Principal Gleeson of Mountrath Community College in Laois on switching over to e-books using exclusively the HP Elite Pad:
We had a number of issues with the devices.
We met with HP yesterday, not for the first time, and they are doing everything in their power to resolve the problem.
The HP Elite Pad has proved to be an unmitigated disaster. We have met with HP representatives on a number of occasions to address the issues.
To ensure stability and continuity of education I have ordered a full set of books for all the students.
We wanted a device that was effectively a computer in tablet form for our students, so it would have a word processor, sufficient memory etc
The memory of the HP device is 64GB, it far exceeds other tablets’ memory capacity
A year and a half’s worth of research was put into choosing the right device for us.
I feel bad for the students that were obligated to buy the turd for €550.
An amazing device at an amazing price, but the Android tablet ecosystem still sucks. I’ll probably get one anyway.
Now with a super dense 323 pixels-per-inch display, Android 4.3 that has multi-user support, and optional LTE support.
Huawei’s new MediaPad 7 has phone capabilities and they want you to hold it up to your face. It looks perfectly normal, no?
Let’s break down the comparisons:
Acer announces the Aspire R7. It combines a desktop, laptop, and tablet; but I can’t understand why anyone would want to use a trackpad that’s behind the keyboard.
Or maybe Blackberry will be dead in 5 years…
The Nexus 10 is a dud, sales are negligible. The struggling Microsoft Surface tablets have even reportedly outsold them.
And it continues, Windows 8 is not helping.
This doesn’t bode well for Microsoft.
Using your tablet to make the occasional VOIP call comes in handy, but do we want it to be our Smartphone too? and one that is designed to be held up to our ear?
Looks like a decent tablet, but does Samsung really expect users to hold this thing up to their ear and use it as a phone?!?
It’s a full featured laptop, but you can only use it like a traditional laptop on flat surfaces. The battery is not up to snuff compared to it’s competitors as a tablet nor as a laptop. The screen size is lacking as a traditional laptop and it’s too big and fat to use comfortably as a tablet. Tell me, how is this device offering no compromised? It’s nothing but a big compromise, like all designs are!
