History of Improvement in Tablet Industry
Earlier tablets were mostly used by military and factory workers. By the mid-2000s, the ‘Tablet industry’ made progress and there were multiple tablets to choose from. Still, tablets were not an attraction for consumers because of the cost element and were not that much attractive in terms of specifications also. ‘Apple’ made a major breakthrough and introduced ‘iPad’, it was a big hit. This triggered great competition and all the major companies like ‘Samsung’ launched tablets of diverse range with much improved and catchy specifications. Though, prices were still high but not as high as in the previous decade. As things improved, sales increased and prices went down by time. Later on, Amazon stepped into the tablet industry and introduced its flagship tablet at a competitive price. The competition pushed the companies to produce a better product at a competitive price.
Trend of Tablet Gaming
Phone gaming is much more than the tablet gaming, it is because, all of us are readily having mobile phones on us but on the other hand, tablets are much less. Mostly tablets, as mentioned earlier were used for working purposes and official uses before the gaming trend. As the tablets improved, it attracted gamers. Mobile phone companies began to manufacture and started improving tablets more in terms of specifications to meet the demands of gamers for the better gaming experience. From higher RAMs to wireless charging, data network, and high performance with much attractive displays, all of this was just a fantasy back then. This was the time when consumers started thinking about tablet use besides their mobile phones. The trend of gaming tablets is for real and rising day by day.
