Since the first release of tablets, it was not really appreciated till Steve Jobs launched the first iPad in 2010, which went on to sell millions of units. This forced some other manufacturers to release their own tablets, and take part in the tablet boom.
Tablets were made to bridge the gap between the notebook and phone, but in recent times, we have seen the emergence of big phones named phablets. The presence of phablets make it hard for some people to totally differentiate a tablet from a phablet.
Most importantly, it seems the phablets are displacing the tablets in terms of usage. It has been reported that tablet sales and growth has greatly depreciated worldwide.
This could mean that as people buy phablets, they abandon their tablets. Are you one of those? Do you own a phablet? Do you still own and use a tablet?
