Microsoft introduced the concept for tablets, Apple took it to the next level (and in the process also claimed that they 'invented' the tablet), and now Android will take tablets to the next level, into the future.
Samsung is working on display technologies which will make these tablets flexible (just like the paper magazines) and even transparent.
According to a Samsung post, "Tablets have come a long way since the first ones hit the market in 2010, but there's still plenty of room for new innovations. In the near future, expect tablets to come fitted with augmented geo-location services, and gesture-controlled digital magazines, among many other features!"
Here is a 'preview' of what will be the future of Android tablets.
