According to IDC’s forecast, tablet sales in EMEA, which includes Europe, the Middle East and Africa, will grow 17.1% this quarter over the same period in 2020. This is due to the purchase of tablets for educational use. Throughout the region, various government programs are being implemented to provide students with personal computers or to subsidize their purchase.
“At the beginning of 2021, the market will be shaped by significant supplies in the education sector, with large volumes expected to be sent to both developed and developing countries,” explains Nikolina Jurisic of IDC. “Additionally, tablet demand is expected to benefit from shortages of components such as integrated circuits and panels, primarily affecting entry-level notebooks as this category stands out as an alternative for price-sensitive consumers.”
Despite strong performance in the first quarter, the EMEA tablet market is projected to shrink 10.5% overall for 2021. This is due to the fact that the demand generated by the pandemic will be almost completely satisfied. In the period from 2021 to 2025, tablet sales in the region under consideration will decline by an average of 2.76% per year.
New version of Honor Tablet 8 released
In July, Honor held a new product launch conference and officially unveiled the Honor 8 tablet. Now, a new version of the Honor Tablet 8 with 8 GB of RAM in Dawning Blue color has been released. The green version will be released on August 31st.
The Honor Tablet 8 features a 12-inch 2000 x 1200 pixel LCD screen with a 10:6 aspect ratio and 1.07 billion colors. The width of the screen frame is 7.2 mm. The effective display area is 87%.
Honor Tablet 8 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 single-chip system, two 5 megapixel cameras and a 7250 mAh battery. Honor Tablet 8 received eight speakers, which are rarely seen in tablets of the same class, as well as support for DTS and Hi-Res Audio.
The tablet uses the latest version of Magic UI 6.1.
Pixel Tablet may get 64-bit Android OS
In 2023, Google plans to bring the Pixel Tablet to the market, but the announcement is expected in the current. And yet, judging by some reports, the new tablet will come with 64-bit software. This means that it will not be able to run 32-bit applications.
This is indicated by a find made by Esper senior editor Mishaal Rahman. He revealed that Google is testing a 64-bit build of Android 13 on a device codenamed Tangor, which is believed to be the Pixel Tablet.
Since mid-2019, Google has required developers to include 64-bit support for software packages that are published to the Play Store. Thus, the company is smoothly preparing the ground for the transition to a 64-bit OS. It is noted that the latest or regularly supported applications and games in the Play Store should work on such a system without problems. Questions may arise only if you run old or not adapted programs.
As for the reasons for moving to 64-bit, the end of support for 32-bit applications will reduce the size of the codebase, speed up work, and may reduce the memory consumption of applications.
At the same time, there are still smartphones and tablets with 32-bit processors on the market. It is not yet clear whether the company will wait for their natural obsolescence or not.
Earlier, Mishaal Rahman said that Xiaomi proposed blocking the ability to install APK files from third-party sources.
