Star Trek had tablets in the 60s.
Thanks to the wonders of television, we also knew in 1966 that the future belong to tablets. Here, we see Lt. Uhura of tne Enterprise using what presumably is an iPad 2255—better known to true Star Trek fans as a Personal Access Display Device (PADD).
Another Star Trek tablet from the 60s.
What's that you say? That's a fixed part of the bridge? Nope. Here's another PADD being carried about by some poor slob wearing a red-shirt and we all know what that means!
Star Trek was still using tablets in the 90s.
And, we can see tablets were still being used in the Star Trek universe in the 1990s with Deep Space Nine.
