We’re going to expect and see more tablet or slate PC model's, brand name's, in the future as the International Data Corporation or IDC has predicted an increase in shipments of these devices especially lower-priced ones starting this year. Also, the death of laptop's begun as I saw yesterday in a shopping.


Scenario comes like this, mother and her child go shopping for gadget, mother have chosen to buy her daughter a laptop, prepared an Ultrabook for her child. And according to the mother, she is looking for that were her child going to use in school. However, on the other side, her daughter don't like Ultrabook and according to her, the daughter, "Laptops nowadays are going to be phase-out and not trendy as Tablets".


In that situation and scenario, the later generation, a generation of our parent's prepare Laptop's and on the other hand, younger generation comes with Tablets, prepared Android. Does it can affect the market for laptops? Let seek an information about Tablet market.


According to IDC’s forecast, this year’s worldwide tablet market will total 190.9 million units with an average increase of 11% between 2013 and 2016. The Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker estimates tablet shipments will reach more than 350 million by the end of 2017.

Smaller and lower-priced tablets continue to be a major driving factor for the surge. “One in every two tablets shipped this quarter was below 8 inches in screen size. And in terms of shipments, we expect smaller tablets to continue growing in 2013 and beyond,” said Jitesh Ubrani, Research Analyst for IDC’s Tablet Tracker. “Vendors are moving quickly to compete in this space as consumers realize that these small devices are often more ideal than larger tablets for their daily consumption habits.”
