There was a time not too log ago when a personal computer meant a rather bulky desktop unit. This gave way to the laptop to some extent - lighter in weight than desktop units, but which still could feel heavy after carrying it around for awhile. The iPod, of course, made entertainment portable, which was then followed by the iPhone, making communication even more portable and user-friendly. Several other smartphones also have taken off, so what could be left? The answer is the tablet, led by the iPad and its spinoff, the iPad mini.
Consider some of these statistics:
For viewing video and reading text, these are possible on smartphones but the user experience is generally much better on the larger screen of the tablet. Laptops might be portable, but they can still be cumbersome. Tablets fall somewhere in the middle, which helps explain why they have become so popular so fast.
