A tablet is a flat computer with a large touch screen, usually starting at 7 inches in size. A tablet is the ideal companion for on the couch as a replacement for the laptop. It is suitable for looking up information, playing games but is also very suitable as a replacement for the PC. Although there are many manufacturers that make tablets, you can roughly divide them into 3 categories; iPads, Android tablets and tablets with Windows.
Perhaps the best known tablet is Apple's iPad. The first Apple iPad was announced by Steve Jobs in 2010. Many manufacturers followed Apple's idea and came up with their own tablet, mostly running under the Google operating system; Android. The iPad is known for its simplicity and ease of use. A child can handle it without any problems. In the beginning, the iPad was often a bit more expensive than the competition, but that price difference has now levelled out. That's not the case with the iPad Pro variant, which is more for business and creative use.
Those who don't have an iPad often have a Android tablet. Google's Android offers tablet support from version 3.0 Honeycomb announced in 2011. In the following years Android became better and better for tablets, although the range of apps still lags behind Apple. Most apps work but are not specially optimized for tablets. The advantage of an Android tablet is that they are available in many versions, types and sizes. Of course with the corresponding price, from low to high. Largest in the field of Android tablets is Samsung that faithfully upgrades her line every year.
