We're the first to admit that battery life has gotten pretty good on tablets, with 10-12 hours now commonplace. That's not good enough for our dream tablet, though, as we want to be able to use it a couple of days without hitting the charger.
That desire means a solid 15 hours of usage on a single charge. It's not that big a stretch over current tablets. And it's our dream, so there.
Tablets are perfect for catching tunes on the go, whether the music is stored locally or streaming from the cloud. We plan on doing that a lot on our perfect tablet so we need some killer audio onboard.
That means good speakers, and not just those with a fancy brand name. No, we're talking good stereo speakers with decent audio playback that will make us tap our feet and annoyingly play air guitar.
Sure, we can plug in good earbuds to get decent audio, but sometimes you need to crank up the volume on the tablet and blast the room.
Lots and lots of storage
The killer audio coupled with the enhanced video capability of our dream tablet means we will want lots of storage capacity. We'll do our share of keeping things in the cloud, but we want the option of stashing lots of music and video.
This means a solid 64GB of internal storage on our perfect slate, and a memory card slot to add more when needed. A microSD slot or even a full SD slot will suit just fine and let us add another 64GB of storage.
