Tablet Glossary

Glossary of Tablet Terms

3G/4G: 3G and 4G are mobile communication technology standards that provide Internet services to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. The "G" stands for each generation of technology, making 4G (or LTE) the faster successor to 3G. Unlike tablets that are only Wi-Fi enabled, those with 3G or 4G will be able to access the Internet (and therefore email, social networks, app downloads, and the like) outside of wireless networks, providing more freedom to use all of your tablet's features. However, that connectivity usually comes with an increased cost, as well as a monthly fee.

Accelerometer: A motion sensor that detects a tablet's orientation. For example, when you turn your tablet from portrait to landscape orientation, the content will generally adjust to fit the screen. This is the accelerometer at work. Some games and apps also incorporate the accelerometer in other ways, though this varies from program to program.

Ambient Light Sensor: Determines how much light is available in the area surrounding your tablet and adjusts the screen brightness accordingly. This conserves battery life, allowing you to get more use out of each charge.

App Store: A digital distribution platform for software, such as the App Store for Apple® or the Google Play market found on Android™ devices. This allows you to download applications, or apps, sometimes for free and sometimes for a fee. Apps will vary by store, operating system, and manufacturer. Most tablets come with some apps preloaded.

Bit/Byte: A bit is the smallest unit of measurement for electronic data. Eight bits equals one byte; approximately 1,000 bytes equals one kilobyte (KB); 1,000 kilobytes equals one megabyte (MB); and 1,000 megabytes equals one gigabyte (GB). These units determine how much information your tablet can store and retrieve.

Bluetooth: A form of wireless communication allowing devices to communicate with each other. For example, a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse might be compatible with a tablet, allowing these components to be used wirelessly.

Bus Speed: Measured in megahertz (MHz), bus speed is the speed or frequency at which the data on the motherboard is moving.

Capacitive Touchscreen: A type of touchscreen display that is very responsive to finger touches, allowing easy swiping, which generally results in an intuitive user interface; however, they won't respond to a gloved hand or stylus. See touchscreen for more information.

Chipset: A set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory, and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer or tablet.

Cloud Storage: Allows data to be stored virtually in storage space hosted by a third party, as opposed to on your physical hard drive. Cloud storage can be advantageous because it may make it easy to share information across devices or among users, as well as freeing up your own physical hard drive space.

DDR (Double Data Rate): A type of SDRAM (memory) that supports data transfers that effectively doubles the speed of the RAM. Double data rate type three (written DDR3), which is currently in use, is twice as fast as its predecessor.

Digital Media: Can refer to the places where digital files are stored (memory cards, hard drives) or the files themselves (photos, videos, MP3s).

eReader: Also called an eBook reader, this refers to a mobile electronic device designed for reading digital books (eBooks). While some tablets exist simply for this purpose, like the most basic Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook models, most modern tablets have an eReader feature built-in, such as the iPad® iBook® app.

Expansion Slot: A slot that allows you to "expand" your tablet functions by using memory cards. Not all tablets have expansion slots, and they're generally more limited than those found in computers.

FaceTime®: A proprietary video calling service from Apple, which comes built into Mac® computers, as well as iPad, iPhone®, and internet-enabled iPod® devices. It functions basically the same as other video chatting services, though is restricted to users with Apple IDs (so you can't use FaceTime on your iPad to call a friend with an Android tablet). FaceTime calls can be made across various devices (iPad to iPhone, iPhone to Mac), so the service is particularly useful to those with multiple Apple devices.

Flash Memory: Sometimes called internal memory on tablets, this refers to how much room you have to store media files like photos, apps, and music. While a computer's hard drive might have hundreds of gigabytes of storage space, a tablet's memory much more limited, a trade-off for being so portable.

Geotagging: The process of adding geographical identification information to media. For example, if you take a photo with a GPS-enabled mobile device, the device may automatically add information about where the photo was taken. Usually, this can be turned on and off in a tablet's settings.

GPS/GLONASS: GPS stands for "Global Positioning System"; you're probably familiar with the ones designed strictly for vehicles, but modern mobile devices usually have some kind of GPS feature installed, eliminating the need for a standalone GPS. Some devices use GPS with GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), which works alongside the GPS to provide faster, more accurate directions.

