Global Increase in the Sales of Tablet

A tablet com­put­er, com­mon­ly short­ened to tablet, is a thin, flat mobile com­put­er with a touch­screen dis­play, which in 2016 is usu­al­ly col­or, pro­cess­ing cir­cuit­ry, and a recharge­able bat­tery in a sin­gle device. Tablets often come equipped with sen­sors, includ­ing dig­i­tal cam­eras, a micro­phone, and an accelerom­e­ter. The touch­screen dis­play uses the recog­ni­tion of fin­ger or sty­lus ges­tures to replace the mouse, track­pad and key­board used in lap­tops. They usu­al­ly fea­ture on-screen, pop-up vir­tu­al key­boards for typ­ing and inputting com­mands.

Tablets may have phys­i­cal but­tons for basic fea­tures such as speak­er vol­ume and pow­er, and ports for plug­ging in net­work com­mu­ni­ca­tions, head­phones and bat­tery charg­ing. Tablets are typ­i­cal­ly larg­er than smart­phones or per­son­al dig­i­tal assis­tants with screens 7 inch­es (18 cm) or larg­er, mea­sured diag­o­nal­ly. Tablets have Wi-Fi capa­bil­i­ty built in so that users can con­nect to the Inter­net and can have cel­lu­lar net­work capa­bil­i­ties.

Tablets can be clas­si­fied accord­ing to the pres­ence and phys­i­cal appear­ance of key­boards. Slates and book­lets do not have a phys­i­cal key­board and text input and oth­er input is usu­al­ly entered through the use of a vir­tu­al key­board shown on a touch­screen-enabled dis­play. Hybrids, con­vert­ibles and 2-in-1s do have phys­i­cal key­boards (although these are usu­al­ly con­ceal­able or detach­able), yet they typ­i­cal­ly also make use of vir­tu­al key­boards. Most tablets can use sep­a­rate key­boards con­nect­ed using Blue­tooth.

I real­ly like using my Sam­sung (005930:KS) tablet. I pre­vi­ous­ly used the Motoro­la Xoom for a while and liked that.

The for­mat was con­cep­tu­al­ized in the mid-20th cen­tu­ry (Stan­ley Kubrick depict­ed fic­tion­al tablets in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey) and pro­to­typed and devel­oped in the last two decades of that cen­tu­ry. In April 2010, the iPad was released, which was the first mass-mar­ket tablet with fin­ger-friend­ly mul­ti-touch and a ded­i­cat­ed oper­at­ing sys­tem. In the 2010s, tablets rapid­ly rose in pop­u­lar­i­ty and ubiq­ui­ty and became a large prod­uct cat­e­go­ry used for both per­son­al and work­place appli­ca­tions.
The tablet com­put­er and its asso­ci­at­ed oper­at­ing sys­tem began with the devel­op­ment of pen com­put­ing. Elec­tri­cal devices with data input and out­put on a flat infor­ma­tion dis­play exist­ed as ear­ly as 1888 with the telautograph,[8] which used a sheet of paper as dis­play and a pen attached to electro­mechan­i­cal actu­a­tors. Through­out the 20th cen­tu­ry devices with these char­ac­ter­is­tics have been imag­ined and cre­at­ed whether as blue­prints, pro­to­types, or com­mer­cial prod­ucts. In addi­tion to many aca­d­e­m­ic and research sys­tems, sev­er­al com­pa­nies released com­mer­cial prod­ucts in the 1980s, with var­i­ous input/output types tried out:
