When Apple released the iPad, it was an extreme success. Apple had sold over 19 million iPads before they even released the second generation of them. People loved the new tablet because of it was extremely lightweight compared to laptops, it was extremely portable, it was touch screen, it was easy to use, and it functioned like a normal computer. Seeing Apple’s success, it seems as if every major computer manufacturer has been trying to compete with it, by releasing their own tablet. More tablets are being made at a faster rate than they previously have been, and it’s only going to increase as time goes by.
