Challenging Tablet Productivity Assumptions

I guess it’s fair to say that with the exception of full-fledged Windows devices, I’ve always held that tablets were little more than media consumption devices upon which one would be mad to attempt a full days work.

While I still hold that is true with regards to processor intensive work such as video editing, I’ve found that mobility offered  by my Nexus 7 has become almost indispensable in my day-to-day work. With that in mind, I’ve set myself the challenge of (excepting graphic design work and recording Nothing Serious) of working as exclusively as possible from my Nexus 7 paired with a Sharkk Bluetooth keyboard.

As you can see from the pictures, working with the ultra-thin (just 4mm) Sharkk keyboard, and the 7 inch screen of the Nexus, should be an interesting challenge for someone with like me. And by “someone like me”, I mean someone who suffers from “sausage fingers” (or dick fingers as Sara likes to call them) and an overwhelming desire to keep adding more and more monitors to every computer he can lay those sausage fingers upon.

I guess over the next few day I’ll find out just how “mad” it is to attempt to work like this.

Wish me luck!

BTW: This post was the first thing to be completed using this setup  😀
