Do you own a tablet?

Do you own a tablet?
It was just leaked that Samsung is about to unleash the world's thinnest tablets on us, the 5.4" Galaxy Tab S 2, with 8"and 9.7" models, respectively, taking the crown from the aluminum iPad Air 2. Tablets are getting ever thinner, faster and more premium, but their market share is actually shrinking.

After a few years of uninterrupted expansion, due mainly to Apple's iPad line, the unprecedented growth stalled, the iPad share started to equate with the Android and Windows tablet rise, and on the whole the initial excitement subsided quite a bit. 

Of course, a lot of this has to do with the new advancements in the PC space. Thanks to Intel's new frugal and fanless processors, to its Ultrabook design concept, and to Microsoft's touch-oriented Windows editions, we now have full-blown computers that are not much thicker and heavier, and with no less battery life than a larger tablet with a keyboard case, but are much more powerful and capable. Furthermore, tablet developments, besides getting thinner, faster and with more resolute displays, are few and far between, so the replacement cycle is much slower than with smartphones.

That is why we were curious if you have succumbed to the tablet craze, and wanted to ask you whether you own a tablet, if you consider getting one, or if you see no need for a slate in your life whatsoever. Check your answer in the poll below, and tell us what you think about slates in general in the comments.
