Tablets poised to be computing option of the future

With the 24-hour news cycle creating headlines as fast as possible, talking heads seem to be touting some device as the next big thing every week or so. While many of these devices fall by the wayside, there is one that industry experts could not have gotten more right – tablet computing.

For a market that didn’t really exist three years ago, tablets have been gaining steam ever since late Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the iPad in April of 2010. Since then, a number of competitors have hit the market and demand is booming. According to an infographic from OnlineClasses.org, the iPad is expected to reach 200 million units sold by 2013. By 2016, the iPad is expected to outsell PCs.

The growth of the tablet industry is truly something to behold. In just 18 months, the device has penetrated 11 percent of American homes. To add a little bit of context to that, the internet took about 8 years to reach that percentage, the home telephone got there in 25 years and electricity needed 30 years to pull it off.

It is easy to see why tablets are popular. They posses the functionality of a laptop with the portability of a smartphone. They have become a perfect business tool. The ability to create and install custom applications make the devices ideal for any industry and a desired gadget for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) practices.

According to the report, three out of four enterprises have already incorporated tablets in some way. IT departments need to consider the networking and cabling solutions to ensure the devices run to their fullest potential.
