A recent report from Strategy Analytics, called â€œMobile Computing Device Cannibalization: The Game Has Changedâ€ estimates that tablets will ship in higher volumes than mobile PCs for the full calendar year of 2013, reaching 231 million. And, of course, Apple's iPad plays a major role in this achievement.
Strategy Analyticsâ€™ report says that a number of 186 million mobile PCs will have been shipped in 2013 by the end of next month, less than the number of shipped tablets. Matt Wilkins, Director of Tablets and Wearables for Strategy Analytics, said the following:
Recently, Appleâ€™s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Cook, revealed that Apple had sold its 170 millionth iPad, which shows just how big the impact of this technological product has been. Also, letâ€™s not forget that Appleâ€™s iconic tablet is an young product, as it was introduced in 2010. Now, with increased pressure from Android and Windows tablets, can Apple's iconic slate manage to resist and remain the darling of the tablet world?
