Poll results: Do you own a tablet?
After a few years of uninterrupted expansion, due mainly to Apple's iPad line, the unprecedented growth stalled, the iPad share started to equate with the Android and Windows tablet rise, and on the whole the initial excitement subsided quite a bit.
Of course, a lot of this has to do with the new advancements in the PC space. Thanks to Intel's new frugal and fanless processors, to its Ultrabook design concept, and to Microsoft's touch-oriented Windows editions, we now have full-blown computers that are not much thicker and heavier, and with no less battery life than a larger tablet with a keyboard case, but are much more powerful and capable. Furthermore, tablet developments, besides getting thinner, faster and with more resolute displays, are few and far between, so the replacement cycle is much slower than with smartphones.
That is why we were curious if you have succumbed to the tablet craze, and asked you last week whether you own a tablet, if you consider getting one, or if you see no need for a slate in your life whatsoever. Well, we were in for a surprise - if the tablets' market share is shrinking, it is certainly not reflected in the close to 3000 votes we got here, of which a full 66% said they do own one, while another 14% are considering such a purchase. Granted, that could simply meant that the tablet market has reached some point of saturation, and since the refresh cycle with slate is slower than with phones, tablet makers should plan accordingly.
