Taking Tablet Devices Ahead of PC's

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 3, 2012) - A recent article in the Telegraph (Australia) comments that tablets will soon overtake laptops and by 2017 there will be 23 million more tablets than laptops!

Tablets are seen as the next step in technological evolution and Microsoft is working on both the hardware and software elements of its forthcoming offering.

Of course, Apple and Google are already up and running in this area and Microsoft is working hard to ensure that its Window 8 is compatible across all platforms.

Tablets are becoming more commonplace now - there is always someone on the train or tube working away on their tablet - and we see more and more of them being used by journalists when they report from a scene or a sports event.

This highly visible acceptance of the tablet means that, as shown in the figures above, the tablet will become the computer of choice in the not too distant future. If you are at the front of this technological wave, make sure your tablet - or any of your gadgets or your downloads - are insured - visit to find out more.
