Tablet PCs have become a normal fixture in the lives of people today. People who love their mobile devices and have invested in accessories like the simpleDock USB 3.0 docking station have never been so happy with this turn of events because their businesses have been growing more and more with each new tablet being introduced to the public. A lot of the tablet PCâs success can be credited to the iPad, as it has led the way for the widespread use of tablet computing.

But then, Android-based tablets have also been gaining a lot of attention. This is because Android tablets are relatively cheaper than their counterparts from the more famous brand. Stores that have Kanex Liveâs USB 3.0 docking station among other accessories will show that even the first generation of iPads can still be more expensive than some Android tablets introduced later. Also, you can personalize an Android tablet more, not only with the apps but also with the tweaks you can do to the tabletâs operating software. Of course, it helps that more brands and tablet PC manufacturers use Android as their productsâ operating system to further the platformâs success.

Android as a company was actually established in 2003, but it was not until 2007 that Google acquired the company. Google then developed the Android software as its entry into the mobile device market. The first Android version named after a dessert was Android 1.5, also known as Android Cupcake, in 2009.


It was in 2011 that Google launched Honeycomb or Android 3.0. This software was developed intentionally to be used on tablet PCs. Although Google already had experience with smartphones, Honeycomb was something new for the company. This first iteration of the software was not quite what the tablet PC users wanted, as there were a lot of bugs that needed to be fixed. Thus, there were six versions of the Android Honeycomb.


Android tablet PCs are a whole new genre from the personal computer and the smartphone, which was what Googleâs software was more comfortable with. The Android was their way of giving the tablet PC the distinction that it needed. It was not as powerful as a personal computer because of its task limitations, but was slightly more powerful than a smartphone because of its size and the processor and software.


Android tablets work with the joining of software, a processor chip and the hardware interface of the gadget. All these components make up one of the most sought after gadgets today.

The layers that make Android tablets work are the following:

  • The hardware, composed of processors, sensors, wires and circuit boards.
  • The kernel or firmware, which is software that controls, manages and allocates hardware resources so that the device can follow the userâs orders.
  • Libraries, which are collections of instructions the device follows when processing different types of data.
  • The Android virtual machine; software that creates a virtual operating environment.
  • The application framework, which lay the foundation for all the apps on your Android device
  • The user interface and all the apps on the tablet

So, the next time you use your 4-port iPad charging station, you will have a deeper appreciation for how these gadgets work.
