Introduction:

Tablets are arguably the biggest phenomenon in the technology sector of the last five years. Before this laptops and PCâs were the only computing devices that were significantly used. 2010 without doubt was the year that the tablet exploded onto the market.

There had been tablets before this year, but it was not until 2010 that tablets really became so popular. This article is going to discuss some of the reasons that 2010 was the breakthrough year for tablets.

1. The iPad

The tablet market owes a great deal to Apple for launching the iPad. Apple have gained over time a reputation as revolutionary in the technology sector and the iPad was truly this. The iPad unlike previous tablets was seen as classy and stylish which led to many people buying it.

The fact a tablet became so successful encouraged companies ranging from Amazon to Sony to make tablets. More companies creating high quality tablets to compete with Appleâs iPad range has meant better tablets for customers and has kept tablets competitively priced.

Higher competition leads to better technology and better prices which is a big reason for tablets being majorly popular still in 2014.

2. Increased Wi-Fi hotspots

One of the main features people using tablets like is that they can browse the internet and check their emails while they are not at home. It is only in the last five years that Wi-Fi capability has been a regular feature in devices such as tablets.

Also Wi-Fi is now available in many places ranging from pubs to coffee shops and even fast food restaurants such as McDonalds. Now that Wi-Fi is so commonplace it has made a way for tablets to be more usable and increase their popularity.

3. Optimised operating systems

As a PC has Windows as its operating system or an Apple Mac has IOS as their operating system a tablet needs an operating system to run. Prior to 2010 most tablets just had what seemed like half hashed put together operating systems that did not work well. This put many people off investing in tablets as the software just did not seem functional or easy to use.

Since 2010 technology companies have learnt this lesson and there are many optimised operating systems made for tablets to allow them to run smoothly.

4. High quality cameras

Since 2010 tablets in the majority of cases have high quality cameras which users love. This was not always the case as previous versions had quite bad cameras and more often than not didnât have any cameras at all.

Modern day tablets can be used to video call with software such as Skype or Facetime. This software is another great feature that prior to 2010 was not available on tablets making them less desirable. The improvement in cameras means many people just use their tablets as cameras. For many this means they actually save money on having to buy a separate camera as they use their tablet as an all in one device.

5. Thinner lightweight designs

As of 2014 we are used to the majority of high range tablets being beautiful in their design. The new iPad Air is less than 0.5 KG for example. Modern day tablets are sleek and thin with high quality materials and cases making them look very aesthetically pleasing.

Tablets have not always been like this and ultimately if an item does not look good people generally will not buy it. Tablet makers learnt this and since 2010 fortunately we can say most tablets look very good.

6. Better touchscreen functionality

For a long time touchscreen technology seemed for the most part very gimmicky. Companies could not seem to find a way for it to work properly or work at all in some cases. Modern tablets have found out how to do this is in a user friendly way and many people love the simplicity modern tablets afford the user with.

7. Better pricing

The fact that there has been such a boom in the tablet market has meant many companies want to have a slice of the market. Even supermarkets such as Tesco are in the market now with their Hudl tablet.

For the customer this is great because there is competitive pricing with a variety of tablets available. There are premium tablets down to basic tablets so anybody can afford one. More competition only means more new features and a better range of tablets on the market for customers.

Conclusion:

As you can see with modern tablets a lot has changed for the better. Many of the issues with tablets from the past have been resolved which has attracted many people to buying a tablet who wouldnât have before. If you have not joined the craze why not go check out the great range of tablets on the market?
