The Rise of Electronic Tablets
With Christmas just around the corner, it isn’t a surprise that electronic products will be once more the most sought after presents. The game consoles will as usual rival with computers and phones, but this year, the real war will involve electronic tablets. The iPad will have to face assaults from many other tablets, mainly brought in by phone manufacturers but also by Amazon and Apple’s main enemy, Microsoft.
Things in the electronic tablets market have changed a lot since the released of the first iPad in 2012. Apple has now released the fourth generation iPad as well as its little brother, the iPad Mini. Since, many manufacturers have produced their own tablets, including Motorola, Samsung, Sony, HTC, Google and Microsoft.
Now with keyboard
Today, tablets are incredibly popular, with Apple topping the sales with 100 million iPad sold by October 2012. Amazon follows with 7 million Kindle sold. One can only imagine how the number of electronic tablets sold will explode with so many brands out and Microsoft entering the market with the Microsoft Surface, released this year alongside Windows 8.
This new tablet is bringing a major innovation, a keyboard that also serves as cover and is connected to the screen via a magnetic strip. This could give an even bigger boost to the electronic tablets that could rival with computers. Indeed, until now, these tablets were great for browsing the internet, play videos, music and games, but not for typing.
While the tablets will not replace computers, they are great for those who are on the move or just looking for an entertainment product easy to use.
