iPad Pro 10.5 review: overkill - The Verge
To me, if you’re going to spend $650 on a computer, it should almost surely be your main computer. And if you’re going to make the iPad Pro your main computer, you should probably get more than 64GB of storage and you should also probably get a keyboard to go with it (to say nothing of the Apple Pencil). It hits the $1,000 mark very quickly.

If you’re going to spend that much money on an iPad, you should know exactly what you’re going to do with it that takes advantage of all the Pro features. There are people who are already doing that, but I don’t think the majority of computer users can be comfortable using an iPad as their main device. For those who can, go out and buy the hell out of this thing (unless you already have the iPad Pro 9.7).

For the rest of us, my advice is to hold out and see whether iOS 11 changes the calculus.

iPad Optics | Asymco
If we look further we see that the iPad is still a much loved and much used product. Data from the Pew Internet Survey shows that tablet ownership among US adults increased from 45% in April 2015 to 48% in April 2016 and 51% in November 2016. The rise has been steady. Although this counts tablets, the iPad had 85% share of the U.S. market for tablets priced above $200 so it’s a fair assumption that the iPad audience is growing. Similar data exists for the UK.

My Tablet Has Stickers | Learning by Shipping
Respectfully, he was partially right. While more and better software was needed, the other part of this shift is the accompanying broad range of other changes that will take place. If you doubt those changes are happening now, then consider how much of your work life/process/culture has changed by the introduction of smartphones. Tablets just took longer because they are not just additive but substitutes. The change is more like email which took two decades to become something resembling a universal tool even after being around for 20 years.

As difficult as they are, we more often than not over-estimate platform shifts in the short term but under-estimate them in the long term.

Tablets Are Dead | TechCrunch
In 2010, tablets were supposed to be the new hot thing. Apple released the first iPad, Samsung was working on the Galaxy Tab and countless others were about to flood the market with Android tablets. Six years later, there weren’t any tablets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Companies and consumers have moved on. Tablets are dead.

Accenture: Consumers not interested in Internet of Things devices - Business Insider
Accenture surveyed more than 28,000 consumers in 28 countries. Here's what they found out:

People are getting bored with new smartphones. Only 48% of consumers plan to buy a smartphone in the next 12 months. That's down 6 points from last year — the first drop since Accenture started doing this survey almost a decade ago, the company's representative Charles Hartley told me. The drop was particularly stark in China, where it went from 82% last year to only 61% this year. Of those who don't plan to buy a new one, 47% said the main reason was because their current phone was good enough.
They're also bored with tablets and laptops. Similarly, the survey showed an eight-point drop in purchase intent for tablets, and a six-point drop for laptops. Overall, only 13% expected to spend more on smartphones, tablets, and laptops this year than last year. That's compared with 33% who said they were planning to spend more in 2014 than 2013. 
Interest in new kinds of gadgets is not filling the gap. Most worryingly, interest in wearables and connected devices was flat from last year, and purchase intent is relatively low
A lot of people are worried about security and privacy of these new gadgets. This was perhaps the biggest surprise: The number-two reason people didn't plan to buy one of these devices (which Accenture calls "Internet of Things" or IoT devices) was because they were worried that they would expose their personal information

The Battle for the Second Screen | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis

Fitbits and iPhones will punish the PC this holiday shopping season - MarketWatch
The market for PCs is expected to further contract in the fourth quarter and expectations for a potential rebound next year rest mostly on businesses instead of computers. Global shipments of PCs are expected to fall 10% this quarter from last year’s holiday shopping period, pushing full-year shipments down 10.3% to 276.7 million, according to estimates from industry tracker IDC. IDC had previously estimated a 9.2% annual decline.

Catalysts such as a strong dollar, low commodity prices and high levels of inventory prompted IDC to adjust its estimates for early 2016 lower as well. It now projects total PC shipments of 268.3 million in 2016, which would mark a year-over-year decline of 3.1%, versus its prior forecast of a 1.1% decline.

