It’s no lie, people love their tablets. It has become the easiest way for people to just relax, say, on their couch perhaps, and surf the web, so it’s no surprise that tablet web traffic has been increasing. A new report, however, is claiming that tablet web traffic could be 30% of the total mobile web traffic by the end of this year. Know what? That comes as no surprise to me, being the owner of two tablets. The report also shows an expectation that smartphone traffic is where the tablets will steal the market share from, but still will be a much lower portion than the smartphone market share, which will be at about 70% if this prediction holds true. In terms of OS market share, this didn’t contain any tablet numbers, but showed an expectation for the smartphone operating systems from Apple and Google to keep an even amount between them, while also stealing from other companies (most notably RIM, or now BlackBerry). Going on to break the numbers down further, it showed how it’s expected that Samsung will only further increase its grip on the Android market, but that shouldn’t be a surprise either.
What do you think? Are you a tablet user? Do you think the numbers will hold true? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
