Submission + - Why Did You Get A Tablet?

pjr.cc writes: I've never seen the need of a tablet, I've played with several (including the IPad's) and just never really found a real use for them that compelled me to want one other then the geek inside me who wants the latest gadgets (that was true until a week ago). So I'm curious what made people want a tablet?

My sudden shift in tablet greed came from a rather unexpected source. A little while ago, the android market hit 10 billion downloads and kicked off its 10 billion promotion, which included Adobe sketchbook. I figured "hey, i'll get it, should be a laugh". Later, this prompted me to look at stylus's again, and to date i've hated them all. From silly sausages to ridiculous brushes, i've had a chance to play with them and disliked them all. That was until I saw the Adonis Jot and I was intrigued enough that I figured I'd give it a go (its really not that expensive). It came and I was impressed, very very impressed with its accuracy and it has me now wanting a tablet simply because I often pull out bits of paper from the printer to jot down ideas on. This seems like a perfect replacement for that purpose — though an expensive one and i'd like to get more value form it then simply a paper-and-pen replacement.

Just for the record, I am not in any way affiliated with Adonis or their styli.
