The tablet market reached a turning point in 2014 experiencing its first slow down since the first tablet release in 2010. With annual sales of between 230 and 260 million units according to analysts, tablets are facing fierce competition from phablets on the one hand and unexpected resistance of PCs on the other hand. Long forecasted as declining PCs have maintained their sales around 315 million units in 2014.
The PC remains a dominant tool for professional use, while tablets are more commonly used for leisure activities, including online banking and shopping. However some professionals also use them in their everyday work.
