Tablets: Hey, PC Industry - This Is The Way Forward

PCs & notebooks will endure in some markets, but consumers have moved on

About this Market
For the purposes of this report a ‘tablet’ is a personal computing device that (a) can be used without external accessories (e.g. the user does not need to connect a keyboard or computer) and (b) is substantially larger than a conventional ‘phone-sized’ smartphone.

This definition includes hybrid tablet/notebook devices like Microsoft’s Surface Pro3 and Lenovo's Yoga. Also known as “2-in-1s”, these tablets are in the form of a thin notebook with a ‘snap off’ screen which can be used as a tablet. The definition also includes so-called 'phablets’ which are tablets having screen sizes between ‘phone-sized’ smartphones and full-size tablets.
