Imagine sitting around the couch playing board games with your friends how about hanging up a huge tablet in the bathroom to replace the mirror, perhaps you have more sinister plans like setting up an illegal casino, or simply you just want a coffee table with a difference then the words biggest Tablet PC is probably going to be more popular than buying a TV.
In an industry where everything is about being as small as you can make Lenovo has bucked the trend and said you know what, I need something a little bigger than 6 inches so they have come up with a 27inch tablet that can sit on your coffee table or rather even be the coffee table! Check out their sales video on the Tablet Table.
I really think this is going to be a hit in fact Lenovo have probably started a new industry all together. Though they arn’t the first people to come up with the idea, I went for an interview with a design company years and years ago with someone working on SURFACE which is basically the same thing that’s just coming out now with Windows 8. I do however remember the price tag was $20,000 and it was rather bulky but this latest version from Lenovo really does kick ass at a paltry $1700 for the 27inch mammoth of a Tablet.
I can see so many applications for this device and with the ability for 8 fingers to interact independently with the screen at the same time will bring more people together. Instead of buying real board games this kind of device can play every single one instantly.
The first application that comes to my mind in how i’d really love to see this large tablet is on tables in nightclubs and bars. With the use of face recognition and a camera you could pull up pictures of other areas of the club click on a girls face and send her a text message. Currently this would cost around $4000 to set up for 2 tables kinda expensive at the moment but in less than 5 years the same setup should cost less than $1000, talk about online dating gone reality! When this occurs the Tablet Table will help even the shy nerdy boy hook up at the club.
The Lenovo tablet won’t be available till towards the end of the year but i’m already excited to see them around as I can see uptake being really quick with this one especially at home. I won’t be taking one to the coffee shop but I do hope the first place they get one is the doctors office so much better than the crappy magazines that are always there.
Would you buy one?
