We all love new technology. I must admit I lust for all the latest and greatest tech stuff even though my budget keeps me from buying every damned thing on Amazon (and Newegg, etc, etc). But let us face facts here folks, the tech companies don’t always give us what we want and nowhere near what they could be producing.
For the purpose of keeping it simple I shall be illustrating examples of what Tablets and Combos we should be seeing, versus what these idiots are feeding us.
We all want a bigger, brighter, high-def screen, yet about half the tablets offered each cycle are last year’s resolution with a few minor upgrades. Or another great scam is the old “here is a super fast processor, but we killed the camera resolution”, or, the old, “sorry only a front facing camera”, (of dubious, low mp resolution).
Then we have those super nice combo tablets/laptop. whatever you wish to call them, that have an absolutely killer processor but then neglect to throw in twice the ram. Thanks guys, I can now run the same number of apps as last year, with faster, but just the same memory issues.
Another of my pet peeves is no supplying a USB port or three. Does it really cost that much to put in a USB 2.0 or even 3.0 port or TWO on these new devices?
The ultimate combination would be a huge battery (say about 11 hrs REAL battery life with the screen on, 3 or 4GB of DDR3 memory, 2 USB ports and at least full HD cameras front and rear, with a minimum 2.3 GHz, quad-core processor and a display equivalent to today’s bleeding edge tablets/laptops. If you are not including a micro SD slot capable of handling a 64 gb card and an internal capacity of at least 64 gb (twice that for Windoze), please walk away.
So the bottom line is quit charging us out-the-ass for these devices. There is no reason on earth that you couldn’t sell the above described device for right around $299.00. You would wipe out the competition and sell enough units that the smaller profit margin would still put the asshats over at Apple and MicroCrap into cardiac arrest.
Of course that is just my 2 cents….
