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.

E167174 - Pandigital 7" Color 2GB Android Multimedia Tablet 2.6 5 36 36
It's great! We have 2 and love them!! After reading the other reviews, let me just remind everyone...this is an E-READER!! We bought ours because we are big readers and they are great!! One was a gift or my daughter, and I buy her a Barnes and Noble gift card when she is ready for new books. She just goes to Barnes and Noble on her reader and puts in the card info. She can buy books whenever she wants and always has a total of how much is left in her account. So easy and we didn't buy it for the other web capabilities and hence are not disappointed in the slow speed of opening pages for email, facebook, ebay etc. We are VERY pleased! 02-09-12
B&N Read to Me format for kids books not supported I purchased two of these tablets for my daughters. Barnes and Noble has read to me kids books. The tablet does not support that format. Could read any other books and that was fine. I was not able to update to the android format even after calling support. It still would not work. I was told to try again in 24 - 48 hours. I returned it along with the one tablet that was received with a cracked screen. Too bad because it was a good price and would have been good if it supported that kids read to me format and updated. 01-03-12
Would have been nice 10 years ago First I would only recommend this for people who want to either check their email or something like craigslist and its great for reading a book but other than that I think its completely outdated. It connects to your wireless router but the technology is similar to the mobile network on your phone. And honestly, my phones network is faster than this. It claims to have android software but the android market on this tablet is not the same as on your phone. The apps that ARE available (which are very little apps at all) you don't have a need for. Mine doesn't support all website formats (Java, active x) DOES NOT play youtube videos but it does let you sign into facebook and you're not mobile when you login, so there isn't even a chat available. Screen/Stylus - 3.5/5.0 Mobile Network - 2.0/5.0 Battery Life - 4.0/5.0 Additional Features - 0.0/5.0 09-30-11
E167174 - Pandigital 7" Color 2GB Android Multimed It is just a fancy ebook, not a tablet like some have complained, it is $100. cheaper than the color nook and works just as good and has some extra features. If you want a color ereader and at a good price this is for you, if you think the apps capabilities on this are why you want it, you are buying the wrong item some simple apps from android do work but not all so dont give bad reviews if you didnt do your reserarch 08-26-11
Soooo Disapointed I am not at all thrilled with this purchase!! I cant do anything I want with it. It does not accept my yahoo email address. I wanted to be able to load apps from the android market but nope and come on why not its an android. Not a real big fan of the touch screen my smartphone works much better. I could not wait to get this and really I have only messed with it a couple times because all I do it get mad and frustrated with it. My advise is keep looking. 08-25-11
Very Happy I have been very please with my purchase thus far. I don't necessarily have to sign onto my big computer anymore to find out the things I really need online and that is a big help. I like the book feature also. I just purchased my first book online and so far it has been very easy to read and no more books to carry. 08-25-11
No problems with it I read all of the negative reviews for this and I was not going to order it. Then I find out my sister has had a Pandigital for the last year and has had no problems at all with it. i decided to go with my sister and give it a shot. I got it last week and I have had no problems AT ALL with it. I had no problem connecting to my WiFi. It does not drop my WiFi connection. I am able to surf the web with no problems. Yes, it is a little slow surfing the web but I think people seem to forget that it is not a laptop. It is not supposed to be that fast. It is fast enough though. You are not waiting minutes for pages to load or anything remotely like that. I think the internet access and speed are good enough that I will no longer lug my laptop around on trips, as this will work out just fine. As far as loading the Android Apps, it comes with Slide Me to load Android apps. While Slide Me does not have what the Android market site has, you have to realize that right now the Android Market is only for CELL PHONES. I don't know anyone who has an Android tablet that has been able to get apps from the Android Market. For me, so far, this has been a great little reader and tablet. I would recommend it to my friends. 08-22-11
No problems with unjit, problems with charger I bought this in October 2011, then hubby got laid off a few days before the ereader got to our house..I loved it so much, I kept it even if we really couldn't afford it. Really liked the firmware update, it did so much for the machine, even though I had to learn a whole new OS, it seemed. I carry it around with me a lot. I am handicapped, and the ereader is perfect to while away the hours. I've read over 300 books since last October. Themajor problem has been the power supply. The first one wore out in May 2011, and I called PD. They sent me another one for free, although it took 2 weeks to come. I missed the ereader SO much, I purchased a Nook Color til the charger came. Each machine has it's good and bad points, but money was still short so I tried to sell the ereader on Craigslist, didn't have but one inquiry, about another PD product! Recently, hubby got a job that has lots of boring time, so he has been taking the PD and playing solitare to keep himself awake. NOW, the second power supply has gone out and HE is impatient to wait on the new charger! I guess I'm the first customer at PD to have TWO go out, but BestBuy says it is the charger, so now I'm trying to figure out what to do next. He isn't getting my Nook Color!! The folks at PD have been really nice to me, and the ereader has been dropped, but never broken.. 08-20-11
cute little toy bought this for my little girl and after set it up everything works perfect for the price Iread the reviews before I got it but it,s been good so far and she love,s it 08-20-11
Oh REALLY!!!! I didn't like the product. No flash player to view videos..It wouldn't download app from andriod market...It was a big dissapointment!!!!! 08-17-11
Hate It Brought this as a replacement for my Nook reader which was left on the airplane,it doesn't download any of the apps,is very slow,I hate it,so therefore I'm returning it , replacing it with another a Nook. 08-15-11
Not good at all I just wanted to use it as an ereader and it barely worked at all. When it did work it was very slow. Extremely disappointed. Mine went back immediately. 08-14-11
