Tablet shipments to rise 53% this year: Gartner

Combined worldwide shipments of major consumer devices--personal computers, tablets and mobile phones--are expected to grow 4.5% this year from 2012, driven by a shift to lower-priced devices in nearly all categories, according to industry researcher Gartner Inc. (IT).

Device shipments are expected to reach 2.32 billion units this year, with growing tablet and mobile phone sales more than making up for declining sales of PCs.

Tablet shipments are set to rise 53% this year, reaching 184 million units, then 263 million units next year.