Graphics Card: Also called a video card, it's what allows the tablet to display pictures.

Gyroscope: Often combined with an accelerometer in a tablet, the gyroscope allows for more accurate recognition of movement. This is particularly useful in motion-controlled apps and certain games, which utilize more advanced controls than those that only use an accelerometer.

Hardware: The physical components of a tablet.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): The uncompressed, all-digital standard used for high-definition (HD) quality for consumer electronics and PC products using a single cable (an HDMI cable).

Hertz (Hz): A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.

High Definition: Means that the screen will be "widescreen" and at least twice as clear as standard definition (which is 480 horizontal lines). Generally, anything at 720 or more horizontal lines will be considered HD; 1920x1080 resolution refers to Full HD; and 4K (or 4,000) horizontal lines refers to Ultra HD.

I/O Ports (Input/Output): The connectors on a tablet that connect its external devices, such as a USB port.

IPS (In-Plane Switching): LCD screen technology was first introduced in 1996 and now used in many displays. IPS technology offers wide viewing angles and consistent, accurate color reproduction without blur.

iSight® Camera: A proprietary camera of Apple, previously an external webcam. Not to be confused with a FaceTime camera, iSight refers to the rear cameras in more recent iPhone, iPad, and iPod models, which generally have a higher resolution than the front-facing FaceTime camera.

LAN (Local Area Network): A set of devices, such as computers, printers, or video games, physically or wirelessly connected for interactive communications wirelessly.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display): A type of display that uses standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. Unlike LEDs, they don't produce their own light.

LED Backlighting: A way of producing light in LCD screens, resulting in a much clearer, brighter, better-looking display.

Level 2 Cache: Often written as "L2 cache," this is a type of memory capable of high-speed storage, enabling quick access to the most recently used data and instructions.

Lightning Port/Cable: The power connector used on Apple devices starting in September 2012 with the iPhone 5, fourth-generation iPad, iPad mini™, 5th generation iPod touch®, and 7th generation iPod nano®. It replaced the 30-pin adapter, with Apple claiming improved functionality and power capacity as reasons for a new proprietary charger.

Lithium-ion/lithium-polymer: A light, rechargeable battery often used in portable electronics such as tablets and smartphones.

Memory: The place where a computer keeps programs and data. This could refer to the hard drive, RAM, or cache.

Memory Card Reader: A device that accesses data on a memory card, such as an SD card.

Motherboard: A tablet's main circuit board. It's the central, essential part of a computer to which most other integrated parts are connected.

Multi-touch: A touchscreen or touchpad, sometimes referred to as multi-gesture, that recognizes two or more fingers, incorporating advanced functionality like pinching to zoom.

Network Card: A network card, network adapter, network interface controller, network interface card, or LAN adapter is a computer hardware component designed to allow computers to communicate over a computer network. It allows users to connect to each other wirelessly or by using cables.

Oleophobic Coating: An oil-resistant coating applied to touchscreens to help reduce fingerprints and smudges.

Operating System (OS): Software that takes care of basic system activities such as reading forms and saving to disk. It controls how system resources are used and provides a user interface. Tablet operating systems are generally optimized for a portable touchscreen experience. Among the most popular mobile operating systems are Google's Android, which can be found on a variety of devices, and Apple's iOS, found on iPhone, iPad, and internet-enabled iPod devices.

Processor: Also known as the CPU (central processing unit). As the primary element carrying out the tablet's functions, it's effectively the "brain" of the tablet. A dual-core processor has two execution cores, while a quad-core has four, etc; generally, more cores allows for faster computing.

Processor Speed: The rate at which the CPU performs calculations per second. It's measured in megahertz (MHz) or gigahertz (GHz). 1000MHz equals one GHz.

RAM (Random Access Memory): The place where a tablet keeps programs and data when they are in use. It's measured in megabytes or gigabytes (see bit/byte for more info).

Resistive Touchscreen: Can typically be used with a finger or stylus, but require pressure to be applied to the screen, which can sometimes affect ease of use. See touchscreen for more information.

