Thanks for the review. It's a good idea to have engineers critique consumer products their industry colleagues work on; it's like a peer review (but it might be more useful to have the critique before the product launchs).
I've been thinking about a 10-11" tablet for getting work done (so a keyboard is a must, but I want something that's also very light). I was really thinking about the Dell Venue 11 Pro series, but I still want to run legacy software, so I wanted a lower resolution display than the Dell's 1920x1080. Oh, and I don't need fast, since I've got a quad-core Xeon at work and an 8-core FX8350 for myself.
The result? I've got a Asus T100TA on the way: quad core Bay Trail, 2G RAM, 32G flash, 1366x768 display, keyboard, and long battery life, for $235 (refurb). Once I feel like spending more AND all the programs I need on the go will scale, I'll look at the Dell again or the Surface 3 Pro.
I think I can deal with 32G flash size by using the microSD slot and/or a USB 3.0 flash drive (such as the superfast myDigitalSSD models). More comments after I've used it for a while.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
