Tablets Overview

Tablet computers or tablets, as they are commonly known have evolved considerably over the past few years and are now beginning to blur the distinction between a laptop and a mobile phone. Though the concept of tablets was floating about in the late 1990s to early 2000s, it was perhaps the launch of the iPad by Apple in 2010 which marked a paradigm shift in how we perceived and used tablets. In the same year, Samsung had launched its own tablet the Galaxy Tab and ever since then the tablet market has exploded considerably.

Apart from the “smart-tablets” like the iPad and Galaxy Tab, there have been numerous other manufacturers who have launched products to compete in that market. Some have launched devices which do not have the versatility of tablets, but have a similar form factor, like the kindle which started out as an e-book reader and now has a lot more features added to it.

Others have taken a step down and have released products targeting a smaller audience with products of very limited functionality like the Boogie Board for instance, which is aimed at being a writing tablet. Its low price and small form factor have made it a popular gift for children who can write, draw and play to their hearts content. And since it costs much less than a regular tablet, you don’t have to worry about your children breaking a $400+ iPad or Galaxy Tab.

That being said, Apple recently launched the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, adding to the number of alternatives in the market.
