it. Fortunately, this feature is no longer exclusive to the iPad. You can now video call with almost anyone who has an iPhone and access to a Wi-Fi network.
The final big question we wanted to address was how well the Samsung Galaxy Tab matches with a stylus. The biggest problem with using a stylus with tablets is that the accuracy of the cursor is often not that great. We were able to type on the Samsung Galaxy Tab successfully, but only if we were using a stylus with excellent control. For example, if you were moving the screen while typing on the tablet, it would be hard to navigate to the right page in the browser.
