10 Reasons It’s Time For You To Buy A Tablet (A Good One). It’s Worth The Investment From Day One

Millions of people have tablets, most of these are Apple iPads, with a variety of Android devices, followed by BlackBerry PlayBooks and Windows devices.

The “millions of people” include your fellow business owners and entrepreneurs who are finding a productivity boost in the use of tablets.

I have a computer that is my main information creation and consumption device, however, I find that my tablet is also quite handy for a variety of tasks.

Some use their tablet as their main device, while others, like myself find it a great mobile accessory.

Whichever way you choose to use your tablet (as your main computing device or as an accessory) you’ll find that it is a productivity enhancer.

If you have NOT bought a tablet yet, it’s time to buy one for a variety of reasons:

  1. Display presentations on your tablet, much easier than on a computer
  2. Show your web site (or other web sites) to someone
  3. Read magazines, books; listen to podcasts through your tablet, Flipboard is really neat
  4. Access backup copies of all your information through (CX.com, Dropbox, Yousendit, Carbonite and other options)
  5. Batter life is much longer than your notebook
  6. When you wan to travel as LIGHT as possible – a tablet is your best option (and always your phone)
  7. Combined with a wireless keyboard the tablet is a POWERFUL computing device
  8. Tablets often take great photos and videos
  9. Your phone is not an ideal video conference tool, a tablet is
  10. Take notes, with a digital pen, on your tablet

As Gary Vaynerchuk said to an account executive as she was challenging him about the value of social media – what’s the ROI of your mother. Some  things you just can’t quantify. You just know it’s right and DO IT.

Hence, every business owner should have a tablet – you might not think you have a use for it now, but you’ll sure have use for it after you buy it.

    Ramon;

    I have to agree with you here. I _knew_ I should buy a tablet but I just couldn’t justify it. Finally, I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. I’m so glad I did. I have really lightened the load I carry. I sometimes still carry the laptop but the file folders and note pad I used to carry is gone. 

    The use case isn’t what I though it was going to be, it’s more like an enhanced version of my notebook and file storage than it is a laptop replacement, but it’s a terrific tool that I’m glad I purchased.
