Touching the screen is not just a simple matter, since it can involve up to ten points of contact and a range of touch gestures. Tablet PCs can also incorporate sensors, to detect screen brightness, rotation, tilt and motion, and location and direction. The Tablet PC may include cameras, front and back facing, and may allow storage devices and other components to be attached. You can use them with printers, with networks, over the Internet and for Cloud computing.
