The tablet market is cratering, buddy.
In Free Fall.
Tablet inventories are piling up on store shelves.
Everyone from Apple to Samsung to Microsoft is struggling to get their tablets into the hands of consumers.
Apple’s famed iPad tablets has gone through five consecutive quarters of sales declines.
As for Android tablets, they’re fighting to stay afloat despite prices falling below $100.
BI Intelligence is bearish on tablet shipments in the coming years.
“We estimate very modest annual growth over the next five years, driven by enterprise uptake and low-cost device sales. We expect global tablet shipments to grow at a slow 2.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2015 and 2020, reaching just 281 million units shipped at the end of the forecast period,” BI Intelligence said in a recent report.
Wait a While
So if you’re in the market for a new tablet, you should hold out for some time.
Wait till the tablet vendors start getting desperate and begin discounting their devices before opening your wallet.
Sometimes prominent vendors discount their electronic gizmos on sites like eBay.
So don’t forget to check deal sites like TechBargains for deals on tablets.
One more thing, sweetie!
If you’re looking to jump into the tablet market for the first time, take my advice and pony up for a large-screen tablet. A 7-inch or 8-inch tablet tablet is not worth it when you’re lying in bed at 11PM on Friday and watching the latest Korean romcom like My Love from the Stars!
