By more than 10 percent of the global tablet market in 2015 has collapsed. The sales decline may now have found a prominent victim: Sony. Rumor has it that the Japanese company is to completely withdraw from the tablet sale.
If even tablet king Apple has to accept with its iPads heavy losses as it may look like only for the rest of the industry? Obviously not good if you will trust the market analyst firm IDC. According to their calculations of the tablet market in 2015 fell by 10.1 percent to only 206.8 million copies. From the initial hype that has even seen in tablets the beginning of the end of classical computer is not much left. Sony that now could withdraw completely from the shrinking tablet market, would thus fit into the dreary image.
Basis of relevant rumors is a Sony store manager in Japan who is to receive information clearly, after which the advertisement for Sony's own Xperia Tablets ends in March. While there should be merely to wireless devices so far, see some votes in the announcement but a sign that the tradition manufacturer could pass out of the tablet market soon complete. That Sony has for the first time made the Xperia Z5 series since 2013, no tablet aside, is interpreted as a further indication in this direction.
Sony Tablets: High selling price and iPad competition
Although the tablets of the Japanese cut in tests in the past from regularly excellent, but had always to fight because of their relatively high starting price with the iPad competition, thanks to iOS and the number of enabled apps in the eyes of many customers a better tablet experience bot. In 2013, tablets attended for only 5 percent of sales, which could bring in Sony. Given the high development and marketing costs and - not least because of the increasingly popular smartphones in the phablet form factor - shrinking overall tablet market, it is quite possible that those responsible of the group see no future in the petting computers.
So far, however, these are only rumors, which were neither confirmed nor denied by Sony. We'll keep you up to date accordingly as soon as there is new information.
