The F750 is a compact and rugged handheld mobile computer that meets the demands of tough field operations.It meets military standards for humidity, dust, vibration,drops, and extreme temperatures.At the same time, it integrates 1D barcode scanner, QR code/QR code scanner, NFC, PSAM encryption and other Internet of Things functions.
A tablet computer, often simply called a tablet, is a mobile device that typically has a mobile operating system and touchscreen display processing circuitry, as well as a thin, flat rechargeable battery.A tablet is a computer that can do what other personal computers do, but lacks some of the input/output (I/O) capabilities that others have. Modern tablets are largely similar to modern smartphones, the only difference being that tablets are relatively larger than smartphones, with screens measuring 7 inches (18 cm) or larger diagonally,and may not support access to cellular networks.Unlike laptops, which traditionally run operating systems typically designed for desktops, tablets often run mobile operating systems alongside smartphones.A touchscreen display is operated by gestures performed by a finger or digital pen (stylus), rather than the mouse, touchpad, and keyboard of a larger computer.Laptops can be classified based on the presence and appearance of a physical keyboard. Tablets and brochures,two types of tablet computers that do not have a physical keyboard,typically accept text and other input by using a virtual keyboard displayed on a touchscreen display.To make up for the lack of a physical keyboard, most tablets can connect to a separate physical keyboard via Bluetooth or USB; 2-in-1s have keyboards, unlike tablets.The tablet form factor was conceptualized in the mid-20th century (Stanley Kubrick depicted the fictional tablet in the 1968 sci-fi film A Space Odyssey) and prototyped in the last two decades of that century and development. In 2010, Apple released the iPad, the first mass-market tablet to achieve widespread adoption.Since then, tablets have exploded in popularity and soon became a large product category for personal,educational, and workplace applications.Popular uses of tablets include viewing presentations, video conferencing, reading e-books, watching movies, sharing photos, and more. According to data provided by Statista, as of 2021, there will be 1.28 billion tablet users worldwide.The tablet market is relatively evenly split between Apple's iPads and Android tablets, with the iPad capturing slightly more global market share due to its quality and frame rate.
Fictional and Prototype Tablets
Tablets appeared in several works of science fiction in the second half of the 20th century; all of which helped popularize and spread the concept to a wider audience.Examples include:
Isaac Asimov describes a calculator pad in his novel The Foundation (1951).
Stanisław Lem described Opton in his novel Star Returns (1961).
Many similar devices are depicted in Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek: The Original Series (1966).
Arthur C. Clarke's newspaper appeared in Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
Douglas Adams describes a tablet computer in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and related comedy of the same name (1978).
The tablet computer in the sci-fi TV series Star Trek:The Next Generation,designated PADD, is known for using a touchscreen interface (like most computers in the show), with and without a stylus (1987).
A Device More Powerful Than Today's Tablets Was Briefly Appeared A Mote In God's Eye (1974).
A data pad in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the 1991 novel "Heir to the Empire" and featured in the 1999 feature film "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace".
Additionally, real-life projects have proposed or created tablets such as:
KiddiComp was conceived by computer scientist Alan Kay in 1968;he developed and described it in his proposal "A Personal Computer for Children of All Ages" (1972)The concept was developed as a dynabook, which outlines similar capabilities to those offered by a laptop or (in some of its other forms) a tablet or tablet, except for near-eternal battery life. The target audience is children.
In 1979, the idea of a touchscreen tablet was filed in Japan by a group at Hitachi consisting of Masao Hotta, Yoshikazu Miyamoto, Norio Yokozawa, and Yoshimitsu Oshima,who later received a US patent for their idea.
In 1992, Atari showed developers the Stylus, later renamed the ST-Pad. Based on the TOS/GEM Atari ST platform, the ST-Pad was an early prototype for handwriting recognition. Shiraz Shivji's company Momentus also demonstrated a failed x86 MS-DOS-based pen computer with its own graphical user interface (GUI).
