Are tablet computers just a fad.

I will admit that I don't own a tablet, or use a smart phone. But my girlfriends family love their iPhones and similar and at Saturdays family lunch were discussing tablets. Most of them have bought iPads, or Android tablets, seduced by the adverts (I must admit to fancying one myself). But they all admit without exception that they rarely use them after the first week.

From listening, it seemed to me, that for anything they wanted to do on the move, or quickly, they use their phones. And for serious use, they use a laptop, or PC.

So are Tablets just a fad? I quite like my girlfriends iPad, but it would be much better with a proper keyboard (and if I'm honest a mouse too, I'm not keen on all that finger wiping)
