In All Things Digital’s D10 conference, Tim Cook said that Apple invented the modern tablet.
One of the major products launched in recent years by Apple is the iPad tablet.
Until its release, the world didn’t feel any need for a tablet but Apple’s product has changed the perspective of its customers who now plan to give up their PCs or laptops in favor of an iPad.
However, Tim Cook believes that people view tablets as PC, and this thinking is wrong. A tablet can’t do what a PC does and users should not compare them with laptops and notebooks.
Users should be aware that in buying a tablet they are forced to give up on certain features of the PC and choose the advantages of portability and a greater autonomy, but also accept the limitations of the tablet’s operating systems.
