The technology and computing industry has been dominated by the rise of the mobile consumer hardware over the past decade. In many ways, we have seen a shift in consumer and manufacturer priorities to form factor, mobility, and convenience in addition to pure function and feature set. Perhaps the biggest evidence of this was the introduction and subsequent success of the tablet, which typified this growing new trend in the consumer electronics industry. The tablet offered little in the way of new features and utility, yet its rise to popularity was stratospheric. It ushered in the decline of Personal Computing devices, and many predicted that the tablet would eventually kill off PCs as we know them.

Or is the tablet doomed to a slow and painful death, much like the way of other once ubiquitous devices such as CD and mp3 players?
