Tablets are enjoying greater popularity again. After the sales figures were in decline for a long time, they rose again for the first time in 2020 compared to the previous year – by an impressive 18.6 percent. That was the result of an analysis by the US market research company IDC, based in Framingham near Boston. It is surprising that it is not big names like Apple that benefit from this trend, but rather manufacturers of cheap tablets. Companies like Amazon or Lenovo saw the greatest growth with an increase of more than 50 percent. IDC suspects that the high demand for affordable tablets is due to the contact restrictions during the corona pandemic. Consumers have increasingly resorted to tablets to distract themselves, to chat with family via zoom, to work in the home office or to receive further training.

Can the 100 euro tablets compete with the iPad & Co.?

However, you shouldn’t expect too much from these cheap tablets. Of course, they cannot compete with models like the iPad, the Galaxy Tab or the Windows Surface. For their very low price, however, they offer you all the functions you could want on a tablet. They also show no defects, which was also confirmed by the experts from Stiftung Warentest, who gave these three models a “satisfactory” quality rating. That’s why we can recommend these tablets to you without hesitation.
