Google has an operating system for tablets, they also make tablets themselves, but Google and Android have never been high on the tablet market. Over many years of development, Android still seems appropriate for smartphones, not a large screen device and do many things. In other words, Google still does not know about tablets like Apple.
Just before Apple was about to launch the iPad in 2010, some companies rushed to launch a competing product. At CES 2010, the HP Slate 8 & 9 launches with Windows 7 PCs, a desktop operating system, and the Intel Atom processor. A few weeks later, Apple released the iPad with screen 9 & quot; 7 and mobile chips, mobile software. Perhaps Google was aware of the problem at that time, they launched an Android version dedicated to tablets called Honeycomb.
Back to the beginning of the tablet, no one knows about the tablet, everything just stopped in speculation. Apple initially positioned the iPad as an electronic magazine similar to the Kindle, but interacted more with its applications, one of the iPad’s user engagements from the e-magazine definition and picture book created. for that platform. Later, Apple found that people use the iPad for many other purposes. Apple initially said no to the keyboard and stylus to the tablet (just like a smartphone) but eventually they accepted the accessories. The development of the iPad is encapsulated in three words: learning, adaptation, and evolution
What did they do then? They succeeded with the Android strategy for smartphones but bringing Android to the tablet was a disaster, a chronic failure for Google. Motorola Xoom, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, Toshiba Excite and other tablets from Acer, Dell, Lenovo, but all are disappointing. Android for tablets is probably only appropriate in some respects for screen devices under 7 & quot; (Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab), or tablet for specific tasks (Amazon Fire HD, NVIDIA Shield Tablet), both of which are more content-oriented than the operating system (OS).
Android is made for smartphones. System configuration requirements are determined based on the capabilities of the smartphone hardware, the application library built into the smartphone screen and the internal ones are also built for use in portrait (portrait) . Android can not expand
Take Android to a 10 “screen device. It is like putting a man 2 meters high into a regular clothing store to pick things up. The 2-meter guy could find some items that fit him like belts, towels, hats … but most did not fit his body. Google recognizes the problem, but instead of tailoring it to Android, they go in a different direction to Chrome OS.
Android is the OS for smartphones and Chrome OS is for computers. And when Google merges Chrome OS with the Android app (on Pixel Slate) it’s a mess. One can say, look it is a laptop, so put the computer software on it. Others, when they see the touch screen, say that it is just a screen phone. Tablet, though in between the smartphone and the laptop, but it also needs to be understood with a definition of independence. To get the perfect tablet experience, you need an OS dedicated to such tasks: intuitive interface for touch is not enough, but must be optimized for large screen, space. Looking to Apple, they made a chip called the X for iPad (developed from A-line chips on the iPhone), because the tablet has a larger performance, longer battery life and more heat, so it needs a separate chip. . They also refined iOS pretty much for specific features on the iPad.
