The Evolution of the Tablet

Since the first iPad was introduced in April of 2010, tablets have become stronger, faster and more technologically advanced. But, when Steve Jobs and Apple launched the first iPad, tablets were met with some skepticism because they were unfamiliar to consumers. In recent times, tablets have become “all the rage” with tech aficionados and consumers who are looking for a way to stay “connected” while traveling, shopping, working or at home. The iPad is the best way to take games, applications, and documents with you on the road which makes staying organized more convenient than ever. Fun, education and web surfing are just a touch screen away, and it is all thanks to the recent advent of tablets, namely the Apple iPad.


With the popularity of the first iPad, the iPad 2 was unveiled in March of 2011. The 10 hour battery life and price point were similar, but many features had improved. It was lighter than the first iPad, twice as fast, and there were new features including a front and back camera that worked with the advanced Face Time video calling capability. Sales were booming for the iPad 2 and Apple decided to discontinue the first iPad allowing only sales for the iPad 2 to grow.


In March 2012, Apple introduced the iPad 3. It was a more “beefed up version of the first two and took extreme to an entirely new level with a new dual core A5X processor and quad core graphics. This third generation iPad also featured retina display with 50 percent more pixels than any other tablets on the market.


The iPad in general has paved the way for tablets to gain popularity. They make life easier for consumers and have become a more essential, time-saving device that serves numerous uses and functions.
