Only 0.3% of the Earth’s Inhabitants Own A Tablet

It's always fun to be part of an elite crowd. Sometimes it's not good to be on the bleeding edge of technology, though. I would say I have moved away from the bleeding edge (where I was last year when I got my Augen Gentouch 78) to simply leading edge with my Samsung Galaxy Tab from Verizon Wireless.

Get yourself a tablet; join the elites. There's lots of room for growth!

Only 0.3% of the Earth’s Inhabitants Own A Tablet: "

With the overwhelming amount of Tablets announced mid to late 2010 up until now, one would think that there would be quite an amount of them circulating the globe. However, an inductive study by Mike Abramsky, an RBC analyst, shows that the market for tablet ownership is still quite large and promising. According to the chart, 99.7% of people in the world still do not own a tablet of any kind, as of the end of 2010. What the heck is that about? And how in the world do we get an Android tablet in the hands of these 99.7% unaware and depraved individuals? We’ll be working on that one folks.

Abramsky’s chart points to a small smartphone and tablet user base of 394 million worldwide as opposed to other markets like TV subscription, total PC’s and mobile subscribers

According to the Business Insider:

Abramsky predicts more than 400 million tablet users worldwide by 2014, including 185 million tablets sold in 2014. But he thinks Google Android, not Apple, will come to lead the market, representing 40% of the 2014 tablet market, versus 34% for Apple, 13% for Microsoft, 8% for BlackBerry, and 5% for HP WebOS

Until we can find a way to resolve this horrific issue, if you know of anyone who is not rocking an Android tablet of some sort, be sure to point them in the direction of Talk Android, where we’ll do our best to persuade them as to why they ‘need” the functionality of one. Are you content with just a smartphone? Or should one compliment their smartphone with a tablet? We’ll let you be the judge of that. Let us know what your thoughts are in the comments below.
