In the world of computing devices, there is one device that stands out from the rest – the tablet computer.
It seems like tablet computers have been around forever, maintaining their position in the market as being an alternative option to either a smartphone or a laptop. The strengths of a tablet computer are that it combines the mobility and large display of a laptop, while also having the easy-to-use, dynamic touchscreen interface and mobile operating system of a mobile phone.
While having this combination of factors in one device is a great thing, it leaves tablets in a difficult position – to break free from the common conception that they are a device with rather niche applications, they need to offer value and features that give people more reason to switch from their usual devices.
However, as we all know well, the world of digital technology is always moving forward, constantly innovating on the crucial aspects of devices to secure more of a market share – and this means that tablets have improved in their performance and scope over time.
Read on to find out more about recent improvements to tablet computing.
Increased Processing Power
One way in which tablet computers have improved in recent years is in their respective processing powers.
Especially now that high-processing power devices are becoming cheaper and cheaper to produce and the ceiling containing the highest performance components forever on the rise, it’s become easier to install truly impressive processing power within a tablet computer.
It’s expected that as a minimum, the processing power eclipses that of a smartphone – and now, processing components for tablets are verging on laptop-like performance levels.
For example, the Cortex A5 tablet processor was among the first, and it remains a budget option with single core processing and low battery consumption capabilities – however, top of the range tablet processors such as the Cortex A-53 and A-57 are the first generation of quad-core tablet processors, offering laptop and computer-like user capabilities.
More Advanced OS
A big selling point of tablet computer devices is that they are dynamic to use, being both physically mobile to carry around, while also being seamless to complete tasks with or enjoy some entertainment on. The operating system plays a crucial role in this, as this is what defines most of the user experience.
There have been some major recent innovations in the tablet operating system space, with Microsoft, having taken a step back from optimizing Windows for Tablets since Windows 8, releasing Windows 11 for tablets.
Big brands continue to optimize their devices for work and dynamic problem solving, such as the Lenovo College Tablets.
Whatever you’re looking to use your tablet for, whether it be writing essays, creating amazing artwork or as a portable device for work, the tablet accessory market has something to help you achieve that more efficiently.
External keyboards allow tablet users to work with the familiar feel of a physical keyboard, while external power devices allow you to work from your tablet for many hours without concern. There is also a huge range of styluses especially designed to suit your artistic needs.
