Description

“As overall tablet penetration stalls, the gap between household and personal ownership is shrinking, thus suggesting that multi-tablet households are on the rise. As tablet manufacturers look to offset slowing adoption, the launch of use case-specific tablets, from hardcore gaming, to family activities or media consumption, can broaden the potential for product differentiation and revive consumer demand by boosting multi-tablet households.”
