2013: The Year of the Tablet

By January 9, 2013

Follow me on:

Move over notebooks, here comes the tablet. According to a market forecast by DisplaySearch, tablet sales are set to surpass notebooks in 2013. DisplaySearch points to 7-inch tablets as being the trend that will propel tablets past notebooks, with tablets in the 7 to 8 inch range making up 45 percent of sales.

This comes hot on the heels of an analyst from Bernstein Research reporting that the iPad would be the 11th largest tech company should it spin off from Apple. The iPad amassed $32 billion in sales, enough so that it would rank 98th on the Fortune 500. The report forecast that iPad sales would rise to 102 million in 2013 and 177 million by 2016.
