Forecasts in this research will span from 2010 until 2016 (with 2010 serving as the base year). Additionally, features, specifications, and file format compatibility adoption rates will be included for the base year, 2010
- The pure play E-Readers market includes all devices equipped with an e-Ink screen orcomparable technology, which simulates actual paper. These devices, are also limited interms of functionality when compared to tablets and netbooks, making them the mostfocused devices represented in this research. Also, devices with more than one screentechnology will fall under the category which most closely relates to their core purposeand functionality.
- Consumer tablet devices are a new category which have become popular thanks to the2010 success of the Apple iPad. These devices do not come with keyboards, and aregenerally equipped with advanced mobile SOCs (system on a chip) or Intel Atomprocessors. Additionally, these devices typically do not come with full-featured desktop operating systems, and thus are limited in terms of loadable software and functionality (although far less so than E-Readers).
- The professional tablet market precedes all other markets covered in this research, and generally consists of ruggedized or special purpose tablets for the medical market, thgovernment, the military, and other markets with employees that are in the field. These devices are typically equipped with ultra low voltage laptop hardware, include nokeyboard, and are capable of handling full-featured desktop operating systems.
- Netbook computers include low cost laptop-like devices which are a small form factor,and come equipped with an Intel Atom (or comparable CPU). These devices may beequipped with full-featured desktop operating systems, although they usually run on aminimalistic distribution of Linux.
- E-Readers devices are targeted at the average consumer, and are not particularly geared towards tech savvy individuals. These devices are thus, easy to use, non-upgradable, low cost, and do not stray far from their core focus (displaying e-Books).
- Consumer tablet devices are also targeted at the average consumer, although they have far more functionality. Thus, these devices are able to appeal more to tech savvy end users.
- Professional tablet devices are targeted towards mobile professionals in the field. These devices range from general purpose to extremely focused in terms of their capabilities, with generally higher costs due to the necessary capabilities and hardware.
- The netbook market is geared towards consumers looking for mobile devices which are low cost (in contrast to ultra mobile PCs). Though limited in hardware, netbooks are the most multi-purpose devices included in this research. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
