Due to the recent rise in technology usage, Pakistan is also one of the many countries where the use and production, of state of the art tablets is becoming common. Many believe that due to the ease of usage and mobility found in the use of tablets, desktops and laptops alike will slowly be replaced.
Tablets are being produced in various sizes and are being sold at various prices by several hardware and software companies. Due to the competitive nature of these companies, tablets are available in a modest variety in Pakistan. Although tablets have penetrated the Pakistani market, the lack of high speed mobile internet, dampens the effect of tablet availability. However the introduction of high speed internet and at some point the lowering of tariffs could present us with a remarkable rise in tablet users.
