The future of Tablet Computers in Enterprises

There are too many different types of tablet computers across a variety of platforms floating out there in the market today – but the million dollar question here is, which of these devices really hold the potential to evolve as the workspace favorite in the long run?

Tablets in the business worldMany observers tend to be inclined towards the belief that tablets are the future and quite understandably, it’s that kind of a prediction that PC makers do not take too kindly to.

While, many of us don’t really believe that tablets can pose serious existential threat to laptops (and PCs) in workspace, it’s an undeniable fact that enterprise IT has come a long way in the past few years. As a part of this change, tablets are playing an increasingly more dominant role at work – either through bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program for the staff or through direct purchases by the organization itself.

In a bid to stand out in the cut throat competitive market, tablet suppliers usually offer an array of products varying by operating system, screen size, connectivity options as well as other accessories and features. The size of the device plays a particularly important role when it comes to attracting buyers. For example, surveys conducted on online shopping trends in the U.S. have highlighted that most buyers usually tend to opt for traditional tablet sizes.

According to one study, 61 per cent of the consumers who either own or plan to own a tablet prefer slates sizing in the range of 8.9” and 10.1”. Notably, this range includes products such as the Amazon Kindle HD (8.9”), Apple’s iPad (9.7”) and Samsung’s Galaxy (10.1”). However, the fact that 39 per cent consumers do not prefer tablets belonging to this category leaves ample space for devices with other form factors to bloom.

The same study found that approximately 16 per cent consumers prefer slates between 7” and 7.9”. At 7”, Amazon’s original Kindle Fire HD is a good option for those preferring products of that size, and so is the iPad Mini that has been playing an increasingly more important role in Apple’s tablet portfolio. Meanwhile, Microsoft is also committed towards controlling a big chunk of the smaller tablet market with its Windows 8.1 and Windows RT OS powered devices.Ipad Mini 3

Larger tablets have their own fan-base too. The study concluded that 11 per cent consumers preferred tablets larger than 10.1”. However, 12 per cent consumers do not know what kind of tablet they actually want. For them, it is extremely important to try out a device firsthand before purchasing it. This, no doubt, highlights the importance of offering a superior retail experience to consumers – something Apple seems to have mastered quite well over the years.ga

Apart from the size, another crucial factor that adds to the success or failure of a device is the Operating System. Traditionally, Apple has been the dominant force in this category with its iOS platform surpassing the competitors by huge margins. However, with the popularity of Android powered slates soaring high and the emergence of many new and promising Windows tablets in the recent past has made sure that Apple’s firm grip over the worldwide tablet market comes under severe pressure.

Tablets are slowly but steadily making their way into the modern workspace, and the fact that there will be around 738 million sold devices by 2017 further boosts the prospects of a more widespread BYOD behavior.

Tablets enable the cloudIn those offices where BYOD can’t be an option on legal ground or for some other reason, a co-opt policy could be the answer. This is when companies could exercise the option of purchasing slates at par with the best consumer devices available in the market. Microsoft sees a much more lucrative future here for the company’s tablet portfolio that come blessed with the power of popular Windows applications such as Office.

Tablet suppliers will also have to take into account the fact that most companies prefer to build their unique systems for employees. The ability to build proprietary apps for intra-office usage at a much lower cost is another important factor that gives tablet computers an edge in the modern workspace. Many companies these days are using software development kits to roll out programs designed to solve the issues their employees face during day-to-day operations. Therefore, making their platforms easier and more accessible for app development could give tablet suppliers a key edge over their competitors.

Cannes allows a platform for buyers and sellers to exchange film and distribution rights, which many consider to be the first major event on the calendar for the buying and selling of international film rights, as it attracts distributors from all over the world.

Prix du scénario is awarded for the best screenplay at the festival.

Samsung Recorded Bend Test to Prove Strength of its Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung apparently chose NOT to ignore the SquareTrade deforming, bending and then ultimately destroying the tech industry giant’s latest and greatest Galaxy “S” series smartphone model. In its own official response to the bend test that had been recently published, Samsung posted a blog post reply that slammed SquareTrade for placing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone model under a massive amount of weight which the Samsung company claims rarely ever occurs in normal circumstances. The company also says that its internal figures have discovered that the force that’s typically generated whenever an individual presses on their back pocket is around 66lbf.

Samsung Bending it like BeckhamSamsung says in its own blog post that its internal test results indicated that both new Samsung Galaxy “S” series phones: the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are not bendable smartphone devices—even under 79lbf, the equivalence of applying pressure to snap a group of 5 pencils all at one time. The pencils that are broken in half appear in the Samsung company’s own video of its bend test. Samsung also noted in a clip of its video bend test that it’s not an easy task to break 4 pencils all at one time, and breaking 5 pencils is an even more difficult task.  The Samsung company subjected the Galaxy S6 to the specified force, but never went far enough to actually bend nor destroy its smartphone device, permanently.

Samsung is not happy about SquareTrade only having tested the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with its screen facing upwards. The Samsung company had written that some smartphone devices have different durability in the front and the back sides, respectively. SquareTrade only tested the phone’s front side and this could mislead some consumers about the durability of certain smartphone devices. Therefore, in addition to posting a company bend test and a rebuttal, Samsung formally requested SquareTrade to run the test again, but this time to use both sides of the smartphone, and publicize the results.

A Look At The New $149 Hisense Chromebook

The Google company introduces its most affordable Chromebook model thus far: the $149 Hisense Chromebook. The Haier Chromebook 11 is also starting at the $149 price as well. Google has also hinted about a dongle called the Chromebit which will also bring the Chrome Operating System to any television set and/or computer monitor that has an HDMI port, and for even less money.

The HiSense ChromebookThe new Chromebook models are now available for pre-order and are set to ship out this month. These new models run quad-core ARM processors made by the Rockchip company, a Chinese semiconductor company. It also features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. Both Chromebook models have one HDMI port, a microSD card slot for expanded memory, and 2 USB 2.0 ports. They have a screen size of 11.6 inches and 1,366 x 768 pixel displays.

The specifications are not going to wow anybody like the $1,000 Chromebook Pixel model may, but they are certainly sufficient models for internet surfing and light-weight computer work. The low-priced Chromebook models are targeted for emerging markets like India and China and schools.

Before these new Chromebook models were released, the cheapest one available on the market was an Acer model that had a $200 selling price. (Windows also has a $200 laptop as well.) The Haier and Hisense companies may not be very well-known brand names in the United States, but they are very successful electronics companies in their home Chinese market. They are now attempting to get more visibility in the USA.

The biggest differences in the 2 new cheap Chromebook models are in the battery life and the hardware styling. The black Hisense Chromebook has a battery life of nearly 8.5 hours. The white Haier Chromebook 11 model has a battery life of 10 hours.
