iOS, Android, etc., tablet devices in a design workflow?

I’m going to have to spring for one or more tablets (iPad, Tab, whatever) for testing ePubs, digital magazine ads, site rendering, etc. Because I don’t have the consumer nature and also because I’d like to get the best return on investment, I’m interested if any of these devices is also productively usable in a design workflow.

One could throw a portfolio onto a tablet for client presentations, of course, and Adobe has published an app that allows touch control of Photoshop, which might have potential.

It may be a year or two early to ask this question, but does anyone here have personal experience incorporating a tablet device into their web or general graphic work, whether in the studio or on the road? If so, did it prove useful?

Answer

The ipad has several sketching apps that I find useful for wireframing. It’s a decent tool for notetaking as well in meetings. You’ll want to get a stylus likely.

As for art, it has some fun art apps. But I mainly use them for fun rather than any sort of production work.

IMHO, the iPad is just a really fun device. Just enjoy it for what it is. Read some books, watch some netflix, play some games.
