Thankfully, hardware convergence is finally coming.  If the latest
generation Atom processors had been around when the iPad took the world by
storm, we would have seen something quite different.  I can now get a fully
functional Dell tablet that is lighter and thinner than an iPad, but it can
run LiveCode any other Windows application.  These Win tablets have GPS
and accelerometers, so why not support them?  Check out the latest Android
Lollipop LapTabLopLet (what else would you call it?):  The Dell Venue 10
