Tablets will remain dominant touch-devices

It has been reported that tablets will remain the most dominant of touch-devices throughout 2012. Apparently, industry sources reckon that 10.1-inch and smaller devices will rake in the most dough.
Samsung, HTC, Asus and Sony are just some of the names that are expected to launch new models in 2012. HP and RIM, on the other hand, are allegedly yet to decide whether it’s worth going for this market after having flopped with their devices earlier. Of course, Apple will continue to dominate the market throughout 2012.
It is said that overall tablet shipments should hit 100 million in 2012, compared to 60 million in 2011. Couple that with new ARM chips, Medfield, Android 4.0, future upgrades thereof and Windows 8 at the end of 2012, and we’ve got an interesting year in tablets ahead of us.
