For instance I ride the train to work every day and can't help but envoy those people with a tablet reading a paper, magazine, or website in a very comfortable manner.
      A good smartphone does that , AND fits in your pocket

For instance I ride the train to work every day and can't help but envoy those people with a tablet reading a paper, magazine, or website in a very comfortable manner. My laptop goes with me to work, but its very awkward to pull it out wait a few minutes for it to power up, and try and navigate the trackpad on a bumpy train ride, then conform my body to read the screen. In another instances of usefulness beyond laptops I read where an auto insurance company gave 2000 of its claim agents these devices. They take them to where the car is, no mess no fuss fill out forms, get signatures, take pictures all from one device, with out the need of table. Of course there are more scenarios. A laptop may fit your needs, but that does not change the fact that the tablet is a great form factor for a lot of others.
        As I said, a replacement for paper maybe, and you're right that many people still hold newspapers, like when riding on a train is a good example of that, or like when Picard (sorry, Star Trek geek) is walking around looking at something, but:

        Right, in instances where you're mobile, a smart phone is more portable than a pad, and while you're stationary a laptop/desktop is best. There might be use sometimes for a pad between these mobile and stationary use cases, but I personally don't need it or care about it as I'd rather not lug around one extra (and large) device with me for some theoretical instance where I'm mobile but a smart phone won't cut it for some reason.
