Tablets are great entertainment devices, but when compared to a computer they're hardly as quick and useful for getting things done. But if you want your tablet to be more than just a fun little toy, it's really just a matter of the right apps, attitude, and configuration. Here's how you can turn your tablet into a handy, productivity-boosting tool.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
We love Android tablets running Honeycomb, so new competitors are always welcome. Toshiba today announced that its AT100 tablet will hit Australian shelves at the end of the month, selling for $579.
The Motorola Xoom tablet has only been on sale through Telstra for a fortnight, but Telstra is already promising a fairly speedy upgrade to Android Honeycomb 3.1 before too long. On the Telstra Exchange blog, Telstra says the 3.1 update will be rolled out in July.
We looked at the key features in Honeycomb earlier in the year, but we're now getting much closer to the actual release of devices offering the optimised-for-tablet version of Android. I've been testing out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v ahead of its official release, and it has some pretty nifty features for productivity-minded travellers.
