What happened to Windows tablets?

Half a decade back, Windows 10 tablets were gaining a lot of traction. I saw people using these tablets at my local Toyota dealership. They were all using HP 7 tablets. They worked well and ran Windows 8.1 because they simply could not be updated to Windows 10 due to driver issuers.

Intel never released Windows 10 drivers for Intel Z2700 series. This was same reason I could not update my Acer Iconia W3 to Windows 10 even though it had plenty of power to run it just fine. I call Intel being lazy.

But, what about other Windows tablets? Some were plagued with screen issues. My Acer Iconia W4 which I still own has these issues and it can be a trick to use it on daily basis.

A lot of tablets released in 2015 with Windows 10 had so many issues with screen driver that it turned a lot of people off. At the same time, iOS and Android tablets started to get a lot better in terms of usability and people realized that having ability to run native windows apps on Windows tablets was not enough.

A lot of people, including me flocked to Samsung Galaxy Tablets. I currently use a Galaxy Tab A7 which goes well with my Galaxy Z Fold 3.
