Many people believe that tablets also permanently changed the way the computer industry works.

Same Function Different Size

Tablets managed to be so popular due to the fact that they have similar functions to a laptop, but they are easier to use, are lightweight and more convenient for travel. Also, we see that lately we are becoming more and more attached to touch screen devices thanks to the fact that it is much easier to use – it also looks cool.

Its size and the fact that it is so user-friendly has definitely changed the computer world. For example, many companies have realized that, in order to be successful, they had to make gadgets for the whole family. Before the tablet era PCs were very difficult to use for older generations and even for some adults. The mighty tablet changed all of this, however.
