New Affordable Tablets Coming Soon

Despite the growing number of choices in the tablet market, where nearly every company has multiple options for customers to choose from, there are two big names for tablets: iPad and Kindle. A few years ago, it would have been inconceivable for Amazon to enter the tablet computer market, but with the success of the Kindle e-reader, the Kindle Fire tablet took the 2011 fourth quarter by storm. Amazon’s sales of the Kindle Fire were boosted, in part by the $199 price tag.  Compared to Apple’s iPad at $499, the Kindle Fire seemed like a real value to consumers.  Now, other tablet computer manufacturers are following Amazon’s lead and offering more affordable options than Apple Computers.

Tablets And Taxis

For anyone who lives in – or has visited – New York City, you probably know about the televisions that are in the back of many taxi cabs. A significant number of taxi companies in New York City have installed televisions in their cabs that play a select set of programming for the taxicab riders.

iPad – Plain And Simple

Apple’s new device is not the iPad 3, iPad HD, or The New iPad. “iPad” is its whole name, even though this is the third model in what may prove to be a long line of devices. With such a universally-recognized device, it sometimes helps to re-establish brand awareness and market dominance.  By calling it simply “iPad,” Apple reminds consumers that they were the first and definitive tablet computer manufacturer.  That type of nod to the market power of the iPad could not have been done with a name like third-generation iPad, iPad 3, or iPad HD.

Before There Were Tablet Computers, There Were Computer Tablets: Wacom Still Makes Them Cool!

For digital artists, the term “tablet computer” has an entirely different meaning than the term has for most of the rest of the population.  Long before Apple released the iPad or Amazon flooded the market with e-readers that have come to be lumped in with tablet computers, there was a peripheral for computers called a tablet.  Wacom still makes tablets, which remain an invaluable tool for digital artists.  One of the best tablets on the market is the Wacom Intuos5 touch Large Pen Tablet.

The History of Tablets 2 – iWant an iPad

In the previous blog in this series, we discussed that although the concept of tablets had existed for decades, self-contained portable computers were never possible until advances in technology caught up to the idea. Manufacturers tried their best to give consumers what they wanted, but the technology and the market were simply not ready yet. In the early 2000s, however, the market began to see an upsurge in tablets.

This upsurge was driven by Microsoft’s rededication to the tablet concept. The computer giant released a set of guidelines for manufacturers to build tablets using a tablet-specific version of Windows called Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. These newer tablets more closely resembled the tablets currently on the market than the previous generation of tablets.

These devices featured touch screens, video playing capabilities, Internet connectivity, and lighter designs. With the new technology came more complete mobile computer support as well. They were not quite up to the abilities tablets would have in only a few years, but it was a great start.
