Apple tablet: a new trend in the digital market

It’s no longer a surprise to see new gadgets in the market but the problem is, Apple always take the lead. And for quite some time now, they launch a the new soon-to-be-obsession, Apple tablet.

The concept was first coined by Doctor Sam Hurst of Elo TouchSystem back in 1971, where he develop the first “touch sensor” during his lecturing days in the University of Kentucky. But sadly, no one saw the potential in creating a 100% touchscreen computer.

But Apple took the idea differently and develop a touchscreen tablet that specializes in surfing, e-reading, e-mail and instant messaging. On top of that, it comes with ready-to-download applications similar to the sister product, the iPhone.

Reasonably, it comes with Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB ram and nVidia GeForce 9400M graphic card for the price of a netbook, and as for gaming, it will beautifully support most of the mmorpg games available, only problem is, it doesn’t come with a keyboard.

Speaking of gaming, the machine compensate battery life for up 6 hours and 12 if you're easy on the gadget, which mean, rushing at 100th level would come handy.

Still, there are many alternative out there that tries to copy the idea before Apple's debut but alas, many have tried and failed.

Below are the initial responses from the competitive brands ever since the idea leaked.

HP Touch-Mini

Samsung Q1 Tablet

And today happen to be the official launch of the Apple Tablet.

Till then,
Enjoy the read.