Retina Display: A type of LCD screen specific to newer-model Apple MacBook Pro®, iPad, iPhone, and iPod devices. Retina displays have a high enough pixel density that the human eye is unable to notice pixelation at a typical viewing distance. Basically, Retina displays are clearer than typical LCDs.

SATA (Serial ATA): A way of connecting a hard drive to a computer. Most computers made after 2005 use SATA hard drives, which is generally faster and more efficient than SATA's predecessor, PATA.

Screen Resolution: Maximum number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. This number is a product of the number of columns and the number of rows. For example, a display with 1920x1080 resolution can display 1,920 columns of pixels and 1,080 rows of pixels. The higher the resolution, the clearer the screen; see high definition for more info.

Software: The actual programs on a tablet, as opposed to the physical components. This includes apps and the operating system itself.

Solid-State Drive (SSD): Like a standard hard drive, a solid-state drive is used to store data. However, SSDs read and write files much more quickly, resulting in better performance overall. Hybrid drives combine the standard features of hard-disk drives and solid-state drives, resulting in a more optimal performance than a hard drive alone at a better price than a large SSD.

Sound card: A piece of computer hardware that controls its sound input and output.

TFT (Thin Film Transistor): A type of LCD flat-panel display that is made to be as thin and light as possible, taking up less space than bulky old-school computer monitors. TFT displays also generally have higher resolutions than older displays.

Touchscreen: A display you can interact with by touching it with an object, typically a finger or stylus. Touchscreens are one of the defining characteristics of tablets. For more information on different kinds of touchscreens, see capacitive touchscreen, resistive touchscreen, and multi-touch.

USB (Universal Serial Bus): A high-speed serial port technology that allows a variety of input and output devices to be easily attached to a PC. A USB device can be plugged in or unplugged without turning off the PC and is automatically recognized and configured upon plug-in. Typically, modern computers will have USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or some combination of the two. On paper, USB 3.0 is faster, though how much faster will depend on other factors, like your hardware.

Webcam: The term webcam is a combination of "web" and "video camera." They can be used for video chatting or recording videos, and are built into most tablets. Some tablets may even have two cameras, one that faces the front and one that faces the back, with the front being more suited for video chatting.

WiDi: This Intel-developed technology is short for Wireless Display, and lets users to stream music, movies, photos, videos, and apps wirelessly from a compatible tablet to a compatible HDTV or through the use of an adapter with other HDTVs. WiDi technology is capable of Full HD 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound audio, but you'll need the appropriate hardware to achieve that.

Wi-Fi: Wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high speed Internet and network connections. Wireless networks will generally use a 2.4GHz or 5GHz network, with 5GHz networks being able to carry more data. Some devices offer dual-band Wi-Fi, which works at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. Some newer tablets use MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) Wi-Fi, which increases the performance of existing Wi-Fi networks.

Important Information

Wireless capability may require a network connection, accessories, and/or a service fee. Use of Bluetooth technology may require software and accessories. Please consult the manufacturer's documentation regarding the safe and proper use, handling, storage, charging, and disposal of products containing lithium-ion batteries.

