The Apple iPad continues to dominate the tablet market. Unfortunately, this is not a novelty that will amaze us. This is because apart from Samsung and Huawei, few manufacturers continue to struggle in this sector.
I personally believe that this tablet sector has many capabilities, however, in an ideology different from what we have at the moment. I’ll talk about it.
Apple iPad continues to dominate tablet sales
According to IDC analysts, Apple continues to dominate the tablet market without major problems. With more than 13.9 million iPads sold in the third quarter of 2020. This makes Apple’s market share 29.2%. A maketshare that Apple is unable to sell smartphones.
Samsung is right behind with 9.4 million units sold and a market share of 19.8%. Thirdly, we have Amazon with its “Fire” at low prices. Still, this makes Amazon third with 11.4% of the market. Huawei is in fourth place with 4.9 million units sold and only 10.2% of the marketshare.
Tablets could be the future of our smart home
Tablets have been seen as a leisure or work gadget (questionable). This is because the productivity of a tablet is not as great as that of a PC. In addition, it is not as convenient as a mobile phone for transport.
So, a tablet is perfect at this point to watch videos on the couch or take a long flight. However, I would like to see a little more.
I have been working on making my home smart, however, I am not one of those who walks with the smartphone when I am at home. So, I installed an iPad (in test format) to be my command. This is for when I don’t want to talk to Google for any reason.
I can’t say it’s going wrong, quite the contrary, however, I would like to see more adaptable software for this. Amazon does a good job with its “Alexas with screen”, however, they are slow, small and with bad software.
If Android makers (say Xiaomi) focused on bringing a tablet to be a smart home controller, I fully believe that the future would be bright. I’m not talking about bringing a tablet just for that, however, very focused on the smart home. Maybe for now I was not very successful, however, it was another feature that we could give to our tablet.
