1. The Touch Screen Is Important A tablet is nothing without a high-quality touch screen. The iPad has it, and customers love it. In order for the iPad's competition to compare on any level with Apple's device, they need to boast the same quality. Not only should the display be big and beautiful, it should also be responsive to a user's every movement. The touch screen makes or breaks a tablet. That must be kept in mind for any company that plans to try its luck against Apple's iPad.
