Two thirds of toddlers use tablets - Toys 'n' Playthings
New study finds infants are turning to tech earlier - but parents are become increasingly strict with limiting screen time
Almost two thirds of children under the age of two are allowed to use tablets, and a third can open apps and turn the device on themselves, according to new data by market research specialists Parents Insights.

The findings, from Parents Insights Q2 report on a study of 2,500 parents, also shows that one in five tech-savvy babies can unlock a smart device unaided. 

But the study found that parents are alive to potential problems occurring from too much tablet use, with more than half (63per cent) limiting their kids’ time on the device to less than half an hour a day.

Microsoft details secret ‘pocketable’ Surface device in leaked email - The Verge
Microsoft has been working on a new mysterious Surface device for at least two years. Codenamed Andromeda, the device has appeared in patents, reports, and in operating system references multiple times and will include a dual-display design. According to a Microsoft internal document obtained by The Verge, it’s also going to be a pocketable Surface device.

Microsoft describes its Andromeda project as something the company has quietly incubated internally, and that will create a “new and disruptive” device category to influence the overall Surface roadmap and blur the lines between what’s considered PC and mobile. “It’s a new pocketable Surface device form factor that brings together innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience,” is exactly how Microsoft describes the device internally. Thurrott originally reported some of Microsoft’s plans earlier this month, and Numerama originally unveiled the Andromeda codename last year. Microsoft declined to comment on Andromeda to The Verge.

reMarkable Tablet — OmarKnows
(This looks like kind of a neat e-ink tablet, but at $600, it’s hard to justify.)
“The reMarkable is an expensive device ($599). It’s not for everyone. But I do get asked about it at least once a day. People are very curious about it and generally long for the ability to also take notes like this - perhaps the price will come down over time but right now that seems to be it’s #1 issue.”

Google unceremoniously removes the tablet section from official Android website • Android Police
Ryan Whitwam:
<p>Google has been doing an impressive job of pretending Android tablets don't exist for the last few years, and now it's done pretending. Google has updated the Android website to remove the tablet section entirely. You can now use that site to learn all about Android on Phones, Wear, TV, Auto, and Enterprise. That's it. RIP Android tablets.

As of yesterday [May 31], the tablet section still existed. You can see the <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20180531184255/http://www.android.com/tablets/">last version of the page in the Internet Archive</a>. It talked about hot new tablets like the Shield and Galaxy Tab S2. So, yeah. It wasn't getting much attention even before Google killed it. Now, if you try to visit the URL for the <a href="http://www.android.com/tablets/">tablet page</a>, it kicks you back to the main Android site.</p>


Wow, that is quite a statement - even in passive-aggressive form. Whitwam also points out that there are no Android P dev tablets. Though there might be ChromeOS tablets that run Android.

Even with this, Android tablets come in dead last on developers' to-do list, which generally runs iPhone, Android phones, iPad, Android tablets. Though possibly ChromeOS comes ahead of Android tablets now.

Player 3 has joined the game – Chrome OS detachables paint a brighter future while tablet market struggles • IDC
<p>Global tablet shipments in the first quarter of 2018 (1Q18) reached 31.7m, declining 11.7% from the prior year, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. However, the growing niche of detachable tablets like the Microsoft Surface and iPad Pro did experience more than 2.9% year-over-year growth and captured 15.3% share as newer models came into play. Meanwhile, the decline for traditional slate tablets continued as vendors managed to ship 26.8m units, down 13.9% from the prior year.

"Chrome OS' entrance in the detachable market is a welcome change as Google is finally a serious contender from a platform perspective," said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "Google's tighter control and integration of Chrome OS will allow brands to focus more on hardware design and additional services rather than spending resources reconfiguring Android to work in a detachable setting. Combined with Microsoft's efforts to run Windows on ARM, the detachable market is poised for strong growth in the near term."

"The timing of Chrome OS' official entry into the tablet category is apt," stated Linn Huang, research director, Devices and Displays. "Peak education buying season is approaching, and Chrome OS has resonated with administrators for its manageability where deployment is strong. Schools looking for that same environment but in tablet form – generally students aren't provisioned a device with a keyboard until older – could find favor with these new devices.</p>


The detachables market seems to be (on those numbers) 4.85m. Apple sold 1.8m iPad Pros - making it leader in the detachables market. Lenovo managed 0.2m detachables, apparently. That leaves another 2.85m split between all the others.
