History Of The Tablet : a lot had been tried since 1987 and before Jobs "picked" the idea

History Of The Tablet : a lot had been tried since 1987 and before Jobs "picked" the idea | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

Tablets have killed the netbook market and are fast transforming the traditional PC.

 

Apple's iPad gets most of the credit for that, but the tablet computer was not Steve Jobs' idea. Tablets actually began decades before the iPad was launched in 2010.

 

Look at all the previous attemps including the Newton, the Palm Pilot, ...

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Interesting history, that misses a few iconic devices such as IBM's Simon, Eo's Personal Communicator, or the General Magic / Sony's Magic Pad...

We found the video after venture capitalist MG Siegler embedded it on his blog.

 

It's pretty insane how far things have come in the last 20 years.

Remember that Pizza Hut was the first e-Commerce site (Maslow is never far) ?

On your screenshot it shows 1996 if I am not midsdtaking, in 1995 I am not sure France was not still protecting its juicy minitel market. The interview of John Markoff was 1995 though but that was in the US and the Internet was already commercially available since at least 3 years. "A tout seigneur tout honneur" and it certainly doesn't go to France ;->
