And if it won't cost more than normal tablet (of nice range) and I will buy! I guess it will be possible in like 10 years.. ;) But then the computer would be even better... The eternal chase.

I use the RCA 10" W101 for tablet testing games.

It has a cheap graphics card and sounds are terrible but I figure if my games can be played and heard on that they should be great on a better system and at $150 it was affordable. I take it with me when lugging the laptop is a pain.

Keep in mind most of your customers are probably kids not using a high end tablet.

For testing, sure. For testing it is better to test on the widest variety of devices as possible.
But for development, should exist "the sacred one" - almighty and easy to use.

Yes, most of my customers don't use high end tablets, no, most of my customers are 30+ :)

What about Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3 Pro?
Sounds very promising, ~500$, 4gb ram, 1.4 quad processor busting up to 2.4ghz, 8GB graphic processor 600MHz, 64gb storage, long live battery, android...
Also with projector - it sound cool to play your game on the the wall while controling on your lap.

I am using a Wacom Intuos Medium Comic touch tablet. You can draw anything easy with a cordless pen. You can also use your fingers to move around. Especially with brushes and the pressure sensitivity it is a very nice tool.

For a lot of other activities, you can also use such kind of tablets. Just see it as a big mouse.

Last year I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome operations at each hand. There where complications with my left hand so it was (and still is) difficult for me to use a computer. I bought this tablet a few months ago and have no regrets about it. It really helps me being creative again without too much pain.

I also use it with Construct 2 especially with selection lists, sprite animation dialog, moving things.

Very practical and helpfull

Please accept my apology, somewhere along the line I was misunderstanding.

My former post was about a Drawing tablet which has nothing to do with the tablets mentioned here.
