2 1/2 years ago this aisle did not exist in Wal-Mart:
A few weeks back I bragged about some iPad numbers but is it fair to say I bragged? I do not mean brag as in being cocky and rubbing it in the faces of others I mean bragging as in what I said was true. Tablets have been around for a lot longer than the iPad has but nobody cared nor wasted their money on those products. The folks who did buy them probably wished they had not wasted those green Gods on said devices.
Walk into a Best Buy, Target, or Wal-Mart today and you will be greeted with aisles of tablets and tablet accessories. Thank Apple and the iPad. Matter of fact when I walked into Best Buy again this weekend I set out to count the aisles of tablets vs. aisles of laptops/desktops. You can go ahead and stick a fork in the desktops, that era has come and gone with little fanfare. By my count the tablets had just as many aisles as the laptops did. The accessories won out 3 to 1 over laptops accessories. That is probably not fair because there is not much you can do to a laptop, with tablets you can have all types of screen protectors, cases, folios, etc. The fact reamins though, tablets are here to stay and they are taking over!
Decided to go to Wal-Mart today to do the same thing. 1 aisle of laptops, 3 aisles of tablets. So if you love your tablet no matter what brand it is be thankful for Apple for creating the hype for tablet devices.
