Researchers developed the tablet which would have been a replacement for the laptop. Call this uber-convenience. The tablet is a small hand-held device that has a display (often 9” and even bigger) with a processing unit, memory, storage, a set of speakers, microphone, slots for an extendable storage slot, and a telecommunication chip all rolled into one neat flat thin unit. All tablets have touch control.
In the absence of any other input device that becomes crucial. It is smaller than a laptop and larger than a mobile phone/smartphone.
In some cases, tablets don’t have the option to plug in a telecommunication chip and therefore not be able to make or receive calls using the cellular network.
However, the introduction of phablets has blurred that second demarcating boundary. There are a number of great designs and products that adorn the tablet industry. None better than Apple’s iPad. Samsung also has a range of good tablets to offer.
