A tablet is a portable, flat computer with a touchscreen display.

The tablet is suitable as a personal computer while traveling due to its low weight and compact size. Since no fold-out keyboard is integrated, tablets are less appropriate for writing larger amounts of text. The tablet functions can be expanded by so-called apps. The simple handling, field of application and design are similar to a smartphone.
