And there’s not a single tablet shown that interests me.
99.9% of them are widescreen and the typical seven, eight, and ten inches that have dominated Android tablets.
The Intel/Rockchip SOFIA stuff puts me to sleep. That’s more about Intel trying to save itself than creating something I’d want. Besides, they’ve brought a 3G knife to a 4G gunfight. Here in America, 4G is now available even via pre-pay services such as Metro PCS. So who’d want to get 3G?
With China seemingly ending production of iPad-like tablets, my interest in what goes on over there will quickly diminish.
As it is, I’ve already made a tentative decision about what tablet I want to buy: One of the new high-end 4:3 tablets Samsung is rumored to be releasing soon. I can’t resist their gorgeous Super-AMOLED screen.
iPad? I don’t like what iOS 8 looks like and the more I read of Android — and the more I fondle it in stores — the more I like the flexibility it offers over iOS. Apple’s tablet thinking is becoming fossilized.
Anyway, those of you who bought a 4:3 tablet from China — you’d better enjoy it because there likely won’t be any replacement by the end of this year if the HKEF trend holds.
