When it comes to tablets, we hear one complaint over and over again - they are better tailored for media consumption, but not for creating content…

exactly. you dont sue the competition into non-existence to make a better product, you out compete them. Consumers win that way as it keeps pushing the envelope on quality and features. Suing the competition out of existence has the exact opposite long term effect.

No Numeric Keypad, no SALE.

More than ANYTHING else that I can think of, not having a Numeric Keypad inhibits real WORK on any tablet.

I'll just stick with a standard, inexpensive keyboard that has a useful Numberic Keypad.

why are you spamming all the WP article with your numeric keypad comment? do you realise that this is an article about ON-SCREEN TOUCH KEYBOARD???!!!

are you not aware that you can buy a separate NumKeypad for windows?
And tablet is so versatile you can change the layout of the keyboard from alphabets to numbers..

Oh, wait, your work calculator don't have touch screen..

really, sometimes I don't know how you idiots use your phones if you can't even read the articles properly.. At least get the headings right..
