Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

Oh, I agree no one needs a tablet. A laptop is much more powerful and it's also portable.

But a tablet can be very convinient. It's easy to pick up, instantly usable and massive battery life. My laptop usage has dropped to almost zero since I bought an iPad.

For quick Internet access it's too much hassle to power up a laptop, but grabbing a tablet is easy.