In 1994, the European Union launched the NewsPad project, inspired by the fiction of Clark and Kubrick.  Acorn Computers developed and delivered an ARM-based touchscreen tablet for the program, dubbed the "NewsPad"; the project ended in 1997.
During COMDEX in November 2000, Microsoft used the term Tablet PC to describe a prototype handheld device they were showing.
In 2001, Ericsson Mobile Communications announced an experimental product called the DelphiPad,developed in collaboration with the Singapore Wireless Communications Centre, featuring a touch screen, Netscape Navigator as the web browser,and Linux as the operating system.
Android was the first tablet-dominating platform to hit the market in the 2000s.In 2008, plans for the first Android-based tablet appeared.The first products were released in 2009.These included the Archos 5, a pocket-sized model with a 5-inch touchscreen, which first released a proprietary operating system and later (2009) Android 1.4.Camangi WebStation was released in the second quarter of 2009.The first LTE Android tablet appeared in late 2009, manufactured by ICD for Verizon.This unit was called the Ultra, but a version called the Vega was released around the same time.The Ultra has a 7-inch display, while the Vega has a 15-inch display. More products were launched in 2010. Several manufacturers wait for Android Honeycomb, which is exclusively for tablets, debuted in February 2011.Apple is often credited with defining a new consumer device with the iPad,it shaped the tablet business market for years to come,and was the most successful tablet at the time of its release.The iPad and competing devices were tested by the U.S. military in 2011 and cleared for safe use in 2013.Its debut in 2010 propelled tablets into the mainstream.Samsung's Galaxy Tab and other products In March 2012, PC Magazine reported that 31% of US internet users own a tablet, primarily for viewing published content such as videos and news.The best-selling device line is Apple's iPad, with 100 million units sold between its release in April 2010 and mid-October 2012,but the iPad's market share (number of units) fell to 36% in 2013 , Android tablets climbed to 62 percent. Android tablet sales were 121 million in 2012 and 52 million in 2013.Individual brands of Android OS devices or compatibles followed the iPad with Amazon's Kindle Fire at 7 million sales and Barnes & Noble's Nook at 5 million.
Released in September 2010, the BlackBerry PlayBook runs the BlackBerry Tablet OS.The BlackBerry PlayBook was officially released to consumers in the United States and Canada on April 19, 2011.HP announced the June 2011 release of the TouchPad running WebOS 3.0 on a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. On August 18, 2011, HP announced the discontinuation of the TouchPad due to sluggish sales. In 2013, the Mozilla Foundation and Foxconn announced a prototype tablet model running on Firefox OS.Firefox OS was discontinued in 2016. Canonical hints that Ubuntu will be available on tablets in 2014.In February 2016, a commercial version of the BQ Aquaris Ubuntu tablet using the Ubuntu Touch operating system was released.Due to lack of market interest, Canonical terminated support for the project on April 5, 2017, which was subsequently adopted by UBports as a community project.As of February 2014, 83% of mobile app developers were targeting tablets,but 93% were targeting smartphones. According to a survey report by Corporate Visions, by 2014, approximately 23% of B2B companies were said to have deployed tablets for sales-related activities, iPads account for the majority of users in North America, Western Europe, Japan, Australia, and most of the Americas. Android tablets are more popular in most of Asia (except China and Russia), Africa and Eastern Europe. Tablet sales did not grow in 2015. Apple remained the top seller, but its market share fell below 25%.Samsung Vice President Gary Riding stated in early 2016 that tablets only performed well among people who used them for work. Newer models are pricier and designed for keyboards and stylus, reflecting a change in usage. As of early 2016, Android dominated the market with a 65% market share. Apple came in second with a 26 percent share, and Windows came in third with the remaining 9 percent. Of the 4.4 billion computing devices in 2018, Android accounted for 2 billion, iOS 1 billion, and the remainder PCs, in various form factors (desktop, laptop, or tablet), running various operating systems (Windows, macOS, ChromeOS, Linux), etc.).
