In the near future,  numerous Android tablet with a screen size of 8 inches will be on the market. This size will perhaps achieve a good compromise between the two established formats 7 inch and 10 inch, writes Richard Shim of NPD


In his blog post reads: “Notes on the supply point to the development of Android Tablet PC with 8-inch screen and 1280 x 800 pixels resolution in the third quarter of 2013. Its brands include Acer, Asus, Dell and Lenovo . The plans for display production suggest that 8-inch tablets will capture a share of between 5 and 10 percent of the total market by year end. ”

Shim is at NPD DisplaySearch, an expert on Appleproducts, and as such had the launch of the iPadMini with 7.9 correctly predicted that it matters now as a trendsetter. An iPad Mini with high-resolution screen – from Apple called the retina – according to him, will start in the third quarter. He has written the beginning of May .

In today’s release, it is about the iPad: “Apple’s iPad Mini has captured a significant market share.The other brands are now trying this ‘middle class’ extend even to gain market share and achieve something better margins than 7-inch tablet PCs. ”

Next executes shim that PC manufacturers are increasingly focused on tablets, to compensate for the declining demand for desktops and notebooks. When the tablets shipped worldwide is expected an increase of 67 percent year over year, from 153.6 million in 2012 to 256.5 million units this year. On the downside, about minus 5 percent, compared to notebooks of 214 million to 203 million.
