2015 – The year of the tablet

Research firm Gartner is predicting that 2015 will be the year in which the number of tablet devices finally overtakes the number of PCs shipped worldwide.

The company’s latest report foresees that the number of traditional PCs (that includes both desktops and notebooks) and ultramobile devices will reach 317 million in 2015, up slightly from its estimate of 308 million for this year. In contrast, Gartner estimates that the number of tablet devices will increase from 256 million in 2014 to 321 million in 2015.
