Interesting post. Now that I’m traveling more, I do face this dilemma.
The tablet (I’m using to post this) doesn’t cut it as a travel device. Not does the droid x2, nor my netbook. But since the option is straining my back and lugging a laptop along, I am making do with a netbook when I travel.
A universal dock in hotel rooms would be great. Better voice transcription would make devices better, even this tablet!
