Report Apple to Ship 300M Tablets by End of 2013
A market research firm predicts Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) will ship 300
million tablets before the end of the year, further building the
anticipation for Quantum International Corp.'s release of its innovative
new line of iPad cases into the $2.3 billion iPad accessories market.
Respected market research firm Gartner predicts the tech business will
continue to flourish through the second half of 2013, with tablet sales
seeing a 67.9 percent increase from last year. There are likely many
reasons for the increase, including the predicted release of the fifth
generation iPad later this summer, consumers opting for the lighter,
mobile tablet over bulky PCs, and the increased use of iPads by
professionals such as pilots, contractors and medical personnel.
