After watching the trends for the last several fiscal quarters, Canalys has predicted that tablets are set to rise in sales to 50% of the PC market in 2014. In addition, they say that Android will be making up 32% of mobile operating systems by the end of that year.
Tablets have been growing in popularity as their applications grow, the greater synchronization with various PC services making them a valid replacement for PC’s. Companies have even been making laptop/tablet hybrids, which account for the growing trend. On the other side, phones have been integrating with tablets to create phablets.
