Five lessons from a year of tablet UX research
Tablet platforms break traditional paradigms of computer and mobile use, shows ethnographic and interview-based research conducted over the last year by UX research firm AnswerLab.
“We have learned that although many people purchased iPads thinking they would be â€œbig iPhones,â€ nearly everyone said the iPad exceeded their expectations.

As a guide for developers, designers, and product managers, we have identified three key trends across our tablet UX research and provide five lessons for creating tablet experiences.”
