The tablet market is the biggest growth area in tech today, so it's very closely followed by analysts. It's very highly emphasized by the biggest players in the space, as well. Traditionally, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was able to hold this market by a safe margin, with its iPad and iPad Mini allowing the company to hit multiple screen sizes and price points, but the competition in this area is rapidly ramping up.
