Of Tablet Pcs
1.Introduction to tablet
A tablet personal computer (tablet PC) is a portable
personal computer equipped with a touch screen as a primary
input device, and running a modified desktop OS such as
android or iOS. The term was made popular as a concept in
the years 2000 and 2001, but tablet PCs now refer to any
tablet-sized (approx. 7" screen size) personal computer
regardless of the operating system.
Incidentally, according to dictionary.com, tablet refers
to a number of sheets of writing paper, business forms,
etc., fastened together at the edge; pad. Tablet personal
computers are mainly based on the x86 IBM-PC architecture
and are fully functional personal computers, supporting
their touch-screen, instead of a traditional display, mouse
and keyboard. A stylus is preferred to operate a tablet
computer, because operating the typical desktop based OS
requires a high precision to select GUI widgets, such as
a close window button.
