2012 Will Be The Year Of Tablets – Many Devices To Be Launched

After huge success of Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet PCs in USA, there is a clear indication that the size of the tablet PC market will continue to expand in 2012 and that Apple might not be able to continue dominating the segment in the coming year, as per a Taiwanese website. Taiwan and China are main centers where majority of Tablets and Smartphones are being outsourced by leading vendors including Apple Inc., USA.

After the release of Android 4.0 and Windows 8 operating system, tablet PCs will dominate the touch-controlled device market in 2012 with models below 10.1-inch sizes accounting for a majority share, according to industry sources. Sony is eager to launch new tablet PCs integrated with its digital game software and audio/video platform, said sources, adding that other vendors including Samsung Electronics, HTC and Asustek Computer will also roll out new models integrated with Android 4.0 and Windows 8.

Tablets here, Tablets there. Tablets everywhere!

While Acer reportedly is  planning to phase out from the tablet PC market, it remains to be seen if Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Research in Motion (RIM) will revive their tablet PC businesses in 2012, the sources added.

Global shipments of tablet PCs are expected to top 100 million units in 2012 compared to 60 million units in 2011, according to data from a number of market research firms. 2012 will see various shapes and sizes of tablets and only those tablets will succeed, which are economical and give good value for money.
