Tablet Computers


What exactly is a tablet computer?

Wikipedia does, as usual, a great job of summarizing what exactly a tablet is, what it replaces and what it is used for: "A tablet computer, commonly shortened to tablet, is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, which is usually in collor, processing circuitry, and a rechargable battery in a single thin, flat package. most tablets also have sensors, including digital cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer so images on screens are always displayed upright. The touchscreen display uses gestures by finger or stylus to replace the mouse, trackpad and keyboard used in laptops."
