    Nothing to do with 'posing'. Its a tool for a job. a 4" screen is not big enough IMO for doing the sort of tasks mentioned. Logging in at random machines is annoying and inefficient. Having a 7-10" screen which can easily be slung in a shoulder harness as shown earlier which you can instantly do tasks just seems sensible to me.

    Particularly if someone has written an application to make your tablet look like one of these:

    Depends on how good the resolution is and how good your eyesight is

    With the open accessory stuff from android you are probably more likely to fing a phone/tablet to serial port adapter which is rather handy technically.

    I use my iPAD reguarly for note taking and calendar mainly.

    I also can check on my vSphere servers and remote in where necessary.

    It's also useful for checking on tickets via our helpdesk, but I tend to pick them up via e-mail.

    Mainly use my iPad for Angry Birds but also use PocketCloud for remote desktop / password resets and the service desk for logging jobs.
