THE EVOLUTION OF THE TABLET mobile MADHOUSE 1972 1979 1989 1993 2001 APPLE GRAPHICS TABLET DYNABOOK GRIDPAD APPLE NEWTON MESSAGE PAD INTEL WEB TABLET 40000o The Dynabook , created in 1968 by computer scientist Alan Kay,was a prototype and never an actual product, but itwas the blueprint for the modern laptop and tablet PC. While desktop computing flourished in the 1980s, tablet innovation crawled along. But the GRiDpad, appearing in 1989, was an early breakthrough. It was the device aimed to redefine personal computing. However, its initial launch was plagued with complaints about price, weak battery life and handwriting recognition that didn't really work. A stylus-driven touchscreen device, the Web Tablet ranon an Intel StongARM 1110 processor and was designed for viewing content on a connected PC, using Intel's AnyPoint wireless technology. Back in the late '70s the iPad was starry-eyed science fiction. But Apple had some ideas and commissioned a device called the Apple Graphics Tablet. 2006 2010 2010 2013 2014 SAMSUNG Q1 APPLE IPAD IPAD AIR 2 MICROSOFT SURFACE PRO 2 SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB It was the first machine to launch into the new Ultra Mobile PC category and it definitely made astatement with its sleek and stylish design. Offering a beautifully designed 9.7-inch device containing thousands of apps, the iPad was reasonably priced (starting at $500) with different storage, Wi-Fi and 36 options. One of the first Android devices released post-iPad. With its 7-inch screen, the Galaxy Tab was smaller than the iPad and could be held comfortably in one hand. A faster, longer-battery-life version of the original model, upgraded with a faster processor. The keyboard cover is improved with backlit keys and the best tablet accessories ever devised. The iPad Air 2 is a spectacular achievement. Faster, better looking and more feature packed than ever, it's the slate to beat and we suspect it will be for a while yet.