Daring Fireball: The iPad Pro
We’ve now reached an inflection point. The new MacBook is slower, gets worse battery life, and even its cheapest configuration costs $200 more than the top-of-the-line iPad Pro. The iPad Pro is more powerful, cheaper, has a better display, and gets better battery life. It’s not a clear cut-and-dry win — MacBooks still have more RAM (the iPad Pro, in all configurations, has 4 GB of RAM, although Apple still isn’t publishing this information — MacBook Pros have either 8 or 16 GB), are expandable, and offer far more storage. But at a fundamental level — CPU speed, GPU speed, quality of the display, quality of the sound output, and overall responsiveness of interface — the iPad Pro is a better computer than a MacBook or MacBook Air, and a worthy rival to the far more expensive MacBook Pros.

The entire x86 computer architecture is living on borrowed time. It’s a dead platform walking. The future belongs to ARM, and Apple’s A-series SoC’s are leading the way.

The Diminished iPad | stratechery by Ben Thompson
Why buy an iPad when you could have an iPhone with a screen that doesn’t seem that much smaller than an iPad mini? Why buy an iPad when you can have a more powerful and just as easily transportable Macbook Air? The space between a phone and PC is smaller now than in 2010 primarily as the phone has become more powerful and larger. Tablets are getting squeezed.

AAPL Orchard | Thoughts on iPad
The iPad is at a crossroads. Introduced by Steve Jobs four years ago, the iPad has gone on to become a phenomenal success (225 million units sold bringing in $112 billion of revenue and approximately $30 billion of profit), but I suspect Apple management will alter the iPad line-up in response to wearable devices and larger-screen phones and in the process iPad’s ultimate trajectory will be more modest and niche than many expect.

U.S. Mobile Benchmark Report ADOBE DIGITAL INDEX | 2014
1. iPhone screen size has to increase: Without the introduction of a larger phone, Apple’s browser share will decline further. Consumers prefer to browse on phones with 5” or larger screens. Browsing on 4” devices fell by 11% YoY.
2. Pinterest is the most mobile social network: Outpacing Facebook, Pinterest is the most mobile social network with 64% of its referred traffic coming from mobile browsers. Tumblr referrals produce the highest revenue per visit (RPV) from mobile devices – well ahead of Facebook.
3. iMessage sharing up 259%: Users of digital magazine apps use person-to-person article sharing via text messaging twice as o$en as sharing via Social. While iMessage sharing is up, sharing via Facebook is down 43%.
4. Cellular networks on decline: For the !rst time, more than 50% of web browsing via smartphones and 93% of browsing via tablets come from wi-fi.
5. Bounce rates high on mobile: Bounce rates for referrals from social networks are much higher on mobile devices than desktops – 61% vs. 53%. Marketers are cautioned to track mobile ad bounce rates.

A Future Fueled by Phablets – Worldwide Phablet Shipments to Surpass Portable PCs in 2014 and Tablets by 2015, According to IDC - prUS25077914
According to a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Smart Connected Device Tracker, worldwide phablet shipments (smartphones with screen sizes from 5.5 to less than 7 inches) will reach 175 million units worldwide in 2014, passing the 170 million portable PCs expected to ship during the same period. Next year, total phablet volumes will top 318 million units, surpassing the 233 million tablets forecast to ship in 2015.

Smart Connected Devices: A New Forecast | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis
The bottom line is that I’m now expecting the PC market to perform even better than I first predicted, the tablet market to do even worse and the smartphone market to do better exclusively because of an explosion of interest in larger smartphones. In fact, my new forecast numbers show that the tablet market will never catch the PC market, but instead will linger in the sub-280 million unit range through the end of the 5-year forecast period (through 2018).

But what is very different about the current live TV viewing data is how it’s split across different devices. The chart below breaks out live TV viewing by device type and by age group and, along the right hand side, illustrates how many hours per week each age group watches live TV programming. Across the entire age spectrum, fully 30% of live TV viewing is no longer done on an actual TV. For younger age groups, a reasonable amount is done on smartphones and across nearly all the age groups, there’s double-digit usage of PCs for this application.

iOS Drops to 67% Enterprise Share, Android Grows to 32%
Apple’s iOS still rules the enterprise space, even after having fallen 5 percentage points to 67 percent of total device activations in Q2 2014. Android device activations increased the same amount to 32 percent of total activations last quarter, while Windows Phone activations remain consistent with the five previous quarters: flat at 1 percent. The latest findings come from Good Technology‘s semi-annual Mobility Index Report. It’s worth noting that since BlackBerry devices use BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate email access, Good Technology does not have insight into BlackBerry handset activations.

