Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
c.1300, "slab or flat surface for an inscription" (especially the two Mosaic tables of stone), from Old French tablete "small table, merchant's display counter" (13c., Modern French tablette), diminutive of table "slab," or from Medieval Latin tabuleta (source also of Spanish tableta, Italian tavoletta), diminutive of Latin tabula (see table (n.)). The meaning "lozenge, pill" is first recorded 1580s; that of "pad of writing paper" in 1880.
n. 1 A slab of clay used for inscription. 2 (context religion English) A short scripture written by the founders of the Bahá'í faith. 3 A pill; a small, easily swallowed portion of a substance. 4 (context computing English) A graphics tablet. 5 (context computing English) A tablet computer, a type of portable computer. 6 (context Scotland English) A confection made from sugar, condensed milk and butter. vb.

A tablet is a pharmaceutical dosage form. Tablets may be defined as the solid unit dosage form of medicament or medicaments with or without suitable diluents and prepared either by molding or by compression. It comprises a mixture of active substances and excipients, usually in powder form, pressed or compacted from a powder into a solid dose. The excipients can include diluents, binders or granulating agents, glidants (flow aids) and lubricants to ensure efficient tabletting; disintegrants to promote tablet break-up in the digestive tract; sweeteners or flavours to enhance taste; and pigments to make the tablets visually attractive or aid in visual identification of an unknown tablet. A polymer coating is often applied to make the tablet smoother and easier to swallow, to control the release rate of the active ingredient, to make it more resistant to the environment (extending its shelf life), or to enhance the tablet's appearance.
The compressed tablet is the most popular dosage form in use today. About two-thirds of all prescriptions are dispensed as solid dosage forms, and half of these are compressed tablets. A tablet can be formulated to deliver an accurate dosage to a specific site; it is usually taken orally, but can be administered sublingually, buccally, rectally or intravaginally. The tablet is just one of the many forms that an oral drug can take such as syrups, elixirs, suspensions, and emulsions. Medicinal tablets were originally made in the shape of a disk of whatever color their components determined, but are now made in many shapes and colors to help distinguish different medicines. Tablets are often stamped with symbols, letters, and numbers, which enable them to be identified. Sizes of tablets to be swallowed range from a few millimeters to about a centimeter.

A tablet, in a religious context, is a term used for certain religious texts.
Tablet (taiblet in Scots) is a medium-hard, sugary confection from Scotland. Tablet is usually made from sugar, condensed milk, and butter, which is boiled to a soft-ball stage and allowed to crystallize. It is often flavoured with vanilla or whisky, and sometimes has nut pieces in it.

Tablet magazine is an American Jewish general interest online magazine sponsored by Nextbook. Launched in June 2009, it is the successor magazine to Nextbook (2003–09).
Tablet magazine runs several new pieces each day, in addition to hourly updates on its blog, The Scroll. It also produces weekly installments of its podcast, Vox Tablet.
In December 2009, Nextbook, Inc, Tablet's parent company, announced a strategic partnership with JDub Records. According to the JTA: "Under the partnership, the two organizations will remain separate and will still produce their own records and books and cultural materials, but JDub will essentially become Nextbook's in-house marketing and PR department." By 2011, despite Tablet's support, JDub folded citing an inability to find new funding.
