Why tablet marketing is totally different than mobile marketing

The primary reason marketers need to consider a specific tablet strategy is that smartphones are far more mobile, can’t-leave-home-without-it, devices. Tablets? Actually, almost the reverse; they’re far more commonly used in the home by consumers.
