Tablets have been present for a few years. Even though they were available, they weren’t as popular because they were hard to use, bulky and had limited battery life. They were also very expensive and only a few could afford them. This changed after the release of the iPad. The iPad was developed by Apple Inc after the success of their iPhones and iPods. They were successful devices that people primarily used for entertainment and light productivity.
The popularity of the iPad made other smartphone manufacturers to compete with Apple. This led to the release of Android powered tablets that were manufactured by Samsung, HTC, Sony and many others. Today, even though tablets are not released regularly like phones, they are very popular and make up a large part of some manufacturers sales. Here’s a list of the best tablets available right now.
