A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

That's awesome!  I've never owned a tablet, but I might have to get one if they can do stuff like that soon.

Yeah ever since the Surface Pro Microsoft has been my preferred tablet OS. They do lots of nice little improvements like this.

What are your thoughts on the Surface Pro series? I don't like the single USB port and find the included stylus a waste of time. Performance-wise they are pretty quick but with my work, we've had a few that needed to be blown away already. I've run into issues where it won't recognize the keyboard, etc. When everything works great, they are pretty cool, though.

But for the customers, Surface Laptop is the latest product for Surface product line offering and it is my impression that MS has already stopped the research and development of Surface Pro as there is no Surface Pro 5.

Huh... Samsung made an infographic to share what they figured out about the Galaxy Note 7 battery problems. Pretty interesting way to present a root cause analysis to the public.

Agreed! I think it can help restore some of the lost confidence in them as a result of the whole mess.

Plus, it's just kind of neat seeing how such a tiny thing can cause such a massive problem. Most people really have no concept of how complex all this stuff is...
