It was only a few short years ago when tablets like the Google Nexus 7 were flying off the shelves. But ever since smartphone screens got larger, the tablet market has been on the decline (according to IDC). This is especially true with Android tablets.
Apple has updated their 9.7-inch iPad, now with support for the Apple Pencil and improved specs. The company also announced what they’re doing to “spark student creativity” in the classroom.
Acer has announced the first tablet to run Google’s Chrome OS, with the Chromebook Tab 10.
The tablet is market is in a weird place right now, they’re not flying off the shelves like they did back in 2011 but somehow, Apple still manages to sell millions of iPads each year.
Part of the reason, why people aren’t buying as many tablets any more, is because everyone already has at least one tablet in their household. So there is no need to buy a second one, or even to replace your first one, because tablets don’t have the same lifecycle as a smartphone, which is about 2-3 years.
According to Android Police, Moto is working on a new premium tablet device, which would be the company’s newest tablet since the Motorola Xoom.
Samsung latest premium Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3, is now available in Canada.
