Are tablets a dying breed? Already? That means Apple is doomed, right? Maybe, but not this year despite Best Buy’s CEO saying tablet sales are crashing. David Goldman with a theory on why tablet sales are tanking:
There are three big obstacles facing the market that are impacting demand for tablets: Smartphones are getting bigger, tablets last a while and businesses aren’t buying them. Who needs a tablet when you’re already carrying one around in your pocket?
Fair enough, though industry watchers speculate that the first tablet cycle is about the arrive and with it, more sales.
So the tablet’s not dead. It’s just resting.
