OK, BO...here's a scenario and tell me if your combination of three pieces of kit can do this either singly or together?
Plug in an SD card and transfer the images onto one of these devices. Then using that device, upload the images to Flickr.
Or using a USB cable, plug in a camera, transfer the photos from the camera into your device as a backup. Then upload to Flickr.
But, it gets there, and I was grateful last year in a remote part of Armenia when every other piece of technology failed and my Kindle actually got onto the net and worked. But, that's a desperate situation!!
In the same region it downloaded a copy of Tony Benn's biog in seconds!!!!
So as an e-reader and e-book downloader it's untouchable anywhere , but it's no good as an internet surfer or email device.

Know your rights - all three of 'em
I guess if a rationale is required for purchasing a tablet, it is that it provides a very useful and convenient package for doing a lot of computing tasks. It can't do everything, and what it can do is emulated by laptops, smart phones. But why do I always pick up the tablet if I want some mobile computing?
Beef Oven & Stunsworth - thanks for responses
I have been using iPads daily for a couple of years now. I agree with some of your criticisms, but they still get a lot of use, and often my main computers don't get turned on.
What mobile devices do you recommend? I don't think they're all equally good. Just saying Android isn't enough - we need brands and models.
