Written by John Harris, Updated on October 05, 2023

Tablet computers are wireless portable personal computers that utilize a touchscreen or a stylus pen to access or process information, which are lightweight devices with greater mobility. They also typically have a keyboard and / or a mouse for input, but most of them don’t prefer to use them.

Tablet Computers has an LCD screen on which the user can write the information with the help of a special-purpose pen, or stylus. This handwriting can be digitized and can be converted to standard text through handwriting recognition technique, or it can remain in the same handwritten text format also. This latter ability is known as “rich digital ink” because the inking i.e. writing, scribbling and drawing etc. will be stored as a graphic text after algorithms smooth out rough edges.

The stylus can also be used to type on a pen-based key layout wherein all the keys with letters will be arranged differently than a traditional QWERTY keyboard.

Different Styles of Tablets:

Convertible tablet: This style typically has a display that rotates 180 degrees and can be folded to close and screen up over the integrated keyboard. These models may allow user input through a variety of methods like hardware keyboard, natural handwriting with a stylus or digital pen and even typing using a screen-based software keyboard.

Hybrid table: Sometimes these are also referred as a convertible or hybrid notebook that is like a regular notebook but has a removable display and functions independently as a slate.

Rugged tablet: It is a slate-like model that is designed to resist rough handling and even the extreme conditions. Rugged tablets are usually enclosed in a protective shell and have shock-protected hard drives.
