Everyone is talking about tablet computers but what are they and what can they do. A tablet is a handheld all in one computer with a touch screen display. What makes the tablet different from a standard laptop or desktop is that everything you do on it is done by the touchscreen. The touch screen display makes using a tablet much more enjoyable and comfortable compared to a standard mouse and keyboard.
