The tablet used by Nurse Chapel in Star Trek, is one of many props that made scientists develope real functional products. I often refer to the Linus write-top as the first tablet back in the early 80's while not as advanced, it was able to detach from the base station for portability. Poor sales contributed to the end of further developement. The large scale offering of tablets would be through the use of delivery drivers from UPS, FedEx and trucking companies for major vendors long before the iPad.

I like to joke that Steve Jobs totally ripped off the tablet idea from Ohio Arts' Etch n Sketch. An culmination by a French inventor named Andre' Cassagnes . After all, it was in essense, the first tablet with a functional screen.
