In 1900, most people fundamentally didn't understand what a car was or was capable of- having never seen on.

In 2001, it was the same deal with tablets. Although there were some earlier pseudo-tablets from Palm and Apple.

Market research works very well for improving established existing products. People can answer "what do you like and not like about the product you currently use".
