Tablet Sales over 2011 Holidays Provide Enormous Growth

During the 2011 holiday season, many tablets were flying off the shelves in retail stores and warehouses all across the country. Many companies entered the tablet market right around the holiday season making it especially easy for consumers to chose a product that met both their needs and there budget. With tablets out like the Amazon Kindle Fire, HP's touchpad, and more selling below the $200 mark, its no wonder the market for tablets seen a 9% jump in growth between November and January. That 9% growth moved the ownership percentage from 10 to 19 in only a matter of months. Other products like the Barnes and Noble Nook and Amazon Kindles eReaders also seen a huge growth in ownership across the US.
According to a recent study, the tablet market seen most of its growth in the market segment of people with household incomes above $75,000 a year and also in homes where the owner has a higher level of education.  This growth is huge for the tablet market and just goes to show how technology is moving from the laptop to a even more portable and user friendly travel device.
