What’s the biggest problem with tablets these days?
According to Nvidia and Asus (maker of the excellent to use and say Eee Pad), it’s the price. Asus announced its next 7″ tablet, complete with Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich (that would be the program, not the food) and a similar screen and audio system to their popular Tegra 3 tablet, at a price point of $249 dollars.
For those of us who have been eyeing a tablet, but have been put off by price, this is welcome news. Most. . . more affordable tablets (if we may be so bold) have been running on versions of phone software, leading to video resolutions that don’t quite match up to the standards of a larger screen, glitchy interaction, and other frustrating problems that make them tough to use.
Does this herald a future where we’ll be seeing tablets under the arm of every man, woman, and child? Who knows. But I’m excited to see how it all pans out.
