Tablets are dead

To be fair, if you looked hard enough, you could find an Android tablet or two hidden in a corner of the Fira Gran Via. And Apple, the tablet leader, doesn’t come to MWC. But it’s safe to say that tablets are not the future for the Samsungs and LGs of the consumer electronics world.

In fact, Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG didn’t have any new tablet to announce. They didn’t even mention tablets during their conferences. It’s not just that people don’t care about tablets anymore — the big electronics companies themselves aren’t even trying to release new products for this market anymore.

The above from TechCrunch sums up the situation, but it is one that few sites mentioned. I can’t remember one tablet from MWC. Not just the fact that there were few innovations, the fact that I can’t remember even one being announced.
