Who needs a tablet when you're already carrying one around in your pocket.

Posted July 31st, 2014 @ 5:06pm by WOOD RADIO NEWS TEAM

Given a choice, which would you rather. A tablet, a desktop computer or a smartphone.

Tablets are still popular and sales are growing -- 11% last quarter, to be precise, according to tech consultancy IDC.

Still, that's a far cry from two years ago, when tablets were growing at a 60% clip. Meanwhile, the iPad has been in the doldrums, posting a 9% sales decline last quarter, which was preceded by a 16% slump the quarter before that.

Is this the end of the tablet?
