The Future of Gadgets: Tablets For An Always On Lifestyle
Why we'll be able to use tablets for every facet of our lives in the near future, as written on IQ for Intel.
We’ve seen it in movies for ages. A future where all of our screens are linked, easily manipulated by a variety of inputs and always on. Content moves seamlessly across devices that seem to anticipate our every thought and need, staying one step ahead of our demanding media consumption and work habits. Sound like science fiction?
Turns out you can have something that approaches the ‘Minority Report’ experience with Windows 8 tablets that use Intel chips. Imagine if you will, waking up and having your morning coffee. Reaching over for your tablet, it is already ready to go, having been in a ‘Connected Standby’ mode that gives you instant access to calls, texts and other notifications while using minimal power overnight. As you browse your favorite news and social streams, perhaps you realize that you forgot to upload some images to Facebook or send important work files that are on another device. Seamlessly sync the tablet with your other gadgets using USB, MicroSD, HDMI or Bluetooth, or cut the cords completely and take advantage of the tablet’s Dropbox functionality.
