Google announced to abandon the tablet business

1 min read

Yesterday, an official Google spokesperson announced that the company officially abandoned the tablet business, while several unreleased devices that are being prepared were also canceled.

This means that Google will not launch any tablet products from now on, and Google tablets currently on the market will still receive Google support. The essential reason is, of course, the shrinking tablet market and the poor sales of Google’s tablets.

The two top manufacturers (ASUS & Google) have given up the tablet market, which means that it is difficult for Apple to meet strong rivals. At present, the tablet market has the highest Apple market share. It’s hard to say why users are not willing to choose a tablet with Android, but the application for the tablet on the Android platform is lacking.

Apple will continue to operate the iPadMini series for a long time to come, but as the smartphone screen gets bigger and bigger, the tablet will eventually die.
