Global Tablet Market in Decline
Yes, it's now several quarters in a row that tablets sales are declining.
Some folks will point out that it's obvious, decline is because most people out there already own one. But the problem is that manufacturers like Apple make money out of the sales of tablets, not out of the folks owning one already.
Apps don't generate much money. If apps were generating serious cash, Apple would develop tons of them, acquire startups and so on. Instead they develop apps that are solely intended to sell hardware, period. So the real question is: how long will a manufacturer support a device that doesn't generate money, once sold...?