Best Buy CEO Says Tablet Sales “Crashing” | Re/code
As a consumer. I think replacement is the issue. The penetration has gone so fast that it’s reaching an amazing degree and therefore it becomes more of a replacement market, and the level of innovation in the past year has not been as great as it had been in the previous two years. So, there again, the jury’s out in terms of what’s going to happen, because it’s going to depend on what innovation comes to market. But you need a reason to replace.

I doubt our love affair with tablets is actually over. In some markets, it has just matured and for many in emerging markets it will become sort of a PC.

Apple and IBM Storm the Enterprise | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis
The news Apple and IBM have joined forces to deliver a powerful new business approach to the enterprise is the shot heard round the IT world. This global deal, where IBM in essence becomes a VAR (value added reseller) for Apple and includes IBM porting more than 150 of their IT apps and tools exclusively to iOS for use in full native mode, will give IBM more tools in their mobile arsenal as well as provide Apple a stronger foothold in the enterprise — beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Even though Apple’s iPad represents 73% of tablets in the enterprise and the iPhone also has a substantial position in IT, this partnership with IBM helps solidify that iOS is the OS for business tablets and smartphones and gives them a huge edge over their competition.

Tablet PC Quarterly Shipments Fall for the First Time, According to NPD DisplaySearch - DisplaySearch
According to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Mobile PC Shipment and Forecast Report, shipments of notebook PCs in Q1’14 were better than expected due to the commercial PC refresh cycle and Windows XP migration. However, shipments of tablet PCs at 56 million declined Y/Y for the first time. Many brands reported weak tablet PC shipment results in Q1 due in part to delayed launches of new products. NPD DisplaySearch has lowered its forecast for tablet PC shipments in 2014 to 285 million.

Virtualization Reborn | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis
The benefit behind the thin client concept is that you leverage the greater computing power of the host device and create a simple, low-cost client that can work alongside it. With traditional models, that host tended to be a high-cost server located in a secure data center, but in the new thin client computing models, it’s smartphones and tablets that have become the host devices. They now have sufficient compute power to drive these new types of flexible compute models and, of course, that capability will only grow over time.

TrendForce: Global Tablet Shipments Expected to reach 205M in 2014, up less than 5% on year
Global tablet shipments are expected to reach 205.5 million in 2014, less than 5% on year, according to WitsView, a research division of TrendForce. The tablet market is sandwiched between internal and external threats that are affecting market performance. Internally, tablets have lost their novelty to attract consumers, and cutthroat price competitions are creating a desperate atmosphere in the market. External factors at work, though, include competition from phablets and low-priced notebooks that are further dividing tablet market shares.

Slowdown Hits UK Smartphone and Tablet Sales, Tough Competition Looms
CCS Insight's latest forecast signals demand for smartphones and tablets in the UK has slowed dramatically. The research company estimates 27 million phones and 12 million tablets will be sold in the UK this year — five million devices fewer than in 2013. The forecast showed sales of mobile phones dropped 20 percent in the first months of 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. Meanwhile tablet sales, which broke all records in previous quarters, slumped 17 percent. This is the first time such a sharp decline has been recorded in the vibrant UK market outside a recession.

IDC Lowers Tablet Projections for 2014 as Phablet Shipments and Slower Refresh Rates Impact Shipment Growth - prUS24890514
Based on a greater decline in demand than predicted in the first quarter and concerns that tablets and 2-in-1s will face additional market challenges the rest of the year, International Data Corporation (IDC) has lowered its 2014 worldwide tablet plus 2-in-1 forecast to 245.4 million units, down from the previous forecast of 260.9 million units. The new forecast represents a 12.1% year-over-year growth rate, which is notably lower than the 51.8% year-over-year growth of 2013. "Two major issues are causing the tablet market to slow down. First, consumers are keeping their tablets, especially higher-cost models from major vendors, far longer than originally anticipated. And when they do buy a new one they are often passing their existing tablet off to another member of the family," said Tom Mainelli, Program Vice President, Devices & Displays at IDC. "Second, the rise of phablets – smartphones with 5.5-inch and larger screens – are causing many people to second-guess tablet purchases as the larger screens on these phones are often adequate for tasks once reserved for tablets."
