Tablet computer market on 81% CAGR, says analyst

Tablet computer market on 81% CAGR, says analyst

This report is somewhat different from the report titled "PC market lifted by iPad demand, says analyst". Looking back, I think netbook is not a very good product to begin with. It is like a regular laptop but less powerful. It aims at simple tasks such as web browser, movie watching and occasional word processing. The first 2 tasks can be accomplished through a tablet. Yet, word processing and working on spreadsheet are still somewhat a challenge on a tablet. It doesn't mean working on a netbook would be a lot easier. That's the reason I believe network wasn't designed correctly. However, it does open up a low cost computer market, allowing less fortunate students to have access to personal computer. There is no doubt netbook market will continue shrinking for various reason. Will it totally disappear from the market? Well! Only future can tell.
