Background and Identification
Building on the idea that smaller is better, many companies decided that even a laptop could be made more portable, and the era of tablets was born. While most tablets have a few buttons, they tend to utilize touch-screen technology. Tablet computers come in a range of sizes and are manufactured by many different companies.
Vivitar Corporation is a manufacturer and marketer of photographic and optical equipment. Since 2008, the Vivitar name has served as Sakar International’s brand for digital imaging, optics, mobile accessories, and audio products, including tablet computers.
A sure-fire way to identify that you are holding a tablet in your hands is by checking to see if it is able to be held in your hands. Tablets are generally bigger than mobile cellular devices, with screens in the 7-inch to 11-inch range, but smaller than laptops and without the folding capabilities.
Android tablets incapsulate any tablet computers running on the Android OS operating system. Tablets occupy the weird space in between phones and computers, functioning as larger mobile devices that rely primarily on touch input, although some models have the functionality to attach additional peripherals. Android tablets can be largely identified as any tablet computer not using either Windows OS or iOS.
Vivitar tablets typically include the name “Vivitar” in the bottom center of the tablet’s backing. Generally, a sticker is placed underneath this name with additional identification information, including the device’s model number.
