Tablet Ownership is Growing. Lots!

Tablet computer sales are exceeding many analysts' expectations.

According to the February 22, 2013 issue of Processor magazine -
  • Between the third and fourth quarters of 2012, the percentage of U.S. consumers who owned tablets rose from 31 to 38. So says the Consumer Electronics Association.
  • IDC reported that worldwide tablet computer sales are much higher than expected. They estimate that 52.5 million tablets were shipped in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with 29.2 million in the same quarter of 2011.
These two data points may not tell you everything that you need to know to decide which platform to select for your next application development project. But they are a solid indicator that the world is moving past the desktop/laptop solutions that have dominated the marketplace for the past 30 years.
