Tablet PCs are prevalent these days, long gone are the times where they were large, bulky, slow, short lived, and expensive. Almost everyone has a tablet in some form, be it an iPad, an Android tablet, or a Amazon Fire. The problem is tablets were always meant as a stop gap, never a permanent solution. Not so much the concept of a tablet, but the mobile oriented operating systems that drive them. Both android and iOS came at a time when full powered tablet PCs with a full OS like Windows or OSX were not feasible, though many certainly tried. At some point the tablet OS will die.
