Abstract: We investigated hardware and software trends in tablet computers released during the market explosion. Market explosion was defined by the release of 4+ devices in a fiscal quarter. We compared a total of 82 tablet computers released between February 2011 and December 2012. Computers were analyzed on processor speed, weight, battery life, and pixel density. Data was analyzed in accordance to the fiscal quarter. Our results indicate the market trending toward a hybrid device between tablets and laptops.
