No, this is not only an Apple’s problem: as Henry Blodget says in an interesting articled appeared on BusinessInsider, tablet market growth is slowing, but what’s the main reason behind that ? (guest post)
As recently as a couple of quarters ago, analysts were convinced that tablet growth rates would be stratospheric forever (or at least until a few billion people had one).
Apple, it was said, was no longer going to be “the iPhone company.” It was going to be “the iPad
company.” And analysts were frantically calculating how much money Apple was going to coin once it was selling more iPads than iPhones.
Well, those forecasts aren’t looking so promising anymore.
Tablet growth has slowed sharply over the past few quarters. And tablet growth at Apple has hit a wall.
