India tablet shipments slow down in Q1

Wednesday 25 May 2016 | 13:35 CET | News
India's tablet market remained flat in the first quarter of 2016, compared to the previous quarter with total shipments of 860,000 units (including slate and detachable form factors). However, shipments grew by 1.3 percent over the same period of 2015, according to a report from International Data Corporation (IDC). The report also shows that declining consumer interest in the slate tablet form factor and rapid growth of large screen smartphones (phablets) generated the tablet market slowdown in the quarter.
