I saved this one for obvious reasons. We’ve reported and it several times over the last week. It’s arguably the most powerful consumer level tablet known to man. The Razer Edge Pro gaming tablet is like no other. Lets recap, shall we? The Edge Pro tablet has a 10.1 IPS panel display with 10-points of touch. The resolution is 1366 x 768 resolution and 1080p over HDMi out connection. It’s running Windows 8, has Intel i5/i7 upt 1.9GHz (turbo to 3.0GHz), 4-8GB of memory and a DX11 capable 640M gpu + Intel’s HD400 integrated GPU. I was surprised to see a full Solid State Drive inside capable of 256GB (SATA III). Razer Edge Pro is not meant to replace your desktop. But it can replicate full desktop capabilities on the go through a host of aftermarket .
This was one of the stunning breakout hopefuls of the show. No one was expecting Panasonic to show up with a massive 20-inch 4k tablet. The beast from Panasonic runs Windows 8, supports touch and stylus inputs, and seizes the senses with an unheard-of 3840 x 2560 4K resolution across its IPS Alpha panel type. This resolution can easily digest A3-sized paper, rendering that ideal for reading literature as well as watching movies in unprecedented vibrancy. Would you believe the thing only weighs just over 5-lbs? Exact specifications, pricing and availability are still TBD. More on this one as it develops.
Tablets support advisors’ sales processes and productivity.
Tablets give advisors the flexibility to interact with customers in new and cool ways via their fast start-up times, high-resolution screens, and customer-friendly format. Insurance agents can use tablets for sales and administration purposes. Working digitally is efficient and gives agents more time to focus on selling rather than administration. Take the situation of Dutch brokers as an example: As of January 1, 2013, they will have to start working on a fee-based rather than commission-based model. With less income coming in, some of them may no longer be able to afford their support staff. Therefore, their need to work digitally will become a reality — and a necessity. Widespread advisor adoption of these digital working practices will help financial firms reduce costs and aid them in their digital transformation. Read more about this in my report ‘.
