It’s hard to imagine that tablets were once looked down upon, as a niche technology that would never break through.
Today, tablets are everywhere, sales are skyrocketing and they are working their way into every aspect of our lives, taking over from mobiles in many ways. Where mobile phones were once our gadgets of choice when lounging around watching TV, tablets are taking their place – 33% of tablet use is in the home.
The infographic below has some surprising stats, including the fact that 71% of tablet owners prefer reading on their slate than on phones and any other media.
Other stats are less shocking, for instance the idea that 54% of tablet owners use their device to watch video – which makes absolute sense if you have something like the Xperia™ Tablet in your hands. Movies and TV shows look all the more attractive on a screen with more pixels than the human eye can handle.
Do you have a tablet, or are you holding off until the right one comes along? They’re no longer the sole preserve of people with far too much money, and devices like the Xperia™ Tablet offer blistering performance at a very good price.
