Report Summary:

The standalone tablet has gone from meteoric rise to uninspired in record time. Sandwiched between larger phone/phablets and full function 2-in-1’s, the simple slate form factor has become a nice-to-have rather than a must-have device. Is there still life left for this segment? Join us for a fresh look at where the industry can maximize the value of this device for new use cases and relevancy.

We will examine such questions as – Has the content subsidized tablet market been fully explored, from video entertainment to education? Is there an untapped segment for ruggedized tablets that will hit a sweet spot for kids? For college students? Will the journey from 4G to 5G ease of provisioning and “tactile” connectivity bring new opportunities? What does a potentially expanding laptop travel ban portend for a more compact slate form factor?

In this session we’ll share our expert opinions and research on key segments to help you find the right path for your business.
