Ever since the iPad was launched, I've heard people ask the same question countless number of times; what can you do with it and why would anyone need it? Initially I wasn't sure about it myself but after spending some time with the iPad I got a fair idea of what one could do with the device, and more specifically what I could do with the device.
Now the iPad is no longer the only tablet around with several variants from the Android camp crawling out of the woodwork almost every other day. Even BlackBerry announced its very own tablet, the PlayBook, which plans to take the iPad head on. All this is good reason for people to know what these devices are meant for and what they can be used for. So here are a few things that you can do with a tablet.
Note that many of the things here can be one on a smartphone as well as on a notebook PC. But what sets a tablet apart is the way it does those same things. Also, contrary to what some people might think, the tablet is not a replacement for the notebook PC but rather is a device that complements it.
