Tablets are consumer electronics that aren’t going anywhere. Ever since the introduction of the original Apple iPad back in 2010, the reception of tablets from different manufacturers have been amazing. We now see tablets being used everywhere. Based on a research conducted last June 2013 by Pew Internet and American Life Project, in the US alone, 1 in every 3 adult owns a tablet, up by 18% from June 2012’s results. In a different study conducted by BI Intelligence, globally, 1 in every 17 person owns a tablet. And in 2013, it has penetrated over 6% of the world’s population in just 2 years–a milestone that took smartphone global adaptation a good 4 years before reaching when it first registered.
Well, it does make sense. Tablets aren’t just for playing games or for social networking. People have been using them for productivity and learning. Designers use them to sketch dresses, executives use them for presentations, and even in education. Some universities across the globe, as well as in the Philippines, are now using tablets for reading thanks to eBooks and PDF in replacement of actual text books. Some even go as far as replacing notebooks for jotting down notes with tablets.
After the recently concluded CES 2014, the tablet market proves that it is stronger than ever with the announcement of new models from different brands that are certainly worth looking out for, defining what portability, power and worth for money really means.
