This is an increasing trend. People carrying around their huge tablets to take pictures, or worse, videos. I can completely understand taking snapshots with your phone, but not with tablets. I fail to comprehend this.

Yes, it looks awkward. But I guess if people want to look at their pictures/videos on the tablets, shooting with one device and then transferring to another becomes a hassle (althoguh with all those cloud sync features it should not matter).

Yes, I can definitely agree that that is one reason.  I have older parents who have an iPad, and if they want photos or videos on their iPad (which they usually do), they just find it a heck of a lot easier to use the iPad's camera to begin with!  It saves them the hassle of having to transfer files from one device to another!  I'm sure a LOT of people feel the same way.  So in reality, for many people it's actually MORE convenient to just use a tablet to take a photo than to use a phone or a dedicated camera.
