    What are your motivations behind getting a tablet, or what are your main uses for your tablet?

    Only choose what you would use a tablet for regularly. That means using the functionality at least a few times per week to qualify as 'regularly'.

    Some of you may end up picking all of the above.

    Choose any that apply to you

    Following the IDC analysis for Usages on Netbooks vs Tablets (link: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...-analysis-netbook-vs-tablet-usage-2010-a.html), the uses for computing devices can fall in the following 14 categories.

    This poll only allows for 10 choices, so some of these have been combined into one.

    iNTEL should know better not to leave out IT crowd. You can use these in a conference meeting, and monitor your network operations. Frankly the whole idea to use a PC was to take on task that you wanted to make easier. Desktop Publishing, Answering Phones, running other labor task work. Tablet can ease that up too. Tablet is your media center, and business center.

    I wanted to experience Android OS.
    I have in interest in developing for Android.
    I wanted something more mobile then a netbook to keep on the coffee table in case I wanted to check something out real quick.

    I use mine in the caravan to get mail when we are away from home, as well as browse the web. I use a MiFi on a 6m pole and get a fab reception via wireless. Being so compact it takes up no room and I can take it into Service Area/Shopping Malls, etc for free WiFi.

    I use my tablet as a cheaper and more mobile alternative to a laptop.

    I use a tablet because I am visually impaired and it is easier for me to use than either a desktop or laptop.
