http://www.thevarguy.com – Gartner has released a new worldwide tablet sales forecast, covering 2012 through 2016. But… Can you really trust a Gartner forecast for a bunch of products that don’t exist (example: Windows 8 tablets) and a product family whose future is at risk (example: RIM QNX). Here’s the tablet spin from The VAR Guy. According to Gartner, worldwide tablet sales will grow from 119 million units in 2012 to 369 million units in 2016. Gartner also offers tablet market share predictions for Apple iOS (the iPad operating system), Google Android, Microsoft and QNX during the forecast period. (IT news)
