  • “iPad” in 2011: A space odyssey\n
  • The RAND tablet, also called the Grafacon (for 'Graphic Converter') was one of the earliest tablet computers and sold for $18,000. 'The attached stylus sensed electrical pulses relayed through a fine grid of conductors housed beneath the drawing surface,\n
  • The tablet officially known as the Atlas DEC PDP 15 was produced for commercial consumption by schools and technology labs. It was obsolete by 1973, as new technologies and platforms became available. The 'typewriter' attached to the system produced a hard copy of the tasks performed.\n
  • Despite its consumer-friendly price, this $650 peripheral for the Apple II platform wasn't a huge success. Edible Apple writes, "Way back before programs like Photoshop roamed the earth, creating pictures on computers was far from a straightforward process. To make things a little bit easier, Apple released a Graphics Tablet in 1979 which enabled users to draw on the tablet with a wired stylus pen and transfer those creations over to their compute\n
  • The GridPad was one of the very first portable tablet PCs (it weighed 5 lbs, a feat for the time). The touchscreen device, priced at $2,370, reportedly inspired Jeff Hawkins to create the Palm Pilot. What happened to it? "By tablet standards, the GRiDPAD—-which was designed for businessy applications such as data collection in the field—-was well reviewed and seems to have sold reasonably well. But AST (which bought GRiD Systems from Tandy, which had acquired it in 1988) ran into trouble in the mid-1990s. When it collapsed, the GRiDPAD disappeared," Technologizer explains.\n
  • An early tablet that ran on the PenPoint operating systems for tablets and PDAs. It cost a whopping $4,765. In 1991, the New York Times said of the gadget, "The NCR Corporation has introduced an intriguing pen-based 'notepad' computer that is truly ahead of its time."\n
  • The 'PC' stands for 'personal communicator'. This $1,599 portable tablet, which also ran on the PenPoint OS, came with an integrated celluar phone, a modem and fax, a hard drive, speakers and a microphone.\n
  • eleased in 1993, the Newton was one of the first PDAs (personal digital assistants) on the market. Early models were bulky, expensive and bug-ridden. Apple marketed the Newton poorly, and it was widely ridiculed; a memorable Doonesbury strip by Garry Trudeau effectively doomed the device.) Later models were vastly improved, but the Newton never took off." The Newton line was discontinued by 1998.\n

  • Bill Gates himself debuted this Compaq tablet PC at a tech fair in 2001, predicting that tablets would dominate the PC market within five years. The device helped popularize the term 'tablet PC.'\n
