The latest numbers from market research firm IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker show that Apple remains the largest vendor in a declining tablet market, shipping 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter of 2015. While the iPad continues to be the best-selling tablet, its worldwide market share fell below 25% as Apple faced increased competition from low-cost rivals Lenovo, Huawei and LG.

With phones hitting 5.5-6.0" now, there's very little need for tablets.

The only reason to buy a new tablet is if the old one is broken. I had a 10ยจ one bricked it. Got a nexus 7 nice price, decent (if small) screen and android updates.

But I wanted something larger. After walking around the department store found that I really liked the surface pro 3, good hires screen, 2:3 form, but didn't like the price and Windows 10.

So I settled on a 13 inch Toshiba Cromebook, 13" 1920x1080 IPS screen, decent keyboard, nice trackpad. lightweight, battery life is good. Browses quick enough and only 324 euro (incl. tax/shipping)
