For the first time ever, tablet traffic has exceeded smartphone traffic which signifies question that people have been asking for a long time; are tablets really here to stay?
In the new release of stats by Adobe, called the digital index, the latest numbers say that tablets make up for 8% of web traffic, while smartphones make up 7%.
Since June, 2007 Adobe has been tracking 100 billion visits to more than 1,000 websites. Using the statistics from that, they have come to the above conclusion.
Consider the fact that smartphones have been out for over 10 years, this is very promising for tablet makers. The first iPad was released in 2010, and the first Kindle (the only Amazon product capable of browsing the internet) didn't come out until 2011.
The question is, can this be sustained?
