Tablet computers are the result of the desire for our computing devices to become smaller and more
portable (from desktops, to laptops, to tablets), and the evolution of mobile operating systems,
initially introduced for smartphones. The combination of the two has resulted in the birth and
increasing popularity of tablets; they are small, portable for almost any situation, and customizable.
They are also powerful enough to perform most everyday computing functions, such as email, using
the web, word processing and communicating with social networking sites.
