Undoubtedly, the demand of Tablets are increasing with the dizzying pace worldwide. A research analysis firm–Gartner–has reportedly said that 665 million Tablets are expected to be used across the world by 2016. The firm has also projected 118.9 million Tablets sale by the end of this year, up almost 100% from a year before. The Tablet market is getting momentum due to advent of numbers of competitors like Amazon’s Kindle Fire, low-priced Nook Tablet and a lineups of Galaxy Tablets from Samsung.

Indeed, PC sales are being eaten by Tablets across the world, however, the firm has estimated 536.3 million units sale in 2015–counting the total numbers of both desktop and PC.
