Tablets are a growing market, and with that ever-expanding market are all types of consumers. There are also various kinds of tablets. So just what do all these people use their tablets for? Website Social Nuggets (via BusinessDay) has managed to pull together the data and put it into nice, easy-to-read pie charts.
Android tablets are widely used for Shopping, according to Social Nuggets’ data. Business is also a major use for the tablets and news and magazines sitting third and games fourth.
The iPad is used mainly for business. That’s actually a little bit of a surprise as games is second (a category we thought had a chance of being first) mainly because if you look at app development popularity, games tend to rank in at the top.
Did you remember that BlackBerry has a tablet? It’s called the PlayBook, and it was hyped up for a while. Then it released, and everyone forgot about it. Well, not everyone. Apparently, it’s being used by consumers, but they are mostly on the business end.
