Detachable 2-in-1 tablets are a niche within which Acer, Asus and HP are competing successfully against tablet-market heavyweights Apple and Samsung, according to a press release.

Overall, the tablet market will decline 4 percent this year. Growth will be modest in 2016 as more innovative designs and enabling technology in 2-in-1 and Slate tablets, according to the market research company.


Microsoft’s Windows-based Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 and the boom in 2-in-1 tablet sales will result in the market share of Windows tablets reaching 10 percent in 2015.

“The timing could not be better for 2-in-1 Tablets as Windows 10 makes the multi-mode computing experience smoother, Intel’s Skylake processors hit the market at the end of 2015, and Windows Tablets have become more cost-competitive with Android Tablets,¨ Tablet & Touchscreen Strategies service director, Peter King said.

¨Windows provides a familiar environment for traditional PC vendors to compete in the Tablet market and also gives CIOs a higher level of comfort when considering higher-end Tablets in the commercial setting.”
