    IDC’s tablet shipment projections To reach 222 million by 2016


    Expectations for tablet sales keep increasing. The market research firm IDC just released a new study that shows a higher demand for tablets than they expected by the end of 2012 and beyond. IDC expects tablet shipments to reach 107.4 million this year, up from 106.1 million units.


    By year end, the Apple iPad is expected to account for 62.5% of total global shipments, up from 58.2% in 2011. Android tablet market share looks like it will decline from 38.7% in 2011 to 36.5% in 2012.


    In the longer term, IDC upped its 2013 tablet forecast from 137.4 million to 142.8 million units. The research firm expects 2016 worldwide shipments to reach 222.1 million units.

    Tom Mainelli, research director for Mobile Connected Devices at IDC explained the increases this way: “Demand for media tablets remains robust, and we see an increasing interest in the category from the commercial side. We expect pending new products from major players, increasingly affordable mainstream devices, and a huge marketing blitz from Microsoft around Windows 8 to drive increased consumer interest in the category through the end of the year.”

    With buzz words like “CES,” “Android 4.0,” “tablet,” and “$170,” ViewSonic has our attention! The 7-inch device is to be released later in Q1 and will undoubtedly be a great choice for frugal consumers who enjoy the latest technology.  The company’s vice-president of development, Michael Holstein, says this about their upcoming tablet “ViewSonic is committed to delivering advanced technology designed with the consumer in mind […]“Featuring the latest Android operating system, along with leading apps and services for entertainment content, the ViewPad E70 continues the ViewSonic tradition of bringing feature-rich products to new markets.”

    The news that this tablet will be rocking the Ice Cream Sandwich version of the Android OS is definitely a highlight in comparison to its other specs. It will have a 1GHz single-core processor, 4GB of storage, an HDMI-out, and a front facing camera. With these less than stellar specs, customers considering this option should invest in some performance enhancing accessories like stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables, earpieces and headphones, speakers and additional MicroSD Memory cards cards. A separate device like a media player or more amped-up smartphone for music and pictures may also be considerations when looking to purchase this tablet.


    But, as the ViewPad E70 does have the latest Android OS, it is being touted as device particularly suited for web surfing, e-reading, and gaming. This also brings customers the premium apps and services in a very light and compact tablet. The 1080p HDMI output does help compensate for the low 4GB by giving users the option of streaming multimedia. The low cost of the ViewPad E70 means that customers can invest in great accessories to take advantage of the best features of this device.


    There will likely be those potential users who will be concerned with the limited 4GB (and let’s be honest, compared to other smartphones and tablets on the market, this is quite low), Luckily, there are removable storage and memory options out there to keep the tablet running as fast and light as intended.
