Tablets are electronic devices that are a little bigger than smartphones and a little smaller than a laptop. These products come in different shapes and sizes which carry the advantage of mobility and function to a great extent like a laptop without having the same hardware and as many components as that of a laptop. Tablets use different operating systems and thus they have different user interfaces. Those tablets which run on Android Operating System come with software such as Gmail, YouTube, Chrome, Drive, preinstalled. iPads utilize the proprietary operating system that Apple uses on its iPhones, that is iOS. Another OS which is quite new and very different from the others is the Chrome OS, designed by the search engine giant Google, keeping mostly those users in mind who are connected to the internet most of the time. Chrome OS is mostly used in two in one laptops which converts into a tablet either by detaching the keyboard or by folding the keyboard behind the touchscreen. Microsoft uses its proprietary Windows OS for its 2-in-1 products, and Windows OS can be used by third parties as well.
Tablets find themselves at its best advantage of portability. Unlike Laptops and desktops which can’t be easily carried from one place to another, tablets enjoy the freedom of easy and safe carriage. It is favourable for the online classes for students, for teachers who teach remotely, employees working from home, and a lot of other categories.
