What is a tablet PC? Medium sized mobile computer that is integrated with touch screen or stylus Has storing capabilities, internet access and allows the owner to control what is installed
History First patent for a tablet used for handwriting was granted in 1888 The first patent that was used for recognizing handwritten characters by analyzing the writing motion was in 1915 The earliest demonstrated use of a tablet and handwriting recognition is dated to 1956
Modern Tablet PC The first modern models of the tablet PC came into existence around 1980’s Pencept and Linux had some the original tablets available One of the earliest Linux systems was the ProGear by FrontPath (later model of the ProGear)
Modern Tablet PC In 2000 Microsoft coined the term “Microsoft tablet PC” They were targeted to address business needs such as note taking and rugged devices for field work These early devices proved fairly un-popular because they were bulky and cumbersome
The Demand For Tablets When Apple introduced the Ipad in 2010 the popularity of tablet PC’s exploded and has caused a huge boom in the market Companies like RIM (blackberry), Samsung, Toshiba and Motorola have made announcements for their own tablets The market for tablets is expected to go from 7.6 million in 2010 to 46 million in 2014
Touch Screen Interface The key and common component of Tablets is the touch screen interface This gives them a more natural user interface instead of a command line interface or the traditional mouse
Accelerometer Another key feature to tablet PC’s is the accelerometer The accelerometer is what detects the physical movements of the tablet It allows greater flexibility because tablets do not necessarily have a fixed direction of use
Ipad Produced by Apple, was developed before the Iphone but released after because they essentially served the same purpose with the exception of no phone capabilities on the Ipad Controlled 95% of the market on tablets at the end of 2010
Ipad The Ipad is primarily a platform for audio-visual media such as books, movies, music, games and web content Weighs only about 1.5 lbs. heavier than a phone but lighter than a laptop Though there is a built in touch keyboard there is an option for a plug in traditional keyboard
Blackberry Playbook Considered to be an improvement on the Ipad Lighter and sleeker Has been met with positive reviews from technology critics, including from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Tentative release date in fall 2011
Playbook vs. Ipad There has been a lot of hype saying that the Playbook is the Ipad killer The Playbook has a slightly smaller, but higher resolution screen and is lighter It uses Blackberry Tablet OS, powered by QNX technology, the same company used by Cisco and GE
Playbook vs. Ipad The playbook will have “true” multitasking On the Ipad apps can not fully run in the background The Playbook will have the ability to allow apps to run in the background freely
Playbook vs. Ipad The Playbook will also have a 5 megapixel rear facing camera and 3 megapixel forward facing camera It supports a handful of video formats like, DivX, WMV, MPEG It also has a small HDMI port and a standard micro USB port
Playbook vs. Ipad Another major feature is that the Playbook can be used to look at anything on your phone without syncing Email, calendars and BBM (blackberry messenger) are the same on your phone and Playbook
The Future Of Tablet PC’s The future of tablet PC’s looks be very successful and popular With advancing technology and hardware capabilities perhaps someday larger tablets may surpass laptops in popularity With these technologic changes who knows what a tablet could do next…
