Over the last few decades, significant progress has been witnessed with how tasks are carried out. Generally, consumers have shown an interest in using smaller devices, for example, the use of tablets. One of the most important reasons that make individuals opt to use tablets over personal computers is its effectiveness in multitasking. The paper will discuss the advantages of the device from the perspective of hardware, software and demographics to analyze the replacement trend. The analysis explores the factors that will possibly influence the further preference of customers, suggesting that hardware’s accessories, the development of cloud gaming technology may play a essential role in the later process. The demographic part shows tablet’s using habits do vary from age to occupation, which turns out that the use of tablet is related with socio-demographic characteristics. Therefore, though tablet industry seems to be a promising industry, some efforts need to be made inevitably.
