Global tablet shipments to reach 42 million units in 2015
Worldwide shipment of tablet computers is expected to rise by 12 folds in 2015, estimated research firm ISuppli. A rise of 242.3 million units will be seen in 2015, owing to an enormous upsurge in the demand for the device, report said.
According to ISuppli director Rhoda Alexander, the year 2012 will witness a wave propelled by Android-based models.
“The year 2013 will mark a critical juncture, as the tablet market turns into a battleground between media tablets using mobile operating systems, and PC-type tablets employing the Windows operating system,” Alexander said. “Add to this mix the competition from ever-improving smartphones, and the mobile device market will get very interesting.”
