Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Are you using a Tablet?

CES 2011 is less than One Day away. There is already speculation that this year’s event buzz will feature the WAR OF THE TABLET COMPUTER.!

Forrester is predicting that over 82 million Americans will own a tablet — or more than one-third of U.S. adults — will own a tablet computer by 2015.

Forrester estimates that 10.3 million tablet computers were sold in 2010 and predicts sales of 24.1 million this year and 44 million by 2015.

The reason Tablets computers are experiencing this rapid growth is because they are providing practical solutions that can be used in business, at school and at home. The tablet is certainly helping productivity but it is also becoming a lifestyle device. At home, it will be used as a TV remote, the new cookbook with videos, review your stock portfolio, a new entertainment device for the kids in the back seat of the car and much more. Schools are also becoming major consumers of tablets to support new learning initiatives. The Wellesley, MA school system will be using tablets.  Then there is your favorite restaurant that is now featuring their wine list─on a tablet!

While many of the pundits predict that Apple will continue to dominate the tablet marketplace, there will be some fierce competition. Google’s Android operating system, Microsoft’s Windows and platforms from Hewlett-Packard, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, and Nokia are all stepping up their efforts to capture the market.

So how will this change how you are delivering your digital content in 2011? It is time to take a hard look at Tablets.
