According to the latest research, half of the UK citizens are now using tablets - the statistics show that there were over 12 million tablets sold in the country last year. By comparing this number to the population, you can figure out that by the end of January, half of Britons will own or have access to a tablet, up from 36% last summer.
The industry observers believe the growth of popularity of keyboardless devices had been driven by the value end of the market, which had made the touchscreen items children's toys, popular among those who don’t want to pay for more expensive models.
The growth was helped by the rise of budget tablets - for example, Amazon’s Kindle Fire (its price starts at £199), Tesco's Hudl and Argos's £99 tablet. However, the last is now unavailable. Experts say that tablets had gained popularity with extraordinary speed, and their makers will have to work hard to stay on top of the evolution of the market.
It looks like people are now starting to listen to Bill Gates who claimed that there were shedloads of uses for tablets. Today there appear to be more users and use cases for tablets than many could imagine. The secret was to get the balance of form, function and price right.
Apparently, online retailers understand the situation and started slashing prices and promoting e-books to appeal to those who received tablets as Christmas gifts.

|I have a Playbook, does all I need, more convienient than a laptop or desktop, for browsing etc So why not, main functions of a pc I still use, Banking etc, would not do that on a tablet, slight move of hand takes you to a different screen, inadvertantly, so PC for all secure stuff, would never rely on a phone for such, I use a phone as a phone, nothing else, oh, Except alarm clock.|
|Oh, forgot to add, I have a life. Does not include the tablet, that just helps things, makes some things easier. I am self employed, using tablet and phone to take payments etc easy, thats what I want in life, Easy. Tablet is not my life, It is a way to get my life, by making business life easy.|
|I have a life, but I have been diagnosed tablets for it.|
|The more I read the more I think my grandparents are right to stay away from technology, my Hamish life beckons me. I think about all the things I could be doing as I happily play freecell on my mac, then I see the irony in the name.|
|If you need to write a comment stating you have a life, you clearly don't|
|Yes! TABLETS are best!|

|The only tablets that ever ruled my life was ecstasy and that was in the 90's where it belonged, fads for the i-people who used to use powerful pc's to facebook and all their not so financially well off wanna be i-people on cheaper devices|
|This is only tablets not life.|
|the reason why so many tablets are sold in the UK is coz they dont last 5 minutes b4 you need to buy a new one... how many of the purchased figures are 2nd or 3rd tablets.... how can you get population %age figures from something so fragile||
