Why Read This Report
For a new technology that is just two years old, tablets are huge hit. For CIOs the question is — will they last and what are the long-term implications? How do tablets interact with other personal computing innovations? Will they be widely adopted? This report outlines the related trends that interact with tablets and sizes the global sales and installed base of tablets through 2016. We predict a new form of PC, called frames, that will rise as a result of tablets and other technology innovations and why tablets will cannibalize laptops but not the new forms of desktop PCs. We then outline the strategic planning challenges for CIOs and predict how vendor strategies and offerings will evolve.
