Tablets and touch devices are getting more and more popular. They are obviously the next cool thing.
First Apple and later Google with Android made tablets a reality that more and more people like to use.
Many approach this as a technology challenge:
- HTML5 for desktop and mobile devices
- packaging Webfrontends into a native app container
- Porting toolkits from desktop to tablets (JavaFX)
- modeling an application to make the generate Application run in multiple environments
- running RCP apps on a tablet using RAP mobile (now Tabris)
