The future of the laptop – Will the Tablet and Smartphone takeover?

Given the recent popularity of the Ipad 1 and Ipad 2 many people have begun to question whether the growth of tablets spells the beginning of the end of the laptop. From talking to our customer base it would seem that people don’t view the tablet and the laptop and substitutes. For one tablets can’t be used for word processing therefore are of a lot less use to students and professionals. Secondly, ergonomically tablets aren’t that popular with everyone given the lack of a keyboard.

It does seem that the days of the netbook may be drawing in however with the growth of the tablet. Since netbooks also lack computing power, they represent a more direct substitute to the Ipad and the Samsung Galaxy. Again however it remains to be seen whether the absence of a physical keyboard is something people will readily accept over time.
