Arguably, it was Apple who spearheaded the popularity of tablet devices. When it unveiled the original iPad — a sleek, sexy tablet computer unlike anything else in the market at the time — in 2010, demand for tablets rose instantly.
Then, other third-party manufacturers followed suit, lusting to capture a significant chunk of the gestating market.
In recent times, however, desire for tablet devices have dipped. This, in part, is caused by the existence of 2-in-1 devices that can often rival tablets in functionality, features, form factor, power, and, most importantly, price. These days you can get a 2-in-1 laptop for much less money than an iPad Pro.
