Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

Frayed knot on the STPad being the first tablet with a GUI.

The first tablet with a GUI was probably the Sony PTC-500: http://homepage3.nifty.com/Denemon/sony_ptc.htm The PTC-500 was released in 1990. The STPad was first shown in 1991.
