Tablet PC (Tablet Personal Computer) is a portable personal computer with a touchscreen interface that operates by itself. The concept captured a lot of attention especially after Microsoft launched its first Microsoft Tablet PC in 2001, which was not a huge success. Tablet PCs
are different from laptops mainly because they do not have a physical keyboard. Instead, they usually have a virtual keyboard and multiple connectivity options such as the Internet. Similarly, Tablet Computers, commonly shortened to Tablets, refer to a mobile and medium-sized personal computer with a touchscreen and a virtual keyboard or a digital stylus. The term covers a convertible laptop, which is a laptop with a touchscreen that can folds back all the way around or a detached physical keyboard.
The differences between “Tablet Computer” and “Tablet PC”
First of all, a Tablet PC fundamentally uses Intel x86 CPU and may be integrated with PC’s operating system to allow for the touchscreen capability instead of using a keyboard and a mouse, for example, Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux. Additionally, since it is a combination of the Windows operating system and a CPU from Intel, some people refer to it as “Wintel”.
Later in 2010, Tablet PC was replaced by a device that uses a mobile phone operating system instead of Wintel. The device is called a Tablet Computer or simply a Tablet. A tablet uses a capacitive screen rather than a resistive screen in the Tablet PC. The capacitive screen allows multi-touch gesture. Moreover, a tablet uses ARM architecture as a CPU, which is more sustainable than Intel x86. An example of a well-known tablet is an iPad.
