40 Tablet Technologies

From iPads to Kindles, Tablets are Must-Haves

— May 18, 2010 — Tech
The iPad isn't the only one of the many tablet technologies on the market. Most likely, if you are reading this, you already know that. Like our phones, our laptops can be touchscreen and our books can be paperless. More and more items are being designed with touch interfaces. This is an ever-evolving world we live in, and tablet technologies definitely offer a step forward.

Implications - The keyboard is a piece of technology that is rapidly becoming antiquated. Consumers want devices that are more compact and powerful than their predecessors. Companies would want to capture a share of the non tech-savvy consumer group should think about how they use gadgets in their everyday life.
