Tablet sales remain bitter, but Nougat tipped to sweeten the market

No compelling general-purpose use

A tablet is neither an apt replacement for my phone (which is more portable), nor for a device with a keyboard, like my laptop (which is much easier to do actual work on).

I don't have kids, so a portable entertainment device with no swallowable parts isn't a requirement.

I toyed with the idea of getting a tablet that was waterproof, for the pool or beach, but I couldn't really justify the expense (and let's face it--it was largely a thought experiment about ways to avoid exercise anyway).

So it always comes down to: do I need a THIRD computing device, and why?
