NEW YORK – That was one of the key points in a presentation by analyst Jack Gold at the TabletBiz conference here today.
In a survey of approximately 270 enterprises in North America, J. Gold Associates found that 80% of respondents said tablets would supplement smart phones, and 60% said that tablets would supplement laptops. However, 40% of respondents said tablets would replace laptops altogether.

Announcing its financial results for the second quarter, the firm confirmed that it hit a net profit of $220 million and said that revenue was also up by 13% year-on-year to $9.8 billion.

Breaking down the number some more, the company detailed that smartphone shipments rocketed up 78% year-on-year in the three months to the end of September and said that tablet shipments rose more than four-fold to 2.3 million units.

Verizon says the 7-inch Android Ellipsis 7 is the first product “in the Ellipsis family” which could mean additional tablets and/or smartphones under that brand could be in the works.
Priced at $249.99 ($100 off with a new two-year contract for Internet service), the Ellipsis has a decent package of specs for the price starting with 4G LTE connectivity.
While not a high end “Retina” class display, the 1280 x 800 7-inch HD display is more than adequate. The Ellipsis runs Android 4.2.2, and includes a single 3.2 megapixel rear camera, 8 GB internal storage plus an SD card slot, 1GB of RAM and a 1.2 GHZ quad-core processor.
Nice feature you [...]
