In 2010 the Tame Apple Press told the world that tablets that Microsoft had wasted a decade trying to sell were “game-changers” and created a unique fad – a tech toy without a purpose.
In just six years tablets have disappeared. There weren’t any tablets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and no one is really interested.
Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG didn’t have any new tablets and did not mention them during their conferences. Lenovo has released some cheap Android tablets. Huawei announced the MateBook which is more of a Surface Pro-like device running Windows 10 for laptops.
