10 Android Tablets Making Mobile Life Better: The 2022 CRN Mobile 100
Android tablets have a lot going for them – there’s a whole range of products that offer a wide array of performance and value. CRN takes a look at some of the best Android tablets on the market in 2022.
Many competitors would love to dethrone Apple as the leader in tablets, and with the number of competitors chasing the crown, we get to see a lot of solid efforts. The tablet market is cooling off and finding a new middle ground after two years of solid pandemic-spurred growth. According to IDC, 2021 saw an overall growth of 3.2 percent over 2022 numbers with 168.8 million units shipped, the market’s highest number since 2016.
“Though 2021 was a great year for the tablet market, shipments have begun to decelerate as the market has moved past peak demand across many geographies,” said Anuroopa Nataraj, a senior researcher at IDC, in a statement. “Shipments in the near future will remain above pre-pandemic levels as virtual learning, remote work and media consumption remain priorities for users.”
Samsung, Lenovo, and Amazon are all top contenders in the tablet space, making up more than 35 percent of the market share combined. While they still have a ways to go before toppling the mighty iPad, the competitors are giving it their all with great specs and unique features.