T31962 - Meep 7" Children's 8GB WiFi Tablet w/Apps by OregonScientifi 1.7 5 105 105
Dissapointed I as disappointed in the ability to use theses tablets. I bought 2 for my grand-children for Christmas, and waited for them to open and use them, but I was surprised to fine they were very slow, and hard to access. I have high speed internet, and still, very difficult. I was going to send them back, but the children do play a few games on them and will not let them go. so for that reason I kept them. I hope they come out with something better! 03-30-13
Don't Buy!!!! I bought the Oregon Scientific Meep for my nephew as a Christmas present. Within two months the on-off switch was broken. My sister-in-law called the company and was told to return the tablet. When she asked when to expect a replacement they told her 6 to 10 weeks!!! This was not a unique problem. Obviously, the company was aware the switch would break (as evidenced by other reviews ) which makes the 10 week replacement period unsatisfactory. I will steer clear of this company's products in the future. 03-27-13
Needs Improvement My boys ( ages 6 and 9) both received a MEEP for Christmas. I think this could be a good tablet but needs alot of upgrades. 1st, it's very s l o w and downloading/updating any of the games or programs. So any child who is used to playing with their parents phone will become frustrated quickly ( like my children). There are times when the tablet is missing half the ebooks and games that it came with and you have to go back into the "Meep" store and reinstall everything. If you want anything from Google Play you have to set upan email account for your child through gmail which I didnt like. The few good qualities I like are the parental controls. I can set any restrictions I want on the MEEPs even the amount of time they can use it for. I can go online anytime and see what they have been playing and I am the only one who can approve a wanted game. My boys ( and myself) get frustrated all the time with these tablets and do not recommend. 03-19-13
worked 5 mins Read directions and followed. Would not charge.Sent back for a refund 03-14-13
Great Gift This was a gift for the 2 oldest grand children my 9yr old love it, her mother set up the Google acct and now she is able to read from a wide variety of free books. It is also very interactive. Parent & Grandparents take your time when you are setting up electronic products that maybe all that is need. Ps I also purchase a FUN TAB which seems to be working fine also... love hope in a jar, after I clean my face with clairsonic. I use Hope in a jar every day ,out of my Wen I got for the grand children but use it all for me LOL 03-14-13
Love the Meep AS I sit here I have two eight-year-old girls playing with the Meeps Igot them for Christmas. They absolutely love them and love them more all the time. Yes; even with some technological experience they can be a bit confusing initially to get squared away. The key is to not read too much between the lines and follow the directions literally. Yes; if it says the games timed out that is the "samples". Once you set up your WiFi and do the upgrades you can get full versions of games for free and do so much more. I was even reading MY email on the Meep yesterday. I am fully thinking to get a third one for another little girl for her birethday. Yes; you do have to put a little time in setting it up but it is well worth it. 03-09-13
"The greatest buy" My 7-1/2 year old granddaughter is visiting us this weekend and she brought her Meep that we gave her this past Christmas. I asked her if she played with it much and did it work well and she said yes. I asked her if she thought it was a good buy and she said it was "the greatest buy". I would say she is happy with the Meep and so am I. 03-08-13
Very disappointed This was trouble from the get go. I should have returned it. Very difficult to set up controls online. We are unable to play any games because it keeps saying timed out even though I have the parental control set never to do this. I wouldn't recommend this. Wasted my money 03-07-13
Very Dissappointed Ordered this early for a Christmas present for 5 year old granddaughter. She got it day after Christmas, and by January 28, the on off switch broke. Plus according to her Mother it was very hard to try and download games or set up the online account/restrictions. Returned. 02-26-13
The Meep works great for us. I did not have the issues with the Meep that some others have reported. The newest firmware update in early February to version 2.0 has resolved things like black screens, and slowness/freezing. The battery life can be extended by turning down screen brightness and turning off wifi when not in use. You can recover the preloaded content in one step through the Meep Store and you can certainly download the Netflix app through GooglePlay. The interface with Google Play is one of the Meep's best features. You will need your security on low for YouTube and the Web browser as well. There is some setup involved for the Meep because it's designed for you the parent to set up the controls the way you want them. So yes, plan some time to explore how to use the portal and set things up before handing it off to your child. But once you do take the time and learn how it works, the Meep works great. 02-25-13
Works! I bought 3 Meeps for my grandkids for Christmas! Had problems at first getting them setup but the company came through and helped. Also gave 5 free games for the problems at Christmas! Worth the problems as the grandkids love them! 02-18-13
Worst tablet ever! My son got this as a gift for his Birthday. Within 2 months, the power switch on the outside of the meep got stuck so we were unable to turn it on or off. I got it unstuck, but now it is just loose and still no functional. I contacted the company, Oregon Scientific, because it is well within the manufacturer warrant. They are going to send us a new one, but I have to pay for shipping to send the old one back and they won't send a new one out until they receive the other one. And the processing time is 2-3 weeks, so my son could be without his meep for a month! It is also very, very slow. Takes forever to download games on to it and now all the time I spent downloading games I will have to do all over again since they are sending out a new one. Very disappointing! 02-12-13
