The most popular device in the mobile online technology sector is that of the tablet. It is hard to believe that Steve Jobs announced the launch of the first iPad only on January 27,2010 at a conference in San Francisco. Since then the tablet market has been one of the fastest growing and dynamic markets in the online sector.

The tablet device has become so popular in such a short space of time that many believe that it will in the near future replace the cumbersome PC.

Tablet devices have become increasingly popular with online gamblers who are using their portability and constant online abilities to play and enjoy all their favorite mobile casino games. Mobile scratch cards and slots are particularly suited for these devices. Casino sites have specially adapted mobile apps to enable the players to have a flutter whenever they so choose.

In the latest data released by Research firm IHS iSuppli , it was once again confirmed that Apple’s iPad is the undisputed leader in the tablet market. In the second quarter of 2012 they managed to grab a massive 69.6% of the entire tablet market with its arch rivals, Samsung only capturing 9.2% of the market. Apple shipped over 17 million units worldwide. To put this in perspective their other “competitors” Amazon and Asus only grabbed 4.2% and 2,8% respectively of the market share.

The secret to Apple’s continued success in the tablet arena is due largely to their exceptional technology employed and also by offering their consumers the iPad 2 at an attractive price. Added to this is their expected 7 inch tablet which is set to be released in September, Apple seem unstoppable at the moment.

Their 7 inch tablet is set to compete in the 7 inch tablet market which has attracted attention from the likes of Google with their Nexus and Amazon with their Kindle Fire.

According to  director of tablet and monitor research for IHS, Rhoda Alexander,” Apple’s major media tablet rivals, Google and Microsoft, hope to challenge Apple in the second half of the year, but will be facing formidable headwinds with no sign that the market leader is backing off of its aggressive strategy in the market.”
