Android tablets do not seem to survive 2017
MobileHeadlines we treat hardly Android tablets. That is not the unwillingness on our part because if there is an interesting new product, you can rest assured that you read quickly about this. The problem lies with the manufacturers, Android operating system for tablets slowly seem to depreciate.
You can see clearly in the number of new devices appearing, and the major manufacturers are all investing in the market. A few years ago spent Samsung, Huawei, LG and Sony tablets every few months in all price ranges. Whatever size or price you looked, there was always a good Android tablet to choose from.
Google also seems to have forgotten the tablet market. During the annual Google I / O developer conference, the company showed numerous new features for Android, plus some interesting new apps. However, they were all displayed on smartphones. Where Google in previous versions of Android has promised improvements for tablet users, the focus is now fully on smartphones. Even wearable, another ‘forgotten’ product received more attention during Google I / O.
Samsung released last year only one tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3. Between the new model and its predecessor, in addition, there was a period of two years. LG and Sony seem to have withdrawn completely. It was Huawei this week finally introduced a new Android tablet, the MediaPad Lite M3, and T3 MediaPad. Looking for an Android tablet, you’re almost at the mercy of budget models of vague brands.
There are still opportunities in the tablet market, but they are – including Google – are too often neglected. When started Android on tablets, the company seemed to see the devices as smartphones with a larger screen. Apps were not optimized for tablets but were simply made larger. That caused a lot of white space, inefficient layout and really just ugly apps.
